We just were there for 1 week. I had read that there were no insect problem, but we were there week after July 4 and there were deer flies, and some other fly that was HUGE and misquitos to the extent they drove us MAD. We were in Loop F. Says water sites, and yes they do have access via a path. 122 was the closest, and we
 
    could get our dogs in the water with a 5' sandy area, but the sun didnt shine on our cove area, the files were there, and we had to float out in a tube to get the sun and go past junky water to get out where the flies and clean water
 were. It was OK. All the other sites were beautiful in the sun and pines. We picked these sites to have 3 that were water access to tie up the boats. The flow is between two dams and the level goes up and down 4 feet, so we took out overnight. There were sandbars everywhere, but you could get to open water to tube. There was a nice ''old beach'' area that people rafted up at or beached boats in the sand shorline, and got out and sat in a beautiful sandy area.  
    But there were dogs and people everywhere there....we of course had 8 dogs in our group of 5 families. There was little access to the water with dogs. The beach was clean and nice. The vb court was at the beach/picnic area and was
  nice. The showers were not busy, but not cleaned by their people. Papers and old soap and hair in the drain. I don't mean a little hair I mean a baseball sized clumps every day. But the stalls were clean and newer. Toilets too. We usually go to fish creek and will try to go back there next year. The fishing was OK. Small mouth bass, big ones, but not many. The one my husband caught he had to throw away because the meat wasnt good, parasites I guess. We took a beautiful drive one day alont the river to 3 other water access sites that were very nice.  
You cluld put a boat in up the Raquette frequently and fish areas between dams. There is a store at the entrance of the park area in Colton, it had everyting. Canton has a P&C and Walmart to shop but is 25 mintues away. Canton also had a movie theatre we went to on a rainy day. Sites Sandy, with notes to not tie ropes to trees. Its a mixed bag for reviews. Its quite. Loop F is very quiet and no through traffic. Most sites are for trailer and are blacktoped, little room left for tents. So getting the right site was important for us tenters..
