This "camp" is, to paraphrase the check-in clerk, A Parking Lot! Bare bones, plain; white stripes on the lot to designate one's slot. No sanitary hookup - just water and electricity; there's a dump station. Also several "dry sites." WiFi worked well. Plan your approach in advance. The park is about 1 mi south of the Holland tunnel at the end of Marin Blvd. Garmin found it. It's the approach that can bamboozle drivers and avoid coming during rush hour. Oh: they do have a few tent sites - very innovative with AstroTurf - a first for this experienced camper. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Leave rig at camp; take the Path train to/from City; 10 min walk to station. First stop in Manhattan: "Freedom Tower" (World Trade Center). Path connects with subway trains goes to central Manhattan. Ferry: from the marina the Wall Street area. If you wanna visit NYC and are travelling with a camper/RV, this is the most convenient and, a least, it is cheaper than a hotel/motel!

I knew this was a parking lot going in. The one thing I didn't count on is this: There is a private tent camping area enclosed by a fence next to the restrooms/showers. It looked miserable in the 95-100 degree heat. They also use the facilities for everything. No need to memorize the security code to the restroom, the doors are all propped open by the campers all the time. I rarely found toilet paper and the showers were a step above a filthy. The sites are beyond close, our Honda CRV fit slid in next to us at an angle partially under the awning. Your are gonna see your neighbors every move, you are that close. Yes it's close to New York City, however the picture on their website is not what you see. It's a lot farther than that. The Statue of Liberty if slightly recognizable over the cars, buses, truck, boats, etc. The prices to get into the city are cheaper than a hotel. We were a group of 4 and it cost us $20.00 a day per person using Metro cards. You have to purchase a separate card to get into NY from NJ, they don't play well together. The Ferry across is $7.00 one way per person. Advertised on their flyer and website is a 10 minute 5 block walk...Nope. More like 25 minutes and 9 blocks, I counted. It's a safe enough walk, just not as close they are advertising. If you are RVing it's really the only choice. I've stayed in the city lots of times and hotels in NYC beat RVs every time. It's just not fun coming out of a Broadway show or shopping late knowing you have a 25 minute walk after all the subways back to your site. I mite stay here again, but just park the RV and get a room in the city. The traversing back and fourth is just too inconvenient in my opinion. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When making a reservation request an end site. No dump at your site, there can be a line for the dump station mornings. Limited subway service and no Ferry service on weekends. Currently there is lots of subway work at the WTC / PATH site. It will be nice, just not yet. 9 blocks not 5. New Jersey metro and NYC metro do not work with each other.

We want to be fair about this park since we had read all the prior reviews and don't want to be biased by them. We had electricity (50 amps) and water, no sewer. They offered "honey wagon" services at $20, but after reading the bad reviews on this service, we decided to conserve as best we could and use the public showers/bathrooms (especially since you had to pay in advance and schedule it when you check in). They gave us a 45-ft site. Our motor home is 35 feet and we were pulling a car (Honda CRV) and felt this size would be sufficient for us (a squeeze, but adequate as we've been in 45-ft sites before). However, there is no way we could fit our car in front of our rig and we had to squeeze our car on the side, overlapping into the next site as the sites are not very wide either. We would estimate the length of our site to be 38 ft, not 45. We noted that other sites had the same difficulty if they were pulling a vehicle. The next complaint is the bathrooms. The ladies' room didn't have a lock and were not clean, and there was no soap in the dispensers. My husband said the men's rooms were okay because he compared it to other 'marina' facilities (which are typically not very clean). The noise levels, especially on Saturday night, were high. There was a club across the parking lot that attracted the locals and at closing time, there was a loud shouting match between 2-3 people that lasted about 30 minutes (we realize that this is not the fault of the park, but should be considered due to its location). The sites are too close together. However, all that said, the location is what the attraction to this park is. It is convenient to the ferries and to the NJ subway to NY, about a 4-6 block walk. Our destination was New York City, and this park allowed us to get there daily because it is conveniently located. The Wi-Fi was adequate, our Dish satellite was great, and our Verizon cell phone service terrific. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you bring your bicycles, you can take them on the Ferry, which was a nice surprise to us. New York and New Jersey have a lot of beautiful designated bicycle trails, and this saved us a day of walking the streets of NYC. We actually pedaled across the Brooklyn Bridge. If you do this, make sure you are keenly aware of where you can gain access to the bridge because we ended up riding around many city streets trying to find our way as the signs seemed to suddenly stop.

