3 Parks near Lido Beach, New York
Sep 2015 - $54.00
This is a county run RV park between Long Beach and Point Lookout. It is convient to the Long Island RR to catch the train to Penn Station, the center of New York City. Sites are back-in only with full hookups. There are no amenities, no wi-fi or cable, but your antenna can get local TV. They have a picnic table, no fire pit but you can use your own, wood burning or propane. The sites are spaceous but there is no shade. It boarders sand dunes that provide access to the ocean, about a 1/4 mile or so. - Michael Kibler

We enjoyed our stay there, very good location for doing, Gold coast, Manhattan, Montauk Light, Hamptons, and to go for a nice walk on the beach. I can not imagine being hear during the summer. It has to be chaotic; there are 500 Beach cabanas right next door and lots of beach clubs in the immediate area. - rontrem

The resident camper was amazing and I would give her a 10! It was a really nice campground with large sites, also a 10. However, it was a terribly, long walk to the beach mostly on sand which was a huge challenge with small children, so that's why I only gave it a 6. They send good directions ahead of time. Be sure to follow them because there is a low bridge very close to the campground. Of course, the hassle of getting there from anywhere other than Long Island, makes it a challenge. The gate locks at 9pm, so if you arrive later, you will need to park in the adjacent lot and walk to your site. Because it is a county park, additional cars/visitors are very expensive ($30/day for non-county residents). There is 24-hour security and the 5 mile/hour speed limit is strictly enforced as are quiet hours. Overall, an excellent campground. We would stay here again. - WollyCampers

This park has been upgraded since the last time(15 yrs)I was here. Newer looking shower house,and playground for kids. Sites are level, nice size,mixed open and shady,mostly shaded. No fire rings I would think due to droughty summer,but folks with fire bowl were flame on. I use an LP faux fire for the fun of it,and no smoke. - Kennest

This was a decent campground, with a number of permanent residents with campers that looked quite run down. A few conversations with other campers indicated that satellite reception is only possible with carryout dishes, due to trees close to most of the sites. There are garbage barrels located throughout the park that are emptied every morning. Our site was rather short, and even with our 30' 5er back as far as we could go without leaving the pavement there was no room for our tow vehicle. The cost of camping here is greatly increased for out of towners, as seems to be the case at every county owned park on Long Island. I guess they don't want NYC people to consume all the spaces that the locals taxes pay for.
Overall, this is a good choice for anyone wanting to visit NYC, as the train can take you into Manhattan to Penn Station cheaply. There you can access the subway to anywhere in the city. - Thorfinn

This is a very clean, pretty camp & would be perfect & worthy of a 10 rating if they had wifi, sewer hookups & a laundry. It took us several days & finally moving our motor home forward in our space to be able to get reception on our TV satellite. (I don't think many sites here are located in such a way as to get satellite, because of the trees.) There is a laundromat pretty close & they do have a sewer dump. Not a lot of equipment for children to play on so it was mostly adults - nice and quiet. We would stay here again if for a very short time. (It is owned/managed by the county.) So the price paid for a space is a bit high for what you get. - K Martin

Excellent location with views of downtown Manhattan and Statue of Liberty. Park and waterfront is just a close walk.
We backed in our 42' 5th wheel with extra 11' of trailer and golf cart making 53' unhooked. Sites are tight but the one on our awning side was left empty so we got 2 for the price of one and put the awning out.
Took the golf cart down the waterfront lane and across the footbridge to the park about half a mile away. Amazing views of the Statue and NYC, and mile long board walk.
Park is quiet on week nights and noisy until 2.30am on Friday and Saturday nights due to the clubbing crowd getting the ferry back from the city.
No waste hookups but we used our transfer tank to empty at the dump station. Power and water hookups are good with 30A & 50A.
If you have a camper this is the only game in town. Don't expect reliable Internet as it's patchy. Staff was friendly.
A light breeze most days made it pleasant. We stayed 8 nights.
If you have a dually to tow a 5th wheel beware of the crazy NY drivers who will cut you off as a matter of habit unaware of the size of the rear. Toll fee into Manhattan through the Holland tunnel is $42 for dually'S and $15 for cars.
All in all, we would stay again. Location gets a A, facilities a C and site functionality a D.
Remember though, you would book because of location and convenience, otherwise it's an hour in here. We would stay again if Manhattan is the priority. - Spb

We stayed 4 nights. The camp sites can be tight. We were on C30 (the best site in the park) in a 38' rig. There was construction next door so during the week it was noise yearly. We had electric problems on 50 amp. One leg was dropping voltage, the park said they had a call in on it. - User780

The good: The park has good access to the city via Ferry or subway, space is long and level, hook up's include water, 30/50 electricity.
The Bad: The bathrooms are rundown, hot with no ventilation and moldy shower curtains. You need the bathrooms because you don't have sewer hookups and there is usually a line at the dump station. There's always litter around and I never saw any staff trying to clean up. They have a total Monopoly because of their location, so they just don't care. The owners should be ashamed. - Brian2000
