Nice park. Beware of the road off 293 that goes up to the actual park. I'm from the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina and a windy road to me is different than a windy road to most other people. This road is windy in anybody's book. It climbs at a pretty steep grade and has some tight turns. Now, this isn't meant to scare anyone off because it is absolutely doable. You just need to be aware of it and stay in a low gear. We are a 40' fiver with a beast of a dually truck so about 60' total and we didn't have a problem.
Now, about the park. It is laid out around a pond. It is pretty and laid out in such a way that there is plenty of elbow room for each RV. No crowding. It is quiet and some shady sites and some open spots. I have almost no problem with park at all except 2 things: lack of sewer hook up. (I'm spoiled and like my full hookup). There is a honey wagon that comes around each day and for $8 he will pump you out. Water & electric were fine. And we had almost no cell signal for hotspot, but we could make phone calls - go figure. We wouldn't hesitate to go back. - jomark

This is not a great military campground in our opinion. It is located off base and up a steep hill with switchbacks and speed bumps. There were big rigs down in the full hook up flat part of the campground but they still had to deal with the narrow road and steep curves. Verizon cell and hot spot did not work well. Bathrooms are a long way from the tent pop up site. Laundry machines were $1.75 to wash and $1.00 to dry. There were only 2 machines each and one washer did not work but was not marked as broken. Parties are held in the campground and people were everywhere blocking road access. We did have a nice view of the lake. The campground does not sell ice because their ice machine was broken and so was the change machine in the laundry. The water lines to our site ran along the top of the ground. The Commisarry and Exchange were easy to find. We would not stay here again. - roadking

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

Great location if you are wanting to visit nyc or the Hudson valley. The park is located right on the croton Harmon train line, which is very regularly serviced by both express & all stops trains. We found getting a long term reservation a bit tricky, and so just booked for two weeks at a time. On that note some staff are very helpful, others not so. The entry to the park can get a little busy on weekends or other holiday times. Lots of open space, waterfront and places to walk. It did used to be a tip though, so the grassy mounds aren't hills. Seemed to be about half the park either perm or seasonal residents. They do need to get the bin for trash and recycling emptied a little more frequently as was often overflowing. The power was only 30amp, otherwise the utilities were very reliable. AT&T plus Verizon both worked well. On Site 13 the rear faces the restrooms, and people often cut through your site which we find a bit rude. Can be a bit sloppy going on the dirt roads in the campsite ring road when it rains. - leemhicks

1.5 miles to the train station to NYC. An hour north of NYC. Camp ground has more 'full timers' than transient; people say they are workers on the new Tarrytown Bridge. Nice grounds but the roads in the RV campground lack maintenance. - 5outta6

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. - Arizona Nancy

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

We stayed there for 4 days on our way to NYC. We stayed on the bottom hill and based on other reviews that was the better loop. The staff was super friendly. The site was mostly level except at the ends and since we are about 65' and in a 60' spot it wasn't the best. We have a motorcycle and you can't have motorcycles on the upper hill, where the spaces are 90'. They have a heated swimming pool which was still a little bit cold for us. There is not much to do in the park. The surrounding areas are very nice. Just a note, when you're going through town you might get a warning on your GPS for overweight vehicles. ignore it, I checked with the campground and that's what they said. There is no sign that warns about it. - sflabrkr

Beautiful, quiet park a little off the beaten path, but fairly close to transportation to NYC. The staff was pleasant and helpful. They had information on the various modes of transportation. The bus stop in Warwick was about 20 minutes away, had free parking and took about 2 hours into the Port Authority. The train station in Peekskill was closer, didn't have free parking, and went into Grand Central Station. There are over 150 sites spread over a large area you can see your neighbor, but they are not that close. Our site had a table and fire pit. We had a back-in site that provided plenty of shade. The pull-thru sites were in full sun. There are daily activities and miniature golf, basketball, shuffle board. An added bonus one evening when returning to our site we saw a doe and her two fawns in the meadow. The doe ran off right away but the fawns were very curious and didn't run away until the engine of our hybrid car switched on. Laundry was $2.50 and dryer was $2.00. - SoonerMom

Beautiful campground with plenty of nature. We saw deer numerous times and a family of turkeys. Plenty to do for the little ones. Every worker we saw was very friendly. We hope to be back. - Upsdrew

Very nice campground. We camp here 4-5 times a year. Price can't be beat. Showers and bathrooms leave a bit to be desired but the price is right so you can't complain. Staff is good and the grounds are beautiful. The lake is great, hiking trails are great and overall experience is awesome. Excellent bang for your buck. - Garymac28

We stayed 5 nights at this campground and the bathrooms were never cleaned once. There was fecal matter on the floor that was there all 5 days. The showers were filthy. The campsites were nice, but we were very disappointed with the condition of the bathrooms and showers. - Stolz