Location, location, location - that is what gives this park a high rating. The park is easily accessible from the Interstate. Once there, it is a 10-min walk to the subway or ferry to New York City, putting all major attraction an hour or less from the RV park. The park itself is ordinary - 50 RV sites in what is a large parking lot next to a marina. There is good 50 amp service and water available. There is no sewer hookup, so arrive with empty tanks, and plan to use the dump station or their mobile sewer service. Wi-Fi is adequate but slow. so we used our hot spot much of the time.The staff is helpful and explained to us how to reach the places we wished to go using the subway or ferry. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

We dry camped the first 3 nights ($50 a night). We got into a regular site for the next 4 days($85 a night). We had water and 50 amp electric. This park is not one to write home about but the location is the best. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

The best and unique value of this campsite is its location: forehead against the Liberty Tower in New York. Rest is very ordinary and has fewer services than many campsites. What they charge does not correspond with what you get, except the situation. It is very expensive.
No sewage drain, output only when you leave.
The plots are very fair and narrow, are practically RV RV.
Moreover, the staff is very attentive and we solucinaron a subject of the tires on the spot. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Weekly rate with Good Sam discount. Sites are wider than expected for a parking lot CG and about 45' long. The high-rise going up next door starts with the pile driver as early as 7 a.m. and it's intermittent throughout the day. OK if you're an early riser and spend the day in NYC. Quiet enough at night, except when the nearby bar has live music. Plenty of OTA channels and HUs were fine. Verizon signal wasn't great. Bathrooms are older, fairly clean, with plenty of hot water and good pressure but some temperature fluctuation. Showers are roomy and each has a small changing area with a bench/shelf and hook. Scheduled a $20 honey wagon for 9 a.m. At 1 we were told it would be another 20 minutes. Finally showed up after 3, and couldn't figure it out on their own. Given that we wasted a whole day, I should have hitched up and used the dump station. Of course a CG in this area will be pricey, but public transit is soooo convenient. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice Farmer's Market at the transit station on Mon and Thurs afternoons. The waterfront walkway is a nice bike ride in both directions. Also a short ride to the Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty ferry. (Use the back gate of the marina parking lot, make a left at Jersey, go over the walking bridge, then left onto the path just past the stop sign.) If the gate is closed (weekends), ride down Marin Blvd., turn left immediately after the light rail, go straight until you can make the left at Jersey.

This is an old crummy parking lot. BUT it rates a 10 because it is just across the Hudson River from New York City. The 11st Street Ferry docks right at the rv park. Cost in early May was $7/person each way. What a super convenience for visiting NYC, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island!! One block walk into a gentrified part of Jersey City with high rise condos and renovated brownstones. Plus excellent restaurants. Hookups, WIFI and cable were good. Spaces very close together - to be expected. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit New York City, see Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty Island. Need to order tickets for these two islands very early. Check out Hard Hat tour on Ellis Island - amazing.

When we were driving through the city while enroute my initial thoughts of the surroundings was that I was making a big mistake. Once we turned off the main st to the RV park it went from a congested city to one that reminded me of Newport, RI. We can see huge private boats mooring and leaving the harbor. The view of Ellis Island and the the back of the Statue of Liberty was awesome.

