Syracuse lies at the edges of the Finger Lakes region, and is a city defined by a history linked to canals. Yet, there is a certain city buzz that when combined with the beauty of the surrounding natural attractions makes for a magical destination; one that is a perfect base for a camping trip. A getaway here wouldn’t be the same without having an amazing accommodation option, which is why it’s a great idea to choose one of these cool places to stay to help complete your time away. Head to Onondaga Lake Park, which has city views amid a serene, green, urban retreat, and fish in the waters. Clark Reservation State Park has a number of nature walks rife with local wildlife, as well as cliff side hikes.
