2 Parks near Lido Beach, New York
Jul 2015 - $53.00
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

This is a shocking oasis in a busy part of Long Island. Sites are very wide/spread out, almost level(ish), and rest room/showers are passable. For a county park we were very happily surprised and pleased to have stayed here. Many families appear to stay here quite a while and make the most if it with outdoor furniture, hanging plants and great little patios on their campers. Quiet and relaxed. Nice stop on a long trip. Glad we chose Battle Row. - Texas Fleetwood

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

This campground is a big parking lot with just water and electricity. The restrooms were old and the shower curtains were very moldy. It is however convinient to get to NYC. The subway is .7 miles from the campground. The washer is $3 a load and the dryer is $2.50. - SoniaR

The park is in a great location to visit NYC. An easy water taxi or other public transportation gets you across the river in no time. It's just a blacktop parking lot, with no bells and whistles. I would have given it higher ratings, but the office personnel are NO HELP whatsoever! I called to get some last minute directions, and I got, "Well how would I know?" Luckily, GPS got us here without their help. The on-site security is excellent and very helpful. Showers are good; wifi is not, but we have our own. - stlmp
