One of the better options when visiting NYC, but I don't plan on returning. The electricity to the campground was intermittent, which posted a big problem on hot days. Most sites are on the small size for a big rig. The campsite is in need of renovation and investment. The county Park as a whole is huge and attracts hundreds and hundreds of people on the weekends. The train station is nearby, but probably too far to walk for most folks. The dumpster area is pretty rough. If the fix the electrical problems, I might give them a look again, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. - Undivided Nation

Been here several times, each time is worse. I don't plan on returning. County workers everywhere riding around on golf carts, but not doing much. Let's start with the bathrooms: heavy mold on the shower curtains, dead bugs everywhere (because the door doesn't close tight and the lights are on all night). Hair, mud, cigarette butts, empty shampoo bottles litter the restrooms. Windows are covered in cobwebs and dead bugs. I've been here a week so far and have only seen the restrooms cleaned once (they need to be cleaned 2x a day). Hoards of city kids bussed in for summer camp walk up from the tent sites and use the same 3 showers / 3 toilets on weekends. 2nd issue: Dumpster stinks and is overflowing most of the time, stray cats everywhere around dumpster. Big sign says "Don't Feed Cats". 3rd issue: Lot's of permanent trailers have been here for years, lots of work trucks, big propane tanks, messy sites. 4th issue: There is a field and hall adjacent to the campground used for family outings/company picnics. Last weekend a large group was there with loud music all day long, and they were playing softball in the field and several balls ended up under my RV and car; I was worried about my rig getting hit. No respect to the campers and kids were running through occupied sites to get water for squirt guns. I didn't drink the tap water because I think it's well water and the campground is adjacent to a huge closed landfill.??? 5th issue: Lots of low branches, the place needs a lot of tree work. All the campers around me have branches scraping their roofs. The Good: Proximity to NYC via train, full hookups, but only 30 amp. Grocery store within a mile. Nice area. - eventanman

Nice county park, well maintained. Roads are wide and paved. Our site was hard packed gravel, nice level site. We were there early in the season so the transient side of the campground was empty. The other side is various RVs and pull trailers that appear to be year-rounders. It was quiet during our stay. Verizon and T-Mobile worked fine here. Price reflects a one week stay. Bathrooms were closed during our stay. They don't provide fire pits but you can bring your own. Customer service in making reservations and checking in left a lot to be desired but it's a county park. They DO recycle here despite what we were told when we asked that specific question - not only separate bins at the park but the grocery store down the road takes cans and bottles. You'd think that, especially since there's a massive landfill capped off at this county park, employees would have an awareness of recycling? Only a couple minor drawbacks: Something was up with our electric pole as over voltage caused our surge protector to trip several times a day. If you live here, you probably get used to the trains running day and night. We didn't during our week's stay. Nice paths to walk around the park and along the river. Lots of people fishing and out enjoying the day use areas during our stay. - Roaming Together

This park has been upgraded since the last time(15 yrs)I was here. Newer looking shower house,and playground for kids. Sites are level, nice size,mixed open and shady,mostly shaded. No fire rings I would think due to droughty summer,but folks with fire bowl were flame on. I use an LP faux fire for the fun of it,and no smoke. - Kennest

We spent a week here while visiting friends and family on Long Island. It is a rustic campground with very few amenities in a lovely wooded setting. There were many seasonal RVers here, though not having a sewer hook-up must be inconvenient! Our site was asphalt, but we had a very hard time getting our RV level. There is no wifi or cable; very poor TV reception. The restrooms were clean, but there are no laundry facilities. We would probably return for a one-week stay. - Lyn T

This was a decent campground, with a number of permanent residents with campers that looked quite run down. A few conversations with other campers indicated that satellite reception is only possible with carryout dishes, due to trees close to most of the sites. There are garbage barrels located throughout the park that are emptied every morning. Our site was rather short, and even with our 30' 5er back as far as we could go without leaving the pavement there was no room for our tow vehicle. The cost of camping here is greatly increased for out of towners, as seems to be the case at every county owned park on Long Island. I guess they don't want NYC people to consume all the spaces that the locals taxes pay for.
Overall, this is a good choice for anyone wanting to visit NYC, as the train can take you into Manhattan to Penn Station cheaply. There you can access the subway to anywhere in the city. - Thorfinn
