Kenisee Lake was just a nice stop over for us on our way to Niagara Falls. The Laundry facilities were too small for the park, so we had to drive in to Jefferson to do the Laundry. Note the tunnel, very few rigs will fit, GO AROUND! Your GPS will insist you go through the tunnel, which is ok if you’re driving a MG Midget pulling a popup trailer. Once you arrive at the park, you will find a very nice park, but there was nothing there to do for the kids, they had nothing. We did not care; we drove out to the lakes. The park has full hookups, but it has a lot of electric and water only. Since you cannot reserve a specific sit there is no guarantee you will get full hookups, likely as not there will be none available.
The main road to the park does not work, one has to drive up to Jefferson and come in from the other side.
