This is a great park but it suffers from infrastructure problems. The cable TV is fuzzy largely due to the cable running above ground and around trees throughout the park. The voltage is weak as well. Our average voltage with just one TV on was about 98 volts. They say they are "working on it."

But it is a great park with lots to do and lots of forested sites. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a new grocery store only about three miles to the north. Much more convenient than having to go south to town. Lots to do along the Hudson River. FDR's Hyde Park home and the Vanderbilt Mansion. Don't forget Headless Horseman during Halloween season.

Big rig friendly with level sites. Wi-fi was good. Cable had very limited channels. Dog park was great. Showers were good with hot water. Laundry was good. Campground was good for bike riding. Two Swimming pools were good. Free pancakes for breakfast was a nice treat. The trip from the campground to New York City was good. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Our second trip to New York City should have been about one and half hour trip but our trip was three hours each way because we had to change trains both ways but still a good trip. Less than 30 minutes to Walking Bridge over Hudson River, Eleanor Roosevelt house, Franklin Roosevelt house, Vandenbilt House, Purple Heart Memorial, and Minnewaska State Park Preserve. Walmart was about 15 minute and grocery store was 10 minutes.

One of the better KOA's we've ever stayed at. Our site was gravel, but almost level. Enough space in between sites so you didn't feel like you were on top of each other. Lots are wooded, had a pull through site. Staff friendly. Went on the NYC bus tour-had a wonderful guide and great time-felt safe. Used the mini-golf and basketball areas. Would definitely stay here again. 15 minute or less driving time to nearest train station to go into NYC on our own. Camped here in a Class C with car in tow, had plenty of room for this. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy drive to nearest train station to go into NYC. Just ask staff for directions.

As noted in previous reviews, this campground is a bit of a drive from I-84, however the roads are more than adequate and it is a pleasant drive. This facility is oriented toward families and in spite of heavy usage is acceptably clean and relatively quiet. Management is efficient and clearly visible in day-to-day operations. Campground store is adequate for groceries but souvenir items prevail. Individual sites run the entire spectrum from shadeless, gravel, back-in parking spots to large, shaded pull-throughs with plenty of room between units. All but a few of the sites are reasonably level. Utility hook-ups in our site were in need of repair but useable. There are two main areas for the sites. The loop we were in had a narrow interior road and campers who do not park tow vehicles completely within their site can make navigating tricky. The second main loop is clearly designed for larger units with a wider road and larger sites. WiFi was initially slow to connect, but was satisfactory after that. There was a recurring problem with power outages the afternoon of our second day, but was resolved by evening. Sewer at our site drained very slowly; we had to use the dump station to finish emptying our tanks. Rate reflects two in our party and VKR discount. We would stay here again. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Our third visit here, for an overnight. This facility is quite a way off I-84, but the drive is very manageable, with only the short trek on the road to the campground entrance being rather narrow. A very well run, clean, and attractive campground. It was a weekday in the off-season, so there were no activities scheduled, but there are many things on site to entertain the entire family. Our site was a long, level back-in, that was nicely situated so as to make the neighbors seem far away. W/S/E/C were excellent, as was the WiFi. We will stay here again.

Avoid this park if possible. Cable was non existent as was WiFi as well. The unit next to us was vacant but had the outside speakers blaring for three days. We were advised it would be moved each day but three days later they moved it. Typical close to an attraction park. Shame on KOA for considering this one of there's. Our complaints fell on deaf ears. We were here in two units. We would have been better served in a rest area. This is the first negative review we have issued since we are very tolerant people. The owners could care less for our problems. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

For a KOA, it was nice. Lots to do for the kids but also seemed like a "local" campsite for "locals" hence, loud music at night and groups of people together. The sites were very close and hard to get into them. It is a bit far from any major attractions but being New York City, it was fine. I did not like having to pay a mandatory $5.00 per day activity fee. For what? That should be in the cost, not extra. That was a negative for this campsite. Check-in was very chaotic as too many people checking in = busy campsite. Overall, we would probably stay here again since it was closest to NYC. We did tour Hyde Park and area around the Hudson Valley but like other reviewer said, there are A lot of small, windy country roads to get to the major highways to get anywhere. The closest train station to take into NYC is Beacon and that was still about 15-20 minutes away and you are about 90 minutes by train from New York City. Hope this helps. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The cable and internet were non-existent. We were told the site we had was ok for Satellite, not so we had to move to another site and finally got locked in. Road into campground was a challenge for a big rig. Would not stay there again We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate is with KOA discount and an additional $10 discount using KOA reward points. The rate also include an additional $5.00 "Resort Fee". Without the discounts the rate would have been $59. This is not a good campground for an overnight stay. Not only is it high priced, it is 10 miles away from the Interstate through a small town and along narrow, winding roads. The entrance to the campground was down a hill and over three speed bumps. The campground had lots of shade from the trees, but that also makes it challenging to maneuver through the campground to your site. This was the first KOA we have been to that did not offer a guide to the site. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here several years ago, and decided to return to see if things had changed. Wanted to stay just 1 night, but when I went to book on the internet, was advised they had 2 night minimum for weekends. Phoned their location (not the 800 #) and was able to make my reservation for the 1 night. Took a pull thru w/full hook up. Road ways are narrow but they're one way so there's no worry about trying to pass. Roads are old and starting to show lots of wear and loose gravel (not road pack). Laundry was decent, 5 washers, 6 dryers (4 regular size and 2 super large). $2 wash $.75 for dryers. Dog walk near our campsite but there were no pick up bags. Quick and quiet for the night, but boy is the cost high. If you don't have a KOA membership card, a weekend night is over $65, thus my score. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground and this was our third visit. Only complaint was a charge per pet. And, the WIFI was a bit spotty this time. It should be noted that this park has a lot of family friendly facilities and activities in season. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is a little difficult to get to. It's located between exit 16 and exit 17 off 1-87. However, once you get into the park, you will find it to be very nice. The people at check-in were pleasant and helpful. We stayed in a large pull-through site (#111), which was quiet and had plenty of room on both sides and long enough for our RV and car. Lots of trees and shady. Full hookups including Wi-Fi and cable. We have stayed here before while traveling north or south on the interstate. This is a good overnight stop and would come back again. The price is a little on the high side, but we used our KOA points to off set the price. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Usually stay there 2-3 times a year. On the weekends they have lots of activities for the children. Their staff has always been friendly and the management team are very helpful. Their themed weekends are great and fun filled. 2 years ago we stayed there on their last weekend they were open and a freak snow storm dropped 19" of snow, while most campers left before the storm hit full force we stayed. On their last open day, Sunday, I found out back home we did not have electric. I asked the manager if we could extend our stay 1 more day and was told yes, as they started to close down the campground they would ensure the water and electric to our site was left on. On Tuesday as I prepared to pack up to leave the manager had a plow truck come over and clear a nice path for me to exit the CG to the main road. Great place and even better people to deal with.

Our 4th time staying here. First in a Campers Cabin. Our cabin was well maintained and this campground is what you expect from a KOA. April is a little early in the season to enjoy everything this campground has to offer. Campground store has everything you need.
