We are here at what we believe to be the most beautiful RV park in all of North America. South Shore RV Park in Sodus Point New York sites on the shores of Lake Ontario. There are about 12 RV sites that back up to this view overlooking the lake. Stunning views from these backin and pullin RV sites of Lake Ontario. These million dollar views can be had for just over $40 per night and the folks that come here… know about it and often spend their entire days sitting out enjoying the view.

As an RVer destination Sodus Point is probably not even on your radar… it wasn’t on ours, we stumbled upon it and fell in love with the area. There is abundant farming around the region and local farm stands selling fresh fruit always available and fun little playgrounds and play areas throughout the area and surrounding communities.

In the town there is 2 lighthouses, a historic one and a working one, along with docks, beaches, play areas, grass areas, and a fun little downtown. We challenge you to find a RV park prettier than we did here in Sodus Point. takes user submitted videos combined with professional editing to provide tent and RV campers with a first person view of a campground or RV park.

Grand Design Recreational Vehicle Company today announced its lightweight travel trailers.Imagine travel trailer

The Imagine travel trailer series is the follow up to the firm’s Reflection travel trailers and fifth wheels, flagship Solitude extended stay fifth wheels and popular Momentum toy haulers.

“Following the bar set by these brands, Imagine stays true to the company’s commitment of focusing on the customer to steer design and fuel innovation,” said General Manager Micah Staley.

With floorplans starting well under 6,000 pounds, Imagine travel trailers hit the towing sweet spot of today’s medium duty trucks and SUVs, he added

“We wanted Imagine to not only hit the weight goals, but do it without the compromise that so many feel forced to in the pursuit of lighter weight. Industry leading tank capacities, 30-by-36-inch walk in shower, 60-by-80-inch queen beds and 81-inch interior radius ceilings are just a few of the areas where customers will no longer have to sacrifice,” said Staley.”The early buzz from dealers and customers point to another home run for Grand Design.”

Imagine travel trailers debut on dealers’ lots the first week of August.
