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.

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.

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. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

Great location to access Manhattan. It took us 30 minutes from the camper to the World Trade Center using the great subway system six blocks from the campground. Friendly staff, quiet at night, and easy to get to from the freeway. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here five times and have found this park to be the best value for the money. The facilities are OK. The staff here are very, very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the local area. This park welcomes children but does not have separate activities for kids. Prior to arriving double check your directions with the staff just to make sure you will not get hung up on a side street. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate $80 plus tax per night. Location is obviously the best feature - super convenient for NYC. We walked to the Path train (easy walk, gentrified area) into Manhattan, ideal for visiting the new 9/11 museum. Took the ferry back from Wall Street (fast and enjoyable, weekdays only - earliest return is 4 p.m. daily. Facilities, however, are somewhat mediocre - rally-style narrow sites on crumbling asphalt + weeds, dirty bathrooms which were, however, cleaned the second day. Poor dogs have to make do with a narrow weed strip along the fence. But the location is unbeatable. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

I was pleasantly surprised by this campground. When you first arrive, they hand you a folder full of information of the area and transportation. Very nice touch! The campground was packed. Our 33 foot was 1 ft away from the trailer behind us. We took the PATH to NYC. It was easy and safe to walk to the PATH. We also went to the restaurant nearby featured in Guy Fieri's show. The kids really liked the pancakes! The dogs had to walk along a narrow strip of grass by the back fence. It was not too bad. Be aware - It was not easy to get to the campground even with the instructions from the campground. If you are not familiar with the area like us, I would recommend that you research the best way to get there and that you are aware of the tolls. The tolls will put a dent in your pocket!

Very convenient to NYC, the subway was a half mile walk. The restrooms were not very clean. The sites are tight. The Wi-Fi was spotty. We would camp here again. It is a parking lot but we were gone all day touring NYC so that didn't matter to us. It is close to the ferry that can take you to the Statue of Liberty. The staff was helpful. We felt safe.

This park was much nicer than we expected. This area of Jersey City is undergoing gentrification and is very nice. Lots of restaurants, pedestrians, generally clean and pleasant. Shopping is nearby. Wifi mostly worked for us, occasionally bogged down due to heavy use. Sites are tight but our 38' MH fit fine. Staff is very helpful and there is 24-hour security. We would stay here again.

Rate here includes taxes and reservation fees. Excellent location and walk to PATH station. But extremely ugly, no grass anywhere. They assign your site when you arrive, never the one we pick online. Beware that RV may drag on new road leading to park. Lots of construction of nearby luxury apartments. Road may be releveled again, hopefully soon. WiFi signal is there, but the internet speed itself is zero, does not work, but is free for now. Bathrooms are super old and dated. Liberty State Park nearby has awesome views of NYC.

First time to New York we went to the next closest campground 1-1/2 hours away and thought to travel in by train because the cost of this place was a bit high. Big mistake! It would have taken us hours and a lot more money to come by train. We ended up coming to Liberty Harbor the next day and we were so glad we did! It truly was easy to find, lots of space and easy to park, and we could walk to the train station that took us to to New York and we did our tourist thing all day and came back at night. Since we spent little time at the park, it mattered not that it was shaded and fancy. It was quiet at night and safe and though it didn't have sewer hookup, we were able to go 4 days before dumping (we have 2 kids) which we did on the way out. This is because we were gone so much! So for the purpose of seeing New York for the lowest cost and maximize your time, this place is perfect. We noticed that there were a lot of high rises going up and the neighborhood has changed so that it is not scary or high crime location as it may have been in the past. We were not concerned with walking from the train station (or taking the ferry) at night at all. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Basically a parking lot with electric and water hookups. Price reflects weekly rate. Water is shut off during cold months and sole source is spigot at dump station. Limited office hours in winter. Gated security can accommodate off-hours check in. Great location for NYC metro destinations. Stayed here while working nearby. Propane refills at U-Haul a few miles away. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
