We stayed here for 8 nights at 55 bucks a night...spendy for the lack of amenities at this county park. There is no cable tv and no wifi. I was mostly unable to get a Verizon signal. Park staff were not friendly or helpful. Electric is 30 amp only and we flipped the breaker if we used the microwave while using the AC. If you stay here, get familiar with the location of your sites breaker box (our neighbors showed us where it was). On the plus side, sites are very spacious and everyone staying here was friendly. We chose this park so we could visit the city. We walked to the Metro North train station (it is 1.7 miles) and visited NYC for 5 days. If we wanted to visit the city again, we would stay at this park. If not, we would not return. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Green and Grain is a terrific little market; it's next to the Croton Post Office. The laundromat in the Shop Rite center is excellent.

A nice county owned park. Roads are narrow but ok. Back in sites can be challenging.

1/2 of the park is construction workers, but they are very friendly.

Train station 2 miles away. The train goes right into city. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent location for train to New York City. Croton station it's just outside the park entrance. I would recommend walking, biking or taxi to the station as the parking is $10 per day and you have to renew at midnight or face a ticket. For only daily parking it works very well. The park is delightful but expensive as is everything in the NYC area. Swimming beaches, fishing or just watching the Hudson. We wished we had reserved for longer and would stay again. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is primarily a long-term or full-timer's park. There are few staying here overnight or on vacation. There is no presence by park personnel in the RV area; it is far from the park office. The sites are fine, nicely wooded, with good room between. SAT reception is a no-go unless you have a portable unit. Water pipe is insulated.

I felt like I was a stranger in someone's neighborhood the whole time I was here, for five days. $50 is pretty steep for zero amenities.

I stayed here mainly because of its close proximity to the commuter rail station, which is too far to walk to. It's definitely a drive or bicycle ride. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
