A hidden gem of a campground, right next to the MetroNorth train
line into New York City. Spacious sites, gravel and grass, lots of
trees, and paved roads
Only 30 AMP electric in all sites. Right on the Hudson River,
beach and picnic grounds nearby to the campground. The park is
City Owned, well run and well maintained. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

We were here for 17 days both visiting New York and Hyde Park and West Point. This is a marvelous center for traveling to all three of these. The level, treed sites are rock, have a picnic table, spaced out, have good hook-ups with 30 A and are just delightful. There is no wi-fi and no cable but we had some over the air stations.

Getting to New York took about 45 minutes by train and costs $5.00 on weekends and $9.00 on weekdays and between $30 and $40 depending upon your age. The station is about 1 1/2 miles from the park and there is ample parking (you might have to use the north side of the street.)

There are nice trail through the park. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walk the trail around to the marina to Croton Landing. The gates that you see by Half-Moon development look like but are open.

We enjoyed our brief stay at Croton Point Park, though it was a challenge to drive a 33' motorhome through Tarrytown and Sleep Hollow to get to the park. There are many seasonal campers set up with large propane tanks, decks, and other items that detract from the campground but we would still return. Croton Point was a convenient location for us to visit family in Brooklyn but is not convenient for an overnight stay if traveling the Interstate highways. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful county park in a beautiful setting. We had a campsite with full hookups. The campground is heavily wooded estate on the Hudson River. We hiked, had a campfire, went to New York City, the Bronx Zoo, and visited family. Park officials were very friendly and helpful. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

A real gem in the middle of a metropolitan area. County run park that is within 30 minutes of West Point, right on the Hudson River. Nice shady sites that are fairly level. Be sure you avoid going on Bear Mountain Rd to get there as it is not really suitable for large rigs. Full hook ups, but no cable TV or WiFi. Lots of OTA TV stations however. Showers are clean but have a lot of mildew on the tiles that could be cleaned with a little bit of bleach. Very near a large train station where you can catch a train to Manhattan. Grocery store within 2 miles. Very pricey for what you get, but you are close to the metro area. We would stay here again. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice campground with much potential. Great location, easy access to NYC. Utilities are dated. Lots of long term campers, which is unusual for a county park. Very high water pressure; regulator required. Will definitely stay again, great rates. Friendly staff, regular police patrols, which was nice. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

Decent RV campground. Full hookups. Close to the NYC Metro North train station so easy access to the city if you need that. Paved roads, grassy level sites, gravel pads, shade trees. Pad sizes vary, but the office knows what size rigs fit where. Can be hard to make a reservation - you have to call during business hours and they don't always answer the phone during business hours. I would stay here again if I had to be in the area for some reason. I prefer more rural campgrounds. Considering that this campground is in the NYC metro area, it is really quite nice. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a really nice place to spend a couple of days. The area is gorgeous, and right on the Hudson River. The sites are wide enough, with grass and trees, and well-maintained. No Wi-Fi. Bathrooms were clean. My only complaint was that the lodge was right across from our site, and there was a large party with loud music. They did stop playing at 10 PM, but the ambience of being on the river was disturbed. We didn't take advantage of the train into NY City, but the station was very close and we were told it was a 45 minute ride to Manhattan. We would stay here again. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a county park (not state, as other review indicated). Attendants were very friendly and helpful; reservation must be by phone or in person. Main difficulty in getting here is US-9 -- 8 miles of transit from I-87, through several towns with narrow, double lanes and 30mph speed control. The MNR station is two miles from campsites, so noise is minimal; this is a great location for NYC access -- takes 50-60 mins (depending on which train you get). Full hook-ups are $50 per day; $240 for a week-long stay (5-7 days is same cost), makes it $35/day --- nice option. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is a real find. Close to New York City with convenient, frequent service by rail just a mile away. This is a large, lovely family park with playgrounds, ball fields, beachfront on the Hudson, peace and quiet. The grand kids loved playing outside on the green lawns and running to the close by playground. The sites are large. If you stay a week or more the price is very reasonable for a park this close to NYC. I searched for a long time before this park popped up on the radar. New York's best kept secret. Just don't expect fancy amenities. No Wi-Fi (We have our own Verizon air card). No cable (We have satellite). But there is water, electric, and sewer. The place is clean and basically well maintained. They are short on staff due to county budget restrictions. Low bridges on 9A. Just avoid that road and use 9. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week. The property this park has is very very nice, but it is in need of maintenance, possibly due to financial issues of the county? The staff of four people in the front office that greeted us on arrival, were more interested in their conversation than servicing us. The outlet at our electric hookup was upside down, so we couldn't use our surge protector. The trash dumpster was convenient but very messy, again, the staff needs to clean up after it, also get a replacement dumpster that isn't falling apart. The location to the train station for getting into NYC is very good, about a mile away. The sites are well spaced. There are great hiking trails and bike trails in the area. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park location, difficult access for large RVs due to bridge height restrictions on access roads and turnpikes. You must take RT 9 thru narrow city roads. Restrooms were disgusting because they haven't been cleaned in months. Many carnival workers staying there and seasonal workers weed whacking all day spraying my rig with rocks. One TV station so bring a dish. No WiFi. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

For a state park, this was a nice place. The sites were huge and well cared for. There is no Wi-Fi and some minor train noise (from the nearby depot), but overall, the park is dark and quiet at night. It's a rare treat (for us) to have water at a State Park, much less sewers, so we were happy. The park gets busy in the weekends, but it seems tent campers are kept far away from RV sites so the party noise was minimal. VERY, VERY convenient access to the Train to NYC or Poughkeepsie. A nice grocery store, a hardware store, laundromat (important on long trips), gas stations, a Diner and an Italian Deli are right outside the gates, so that's very convenient. As mentioned in an earlier review, the roads outside the park are VERY hilly with VERY tight turns; pulling our 27' travel trailer made for some white-knuckle driving, but we did fine arriving and leaving. If we find ourselves going in NYC anytime again, we will definitely stay here again. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our rate based on a weekly rate. What a beautiful place to set up. Lots of shady level sites, the train into the City outside the gate and its a 45 minute ride into Grand Central. The park sits on hundreds of acres on the Hudson River with a short walk to the river or a sandy beach. Not sure why previous poster had problems with TV stations. We had major networks plus with just our RV antenna. We will go back. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.