It's not a pretty lot, it serves a purpose of water/electric but the views of the NYC skyline are incredible. The bathrooms were clean and the staff were accommodating. This is not a typical camping site as it's devoid of grass and trees etc. For it's location it is quiet.

If you're looking for the a typical camping experience this is not the place...if you're looking for a great value of staying in or near NYC this is definitely the place. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

It's a 10 min walk to the Grove St Path train station is what clinches this place for us. $2.75 trip and in 20 min you're on 34th St (Macy's) or the WTC site. The Grove St station is quiet with lots of small shops and restaurants more importantly a Starbucks as well.

You can also walk a few hundred yards and take the ferry for $7 which crosses the Hudson and leaves you near the Stanton Island Ferry. Also Delivery.com allowed us to order Chinese food which was brought to our Trailer.

Most convenient rv park to nyc. Electric service was terrible, during the day, surge protector cautioned bad electricity, reverse polarity, grounding issues. Neighboring pedestals experienced the same. Electric pedestals need to be checked & upgraded. Still useable, but risk damage to electronics. Staff on phone depended on who you got, some knew what they were doing, others could not even find reservation. Staff in person were very friendly. Online reservation does not send email automatically, have to call to confirm. Sites are not perfectly level, but useable. Strict in person 11am checkout required or $40 fine. $92 rate includes taxes and fees. Free wifi did not work at all. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

PATH subway to NYC 10 minute walk. Ferry does not operate on weekends. Mudflap of motorhome may drag upon steep entrance road.

You know that nightmare you have that you will arrive at an RV park and there will be a construction site next door? This is it. Right on the other side of the fence is the construction site for a 12 story apartment building. The "pile driver" begins at 7am.

They give no refunds. I guess because there is so much noise already, they allow anything else. Dogs barking. Their own bulldozer at 7am.

The great location is true. But if you stay for more than 48 hours you'll hate yourself. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

As mentioned on previous reviews the value in this park is its access to NYC. Sites are small with very little space left over, especially when the Rv slides are extended. If possible I would recommend sites closer to the office area/front commuter parking lot. Lots of noisy construction that starts promptly by 7:30am by back area sites. In addition, noticed lots of dirt blowing in from the construction area onto the back part of the camp sites. Our hookups were in good working order. Bathrooms/showers were okay. Staff was professional. At night place quiets down enough where sleeping was not an issue. Wi-Fi & Verizon cell was at a minimum signal. We would return again.

While this is a parking lot with water and electric, for the location, it is impossible to beat. You have multiple options for public transport to NYC, arriving at the World Trade Center. You have access to the NPS Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty ferries on the New Jersey side, way less crowded than the NYC side and all the same access. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I read the reviews from a few years back and was a bit concerned, however, no issues at all. One note, the night club that is adjacent to the park was closed for the winter, so cannot comment on that. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walk to the NY Waterway Ferry to NYC at the foot of Essex Street. Runs every 15 minutes and goes right to the World Trade Center. Walk to Liberty Park, NJ to take the NPS Ferry to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty, way less crowded than the Ferry from the NYC side.

We stayed here 3 nights in order to visit NYC. It's definitely urban camping, but with water, electric and a dump station (or a honey pot if you need emptied at your site) what else do you need? Very convenient transportation to the city via the NY Waterway and/or the PATH train. Very helpful staff. The tour company New York Tours will pick you up right at the RV Park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

All the previous reviewers comments are true, it is basically a parking lot with power and water - note No sewer (does have a dump station) but it is just so convenient for the PATH subway to NYC and also has shopping and cinemas close by. Just up the street is a little pub where I had one of the best steaks of my life. Having never been to NYC I was concerned about taking a wrong road and emailed the staff beforehand and received good reliable instructions. One comment of importance you are not allowed to have propane on some bridges and in tunnels so check this out. WiFi might as well be none existent as it was out for 4 out of 7 days so if this is important to you make other plans. Restrooms are old but reasonable. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
