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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We totally enjoyed our stay at Croton Pond. Beautiful views of the Hudson River, great places to walk and lots to do. The hookups were good and our campsite - number 15 - was the most level site we have ever been situated on. So setting up was a breeze. The sites are grassy and a good size. The picnic table provided was brand new. The bathhouse was immaculate with new shower curtains. You could tell they were getting ready for the season. Not having a satellite, we were surprised that we could not get a single TV channel. Hope our reviews are helpful to others. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

We attended a rally here. Cost per night was due to us staying at the rally rate. Stayed here 8 nights. Sites short but a few will hold 45 foot coaches with some maneuvering. Only problem was exit gate. Up/down arm was hit by someone. Be careful when you exit with your RV. Area quiet. Bugs a pest a dusk. Great base to visit NY city and surrounding area. West Point tour a must. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.

The best thing about this park is the location. A short bike ride or drive to the Croton on Hudson train station is all it takes to put you on a train that goes right to Grand Central Station in 30 minutes. It's also about 2/3 the price of the Jersey City park. It's a beautiful peninsula that juts out into the Hudson River with a nice beach, trails and partially wooded sites. We had a full hookup site that was level on grass. We were able to get satellite TV from our site with a little positioning. The park staff are not at all friendly or welcoming, and on more than one occasion the bathrooms looked as if they hadn't been cleaned in days. The showers are hideous with filthy walls and cobwebs and one of three stalls had a ripped shower curtain basically nonfunctional. One weekend there was no hot water and I had to inform the staff myself as nobody had otherwise known. Despite those problems we would stay here again just for the proximity to NYC. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, just not accessible for large motorcoaches. The tree limbs and branches make it more than a challenge to get into and out of the park or RV section. The folks who run the place are very friendly and accommodating, but they just will not trim trees for folks to get through. I had to cut limbs for about an hour to get into the space where we were assigned. Even the road coming in and out I had to drive off the roadway on the grass to clear limbs to avoid doing damage. I called ahead to check on tree clearance, but it didn't help. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.
