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

We stayed 3 days in site 114 and it was perfect. Very level and across from the bathroom. Site was so shady you really didn't need your awning. In the mornings water pressure was bad but as the day progressed it went back to normal. WiFi was marginal and TV was fine. I was able to watch and enjoy the Olympics.

Campground is definitely geared towards the children. Lots for them to do and you could hear them the entire time :) Way too many dogs barking, though. A big deal is made about dogs barking but management does nothing to uphold their rules about it.

All of the amenities were good and the pool was refreshing. Store was good and well stock.

Yes camping fee is pricey but we all continue to pay it myself included.

We were in town for a family reunion and will definitely stay here again next year. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We were assigned an end, gravel, 50 amp, FHU pull-thru site (#60) with lots of foliage and trees. When we pulled up to our site, we were impressed until we tried to level. What normally takes 5 minutes took us over an hour to level as the site was sloped. Once we got through that, it was a great site. No neighbors on one side, a woods view out the front, and plenty of space. Other sites appeared to be more level, so they all weren't bad. The WiFi was excellent. The cable had a limited # of channels. Friendly, efficient check-in. Good Verizon cell service. Easy drive in and out of our site. Typical KOA with lots for kids/families to do. We would stay here again, but not on site #60. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight stop for us on the way home and we found the site to be easy to access with good hookups. There were plenty of things for children to keep busy. The bathroom that I did go into was old and not as clean as I would have wanted if I had to use their facilities. The staff was very helpful with directions. I would stay here again because of convenience but that is based on the fact that there are not many choices of campgounds beteween Delaware and Massachusetts on the way North or South on main highways. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a Deluxe 50 Amp site for our 30 Amp camper. We had power issues: the breaker at our site was bad. It was hot, (89 deg F +), and we ran our A/C. A breaker in my RV tripped because of the low voltage and high amperage provided by the service box. They came out the next morning and replaced the breaker. It worked fine the rest of the stay. I thought it still may have been a problem with the camper, but we had no issues with the other two campgrounds we visited on the Eastern Seaboard that week.

We paid for a premium site, and expected everything to work, but there was no cable TV, and they would not give us a credit for not being able to provide cable. (sad face).

There was a LOT of poison ivy all over and the dogs transferred it to us.

We have been coming here for years, but will no longer even think of it. It's too expensive for what you get. We had to pay for services that we didn't get, and the grounds have steadily declined.

Wineries are nearby, but if you want something to do at the campground as an adult, go somewhere else.

Also: had to pay for pets, and a "resort fee"??? What is a Resort Fee?

Charged us for a Pull Through, when we had a Back-In. They refused to adjust that too!!! Never again... We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Travel Trailer.

If you are passing through, or using it as a night stay for NYC activities, it may suit you fine. Poison Ivy all around the campground!!! Ask if they've eradicated it before making a reservation here, unless you are immune to it!

Since I like Satellite TV and don't really like being in the trees, I opt for one of the 3 back in overflow sites across from the office. I have found the sites down below to be tight and not worth the trouble to get in and out. The overflow sites are fairly level and are usually easy in and out. Perfect for one night. The night we were here, they were having a wine tasting which was nice. Tons of stuff for children. 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.
