Excellent location with views of downtown Manhattan and Statue of Liberty. Park and waterfront is just a close walk.

We backed in our 42' 5th wheel with extra 11' of trailer and golf cart making 53' unhooked. Sites are tight but the one on our awning side was left empty so we got 2 for the price of one and put the awning out.

Took the golf cart down the waterfront lane and across the footbridge to the park about half a mile away. Amazing views of the Statue and NYC, and mile long board walk.

Park is quiet on week nights and noisy until 2.30am on Friday and Saturday nights due to the clubbing crowd getting the ferry back from the city.

No waste hookups but we used our transfer tank to empty at the dump station. Power and water hookups are good with 30A & 50A.

If you have a camper this is the only game in town. Don't expect reliable Internet as it's patchy. Staff was friendly.

A light breeze most days made it pleasant. We stayed 8 nights.

If you have a dually to tow a 5th wheel beware of the crazy NY drivers who will cut you off as a matter of habit unaware of the size of the rear. Toll fee into Manhattan through the Holland tunnel is $42 for dually'S and $15 for cars.

All in all, we would stay again. Location gets a A, facilities a C and site functionality a D.

Remember though, you would book because of location and convenience, otherwise it's an hour in here. We would stay again if Manhattan is the priority. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is basically a paved parking lot on one of what must be the most valuable pieces of property in Jersey City. It is very convenient to ferry and train. The ferry is just a hundred yards across the parking lot. The toilet, showers and laundry were in great clean condition. There is a dump on site, not at each site. Each site is a back in about 20' wide. There is not room to put out an awning. Slides will come close to neighbor's slides. We were there for three nights and felt very safe there and left our unit without worry each day. It was also very easy to get to from I-78. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is in a great location to visit NYC. An easy water taxi or other public transportation gets you across the river in no time. It's just a blacktop parking lot, with no bells and whistles. I would have given it higher ratings, but the office personnel are NO HELP whatsoever! I called to get some last minute directions, and I got, "Well how would I know?" Luckily, GPS got us here without their help. The on-site security is excellent and very helpful. Showers are good; wifi is not, but we have our own. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is a big parking lot with just water and electricity. The restrooms were old and the shower curtains were very moldy. It is however convinient to get to NYC. The subway is .7 miles from the campground. The washer is $3 a load and the dryer is $2.50. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

The good: The park has good access to the city via Ferry or subway, space is long and level, hook up's include water, 30/50 electricity.

The Bad: The bathrooms are rundown, hot with no ventilation and moldy shower curtains. You need the bathrooms because you don't have sewer hookups and there is usually a line at the dump station. There's always litter around and I never saw any staff trying to clean up. They have a total Monopoly because of their location, so they just don't care. The owners should be ashamed. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 4 nights. The camp sites can be tight. We were on C30 (the best site in the park) in a 38' rig. There was construction next door so during the week it was noise yearly. We had electric problems on 50 amp. One leg was dropping voltage, the park said they had a call in on it. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Well, what can you say about an asphalt parking lot? They have water and electric (50 & 30) with a community dump station. Unfortunately, construction is underway nearby...one morning they fired up at 6AM....but what'cha gonna do?...they got the only game in town! If you want near Manhattan...this is the place. Expensive, tight, profunctory service, but the PATH train is a few blocks away...a great pharmacy is right around the corner, Liberty Park is right across the marina....it's got what you want when you're camping in "New York City"! Have no doubt we'll be back! We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a no frills RV park. The sites are snug and are gravel. We paid $90 for our first night (a Thursday) then $105 per night for Fri, Sat & Sun. The showers are nothing spectacular but the water pressure and temp make up for it. The WiFi is OK at times...not the fastest but it works. The location of this park is FANTASTIC!!!!! It is a short 12 minute flat walk to the Warren Street Wharf where you catch the ferry over to Financial District in New York City or over to Liberty Landing. The cost to New York is $7.00 each way or you can buy a book of 10 for $55.00. The park is very quiet on the weekend but can get noisy during the week due to construction work around the marina. The sites only have water & elect. There is one dump station near the restrooms. I didn't use the laundry as I thought it was too expensive but it looks modern and clean. The staff helpful and friendly. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

It is plain. Paved roads. Gravel and pavement sites. Some picnic benches. Park is bordered by harbor on two sides, dry dock on one side, and a new building going up on the fourth side. No construction noise from the building. Ferry to NY is steps away. Most staying here were in the city all day and only slept at the park. This is a NO frills park. But, if you want to visit NY you won't do it any cheaper than this park. It serves its purpose well. It was pretty full despite its parking lot status. No sewer, but a dump station, or someone will empty for you, not sure if there was a charge. I would suggest parking in the middle if you have a choice. I chose my site near the dry dock, but there we did have cars and tractors coming and going into dry dock many times. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