The extra fee for out of county residents is a bit much. The electricity kept fluttering and was not dependable to leave on during the night. Maps and any information were not available. We looked into the bath houses and it wasn't a hard decision NOT to use them. They are filthy and smell. We will drive on rather than stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

Water pressure fluctuated between 40 psi and 52 psi. Power stable Leg 1 120v, Leg 2 121v. Promised a site that would be able to get satellite. Not true. I have Dish Network that uses the western arc satellites 110, 119 and 129. Impossible to get those satellites. Using the eastern arc, 61.5, 72.5 and 77 I was only able to get satellite 77. No HD channels on that satellite. Very limited Dish reception. Site was level with decent spacing between sites. Since we were in the 'Satellite reception area' there were very few RVs next to us. Campground WiFi is free. WiFi usage is throttled. The more data you use, the less your download speed. Once you reach 1G of data usage in a 12 hour prior your download speed is limited to 1 Mbps. WiFi worked for the first two days of our stay. It never worked again. Talked to office about the WiFi and was told they were 'working on it'. During our stay it was quiet with no campground traffic around us. Good road to the campground with gravel roads leading to our site. Our site was in a large open gravel area. Very expensive to park in a gravel parking lot and very dusty. Sewer connection over one foot above ground. We booked the New York City bus tour through the KOA office. We told the office personnel four different times we were traveling with a handicapped senior. When the bus arrived for the tour it did not have handicapped access. The bus driver did not know there was a handicapped senior on the tour. Our handicapped friend had to use the bus stairs for the tour. Very difficult for someone recuperating from a recent broke arm and recent hip replacement. We also paid to have our dog walked twice during our tour. The dog walker only walked our dog once. I have a video surveillance camera in our motor home to prove it. Very upset since our tour lasted over 13 hours! $73 a night is too expensive to park in a gravel parking lot, not have a handicapped equipped bus and not have our dog walked as promised. - Rufas

Although a distance from NYC, it's easy to get into the city either by car or on the train - we did both. The week we were there, the bridge over the thruway was under repair requiring an inconvenient detour. We selected out site for satellite reception. It was located at the end of a row and was very private and spacious. The downside was extremely low water pressure. This is, in my opinion, one of the better KOA properties in the system. - Rd yacht

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed the park. It was clean, the sites were wide, and we had some shade. The park was quiet even though it was very full with families with children and dogs. The campers followed the rules about quiet time and the care of their dogs. We thoroughly enjoyed this park. The free pancakes every day for truly a plus as were the staff. - Marilynintexas

This older park is located on a small lake and is pleasantly landscaped. Staff was helpful and pleasant to work with. It was early in the season so the beach was not yet open. There are boat docks. Our grandchildren enjoyed the playground. The roads are paved and nice for walking. We stayed here to have a location close to Poughkeepsie and to a Metro station. Most of the lots seemed to be seasonal. - Bonnie Lee

This campground is on a beautiful lake, but it's too far from the highway for a one night stay. I'd recommend it for a longer stay, however, because it's a lovely, peaceful spot! We had a roomy, level, gravel back-in site site with shade. The wifi worked well; no cable. - Lyn T

We got the impression this park was mostly for seasonals and long term residents. As you enter the campground, you can see a number of campers that basically look like trailer homes and there was various debris stored here and there. None of it was terrible, but it was noticeably different than the other RV parks we've stayed in.
While the campground is located on a lake, and the loop we were in was ok, it definitely did not seem like a destination campground. When we first arrived and walked into the little campground office, I said hello and the guy just stared at me. I actually wondered if we'd walked into the wrong office or something. I said we were checking in and he just responded: "Last name?" Not exactly warm and fuzzy. He handed me a couple pages of rules to sign off on and then directed us to our site.
Our loop was a large grass field with RVs parked along the perimeter. The sites are large and level and there was good site separation. There were no trees or bushes between the sites. The hookups seemed ok, but we lost power twice. Once was during a thunderstorm, so no surprise there. But the other was just random with no obvious reason.
The lake has an area buoyed off for swimming and the green spaces are well kept and pretty, but the buildings look pretty run down. We tried walking around the perimeter of the lake, but ran into some lovely signs from some crazy neighbors threatening to shoot us if we trespassed. It might have been nice if the campground management mentioned the fact that some lunatic gun nut lived nearby and threatens to shoot their patrons....
In any case, other than the FDR historical sites in Hyde Park, there's not a whole lot to do in this area. It was just a transit stop for us and that's all I would recommend it for. If it was $30 or $35 per night, I might feel differently. But for $50 per night, I expect a bit more than unfriendly welcomes and death threats from the neighbors. - LGRV
