Only nine miles north of Watkins Glen, Smith Park has been developed in a pleasant and natural setting along the eastern shoreline of Seneca Lake. This is a community waterfront park with camping and picnicking facilities, a boat launch, swimming beach, pavilions, and showers. ​Over 2,000 feet of lake frontage provides an expansive lakeside beach. Camping is on a daily/weekly basis with a maximum of two weeks on any site. All sites offer water hookups. In addition, our sites are offered with or w/o electric hookups. We have two shower/toilet facilities located in the park and a dump station on site for the use of our campers. Rent a pavilion at one of the two pavilions we have on site. Upper pavilion capacity is up to 100 with electricity. The lower pavilion capacity is 40-50 with electricity. Please call for current rates. Launch your boat with one of our daily launch passes, available for $5.00 or season launch passes, available for $35.00 (No charge for registered campers). Passes can be purchased at the park during the season or at the Hector Town Hall in the off season. For commercial boat launch dock use please call the office for permit application and fee scale.