I find it really hard to wire a review for this campground. Specifically speaking, without acknowledging the proximity to NYC and the access from the local ferry to NYC... solely judging the RV park on it's own... I'd say simply the place is an overpriced dump. Yet, the main reason people use this RV park is for the adventure which is NYC, Ellis Island and The Statute of Liberty. All are within non driving access from your camper. Liberty State Park is adjacent to the RV park and is the location and access point to the ferries which will take you to Ellis Island and The Statute Of Liberty. To head to NYC just step aboard the Ferry which runs every 40 minutes or tae the subway. There is a ferry a block away which travels to the financial district and the other which runs to the WTC area. My biggest gripe with the park is it could be something special. I'll accept it's in a working boat yard and that it's "crowded and gritty" what I don't accept is that the park isn't kept well all the while they charged $90.00 per night. They could do a better job cleaning it up and making it presentable. if they made an effort I'd accept the price for the experience but as it stands I felt ripped off. Otherwise the general area is undergoing a lot of urban renewal and it's really nice to see this taking place... hopefully they'll invest in the park for it's in a avery special location and could be something really amazing. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Statute of Liberty and Ellis Island ferry from Liberty State Park. (Walk or ride your bike /ask for directions and be "prepared" some areas you'll be passing through if you walk or ride your bike to the park are downright gritty). NYC; take the ferry located in the RV Park or another a block away. Subway also runs from very close. Ferry accept bikes... we took the ferry and rode our bikes along the hudson in a park running for several miles. We then "hiked" the High Line

Noisy, no amenities as stated in ad. Girls in office were very nice. No restaurant on property, no grass for pets at all. No sewer on site. Had to use honey truck or breakdown camp to go to the dump site! No site trash pickup. A Walmart parking lot would be a 10 star upgrade. Walk to ferry or train way too far for a senior. The price is the same as Walt Disney and there is no comparison. Park at a good campground and take another form of transportation and stay in NY Hotel. Or fly in. So ripped off. Also, no view of anything but boatyard and construction site, and a boat mover (LARGE) back and forth through lot all day long. Ended up using Uber to get to city. Lot spacing was very close with sunny/open exposure. Site surface was asphalt and gravel. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not a thing to do, scary area to be out at night! They are taking advantage of the fact that they are the only RV park near the city, which would be great if they had a nice park. We literally could shake hands with our neighbors through our windows.

Location, Location, Location! You are a 5 minute walk away from the subway and one subway stop away from the Freedom Tower, 911 memorial Museum, and One World Trade Center. The Park's urban location rather than its' amenities (or lack there of) is why I rated it an 8. If its' location wasn't so great, this parking lot would be rated poor. By fluke, we arrived on 9/11 and were able to get an excellent view and photos of the spot lights representing the twin towers. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Unfortunately this is the only place to stay if you want to have quick and easy access to NYC. But, it is very basic. It's a parking lot with small back in spaces where everyone is put at angles to get the most RV's into as small a space as possible. We were lucky to have a spot where we could see the Statue Of Liberty from our RV as finding anything else worth looking at in this park is difficult due to how basic it is. The washrooms and showers were very old and dirty. The girls in the office were very helpful. The internet worked great after I figured out that we were given a bad internet code, and got another one to use. The park charged us $85 for the first 3 nights and then on the last, because it was a preliminary night to a holiday, they charged us $99 for that night. We got everything we wanted to do in NYC quickly so we could get out of the RV park. We left the RV park early as it was just too depressing and ugly. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

If this park were anywhere else, I'd advise to stay elsewhere. It's basically a parking lot, with RVs packed in tightly. But the location! Walk 10 minutes to a New Jersey PATH station for a quick subway ride (about $2.50 each way) into Penn Station or the World Trade Center in Manhattan. Or walk three minutes from your site to take the passenger ferry ($7 each way). No other RV park offers such easy, quick access to Manhattan. The park and its adjoining marina is in a safe neighborhood and there's 24 hour security. Depending where your site is located, you may see the Statue of Liberty or the Freedom Tower. The WiFi worked well at all hours. The park is at the end of a dead end street so there is no traffic noise at night (it's actually very quiet). If you are visiting NYC, then paying $80 a night to stay here is a bargain. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

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!
