Overnight stop for me, but most people are here for a few days, perhaps longer. Nice pool, facilities. Staff efficient, helpful. Was easy to find my back-in site without needing an escort. No problem backing, site was level, utilities no problem, very good WiFI & cable. Extensive store: food, RV supplies, etc. Free pancakes in morning.

It is about as close as one can get to NYC. I would stay here again. Tours to NYC are offered, nice touch. Use your GPS to find this KOA: no problem but very helpful.

Cautions: Extra $6/night "resort fee." Not sure what this provides: perhaps the free breakfast and a fire truck circulating around the campgrounds.

Also be aware of strictly enforced two night minimum on Friday - Saturday. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Some sites are satellite accessible. Good electric. Adequate water pressure. Internet speed varied between very good and fair. They charge an extra resort fee per night whether you use the facilities here or not. Fairly convenient to all the sites along the Hudson (West Point, Hyde Park, etc.) as well as to the train to Manhattan. There is lots to see in the area and being a KOA, the park itself tries to be a destination in itself with a pool and lots of activities for kids. They also provide a tour to New York once a week. It gets smoky at night because almost everyone builds a fire, even if its 85 degrees outside. Its about 11 miles from all the interstates. Sites are dirt with dirt roads but are wide. We have stayed here twice and would stay again. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice KOA. In the woods, lots of trees, decent
sized sites, paved roads ! Easy to get in and out. Lots to
do for kids, shuttle to NYC. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Office person, (older lady, onsite manager) was not very helpful. Had to ask about WiFi availability, over-the-air TV stations, site #. Was not escorted to site but should have been. Should have been advised to unhook towed as the roads/sites are not big rig friendly. Had to unhook car after we were halfway in and could not make a turn. Absolutely will not be back or recommend this place period. Worst KOA I've stayed at in a long time. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over a weekend while visiting family in nearby Beacon NY. Didn't use too much of the amenities as family outings took precedence. However, the park seems to be very busy with a lot of activities. And, the staff was always nice and helpful. We will be back in the fall when the leaves are changing and will stay here again.

Stayed for 5 days over the holiday weekend and the park was filled to capacity. The pool was overcrowded and no one was here to enforce the rules, plenty of beer drinking in the pool. One night the campers behind me decided to set off firecrackers. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

See my review from July 2015. We stayed at this campground on the first leg of our trip to New England last year and are here again on the last leg of our trip from the Thousand Islands area. In an ironic twist, we are assigned to the same site we had last year (44, not 45 as shown before). Everything I said last year still holds true, but because some of the maintenance issues have not been addressed my rating this year is lower. The wooden post for water & electric hookups was completely rotted off at ground level, meaning only the water pipe and electrical conduit are supporting the hook-ups. Not good. Sewer did not back up this year. Good. Interior roads are paved but are in fair to poor condition in this section. There is poison ivy in the vegetation between sites (see "Tips")! Rate reflects two in our party, $6/day resort fee, & VKR discount. I would stay here again but not in the same site. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a fair amount of poison ivy in the vegetation around the sites. I know it's impossible to eliminate the ivy, but it would be helpful to those campers who don't know what this plant looks like if it was trimmed back around the perimeter of the site. It was all too easy to brush against moving around the back and/or the streetside of your rig. Wine shop on the premises but the 30 minute trip to the Brotherhood Winery is worth it. Free pancake breakfast every day.

We stay here in a full hook-up site. The sites down below behind the pool are quite bigger than those up on the hill. There's lots for the kids to do, events almost every hour. The staff is great, accommodating and outgoing. They have two pools and a nice playground. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We used this as our base for visiting New York City. It is a 15 minute drive to a train to Grand Central Station and a 70 minute train ride each way. (Not as bad as it sounds to avoid the traffic.) Nice campground with lots of activities for kids. But price is high with a $6.00 "resort fee". We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Other than the price, we were happy with the park. It is kept up very well. We had hoped to take advantage of the NYC Tour they mentioned, but it was not operating the week we were there so we chose not to try to get into NYC. The site was a FHU pull-thru and was mostly level. The utilities worked well. The sites seemed pretty spacious with trees in between. We could not get a satellite signal with all the trees. We stayed here 3 nights. The price is really high for being in the middle of nowhere. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

"Walk Across the Hudson" was a few miles north of the campground. Also the WestPoint tour was good. It is a few miles south of the campground.

I stayed here due to the convenience to travel into NYC. The price is high but what made it high was the resort charge. I was charged $6.00 per person and I am uncertain what I got for this cost.

There is a lot of things for the kids to do but nothing for adults to partake in unless you charge $6.00 a pancake. They do have free pancakes on the weekend mornings. They need to include this cost in the site fee if your going to charge for it anyway.

The park is clean from what I saw. The bathrooms are clean -- the store has everything you could possibly need.

The staff is what makes this campground. Every single employee we came across was really great!

I stayed in site 27 which is a back-in small site. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Make sure to check out New Paltz -- it is a funky town with lots of little shops. Artsy, antiques and many restaurants. Also look for Huguenot Street Historic District in New Paltz; it is the oldest street in America.

Park was not laid out very well and access to the sites in a motorhome was not the best because of untrimmed trees and branches over the access roads. Felt the cost did not reflect the quality of the park. Would only use again if nothing else was available. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Our experience is as an after-hours arrival for a 1-night stay en-route between two stops on a long trip, so we arrived tired and didn't use the campground except as a place to sleep. A typical KOA in the respect of roadway conditions within campground and landscaping (acknowledging we were there before the trees budded). Annoying noise from a motorcyclist racing repeatedly on a nearby road. Other than that above the average for a KOA in terms of space with plenty of separation between sites. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

We should know better as we've stayed here twice before over the past 6 years. Very expensive to us, but to KOA and NY standards. One frustration / surprise with pricing was, on line, their website quoted the site at 52. but when you add the $6 resort fee and tax it climbs to 60. Oh, the resort fee, according the the attendant who checked us in it covers, cable, wifi and trash. (Note, wifi is TengoInternet and you pay extra for it). There were no activities or amenities available in early April so the fee is just another way to make money.
First site we were assigned was a tight corner backing in and sloped so we took another one which was level (they weren't busy so we had our choice of alternate sites). We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Truck Camper.
