4 Parks near Croton on Hudson, New York

Let me start by saying that the reservation-making process was very frustrating.....it took numerous calls to actually "make" a reservation, and I never could get an email confirmation (although they claimed to have sent me one). The day of arrival came, and we found that there is no place to pull your rig over by the office to check in. (We have a 40 foot MH and toad.....we were told just to "park anywhere".) We were assigned a site, and off we went , only to find that our assigned site was occupied. Another camper nearby said the same thing happened to them, so he just took another available site. Ater much wrangling, we were able to find a site. That being said, the campground itself is very nice. The sites are among trees,and are not too cramped. It is a very pretty escape for people from NYC on the weekends, and they came in droves to the beach area. There are RV sites, cabins and tent sites. We would probably NOT return here, not due to the hassles, but more that it is a longer drive than we liked to visit family and friends upstate. - henny38

Sites are on grass with gravel. FHU, 30 amp, back in & shaded. No cable but TV on antenna & we got satellite. Picnic Table. Pool closed. Beach swimming. No WiFi. Permanent sites & day workers. But for the most part neat. Good Verizon signal. No dog run but plenty of places to walk. Playground. - jcpjane

This is a great place to stay in an RV to visit NYC. The campground is quiet and clean. We did not swim, but it said you can only swim while lifeguards are on duty and we never saw them on duty.
The only draw back is the walk to the train station. It is a 1 1/2 mile walk mainly through the park to the train station which doesn't seem too bad except it was July and very hot and humid. Especially after walking in NYC all day it was a hard walk home. If we go back I would probably call a cab to take us from the station to the campground.
When you ride the train into NYC it is about 45 min and takes you into Grand Central Station. It is a great alternative to driving!
The campground has full hookups, but no wifi or cable. Not an issue when you're gone all day. We did get many channels over the air using our antenna. Overall a great, quiet place to stay while visiting NYC. - Amanda C

Stayed at this campground for 2 days while visiting friends and touring West Point. Campground is very nice. Pretty quiet, except when large groups having gatherings. However, the gatherings didn't bother us as they were over in the early evening. You can also hear firing ranges in the distance up until about 10 pm. However, having served in the Army for over 26 years, we were use to hearing firing on nearby ranges and it didn't bother us.\ at all. We had sort of missed the noise from the past. The camp staff were very friendly and helpful. Our site (C-9) was close to others but not a problem. The restroom was close to us which we did use. It was very clean. We would stay here during another visit to this area. We camped in a class C motorhome. - Tiger6

This is a very family oriented park. Lots for families to do. Feels like you are in the woods with nearby neighbors. No sewer, but dump close by. Friendly staff. Roped off swimming area. - DigMyPast

We stayed here for a weekend in July so we could tour West Point. The positives about the campground are that it's a very pretty facility that surrounds a large pond. The bathrooms were fairly modern and clean, the staff was friendly, and the sites were roomy. It was just a few minutes from West Point so it was perfect for our purposes. Unfortunately, as much as we liked the positives, the negatives were also substantial. First off, the campground is right next to several artillery ranges. We heard gunfire and heavy artillery almost non-stop from 7 AM until late in the evening (at least 10:30 some nights). Although we thought it was rather funny and part of the ambiance, if you have kids that are light sleepers or dogs afraid of fireworks or thunder, rethink coming here. Also, we were at a site at the back side of the pond which was very tight to park in. We had to make a 90 degree turn into a driveway with a fence on each side, and a sheer drop down the side of a hill on the other side of the road. Also, the bathrooms were a very long walk down a narrow road for the few sites that were past it. The dump station was near the bathrooms and the road around the campground is one-way, so if you are in the sites past it, you need to actually leave the campground and come back in to use the dump station on the way out (and back in to it!). Next, we thought we'd be fine using our own facilities for the weekend since the web site states that they have honey wagon service for $5. When we showed up, however, we were told that it was actually $8, and only offered on Fridays and Mondays. Doesn't do weekenders a lot of good. Lastly, as others have mentioned, the road into the campground is very steep and very winding. - GoldenGirl

State park created through donation in 1929. Facilities built by CCC's during the 1930's. Not much in the way of development or maintenance has been done since then. Restrooms are rustic though they do have flush toilets and showers without need of quarters. Most of sites for tents with poor access and tent pad area. Road through park is tight and full of potholes and broken pavement. One of worst state parks, more like unmaintained county park. Has access to beach area across highway. Lots of hiking paths and fishing with several near-by lakes. Designated trailer sites have no hook-ups and were literally sites in a field. No potable water at CG. - Al Z
