5 Parks near Riverhead, New York
Sep 2016 - $40.00
this park is maintained by the county. They do an excellent job. The people are very helpful & courteous. They even p/u your garbage daily, as a free service. The sites are sand but level, not too close. Water pressure good. When booking your stay, there is a policy about when it can be done. Suggest calling the Co. parks office & get info. Also bring your dogs vaccination info, they will ask to see a copy. - vince/chestertown

Pleasantly surprised ! I am here now first week of Aug and I would say the electric sites are about 60% filled. I am on the best pull-through #91...Super large site...Walking distance to bathroom and showers. Nice beach area, great kayaking..nearby eateries and of course the multiple vineyards and farm stands. For the non electric sites one would need to bring portable fire container. - keys4mo

We liked this park a lot, although it's different than most we stay in. The sites are spaced well apart but there are no bushes or trees to screen the sites from each other, and the park is pretty much all sand with a bit of grass here and there. This is to be expected though because this is Long Island which is all sand. The park was quite most of the weekend, but our neighbors said it can get pretty noisy during the summer months. The bathrooms are old but well maintained, and the dump station is well laid out. There's just no way to hook up a water hose for wash down. Someone said it was due to budget cuts? We'd definitely stay here again. - 2beagles

The park was nice. There are very few (parks) in the area. The park was very large and sites were pretty well spaced. There was a lot of litter on the ground. Also, in the tent area, people had music playing really loudly. I liked the park but did not like the lack of campground etiquette. I also had trouble with kids playing in the restroom, both boys and girls in the ladies room with no adult present. 30 amp service (no 50 amp). You have to provide your own fire ring and it has to be off the ground. - User3701

NY state park. Sites are very large and shaded all are paved pads. Many pull-through sites.
Reservations suggested; need for full hook ups. Many many tents sites.
This park is huge. All roads are paved. Nice bike riding. Hike trails are somewhat marked but really can't get lost. Access to beach very rocky shore. Close enough to town but you get the rustic camp vibe here. Occasionally you will hear a fire whistle from locate fire dept but not a deal breaker. WiFi is not offered, but you sometimes get service near the main entrance building. If WiFi is important to you bring a hot spot device. You need to bring your own fire ring and wood. There is a camp store. You can rent a ring and purchase wood. - Dmill315

Beautiful open campground, lots of trees. All RV sites are pull trough. Lots of space between sites. Full hookups, only 30 amp. Lots of trails for hiking. No Wifi, cell service is excellent. We love this park. Only downside is because of the trees. satellite service is extremely hard to get. - roybrody

Parked in a row, no trees, but pretty views of bay, some sights also have ocean view. There are some fhu but we didn't one. Great big beach, with lots of space for fishermen and bathers. There is a concession stand opened during summer season. Easy in and out. - dorcol

I called ahead to see if they were open year around. They said yes, but failed to mention on the phone that they turn the water off during the winter months. I camped here for a week and didn't have water. There was water at the main office that I had to transport to my RV. This site looked to be fun during warmer months. - insadj

A very nice park. The sound on one side as well as the Atlantic on the other. The sites were level with a concrete slab, fire ring, and table. There were some sites that had sewer hookup. The only drawback was not much shade. We drove around the communities on the east part of island and had the best clam chowder in our 2 month search of it. Greenport! Take the ferry at Orient to Ct. and bypass NYC. - kenbarbie

This park is really the only game in town, so to speak, on Long Island. It may be that due to the fact that we stayed here at the end of the season,but everyone was helpful and nice during our visit. The park has many long term residents who were not here during our visit. The pool was closed so we can't review it's condition. We had a very roomy site that was all grass. The folks who checked us in were very friendly and really liked our dog. They don't have cable and we think that charging $65.00 a day is very pricy for what they offer, however, it is in the wine country on the island and quiet. - magic box

If you like a super party atmosphere and being cramped like a sardine then go for it. We use our 27' c class to make day trips. The site was so cramped people had to move tables and tents so we could back in and pull out. If you are looking for quiet DO NOT go here. - sneakaway1

We have camped here for 3 years in a row for Father's Day weekend. Each year we encounter a very unfriendly staff, except for one very nice check-in woman. The only reason we return is because of the location, and we never book early enough for the county campground close by. It almost seems that they don't want you to have fun. Every year we get reprimanded for one thing or another. We still make the best of it as we are a group of 6 families. It is very pricey considering the condition of the "clubhouse" and pool. On Sunday by 2:00 there is not an employee to be found as they close up the store and office. The sites are on an open field with roadways. I see other reviewers feel the same, and I would hope the owners would read these reviews and change their ways. - LICamper4

Very friendly place! Being a state park, you would expect trees, but there were none. However, there were nice vistas, including a pretty lake. We only stayed overnight and it was great for that. - FloridaWanderers

Nice park. Not a lot of hookup sites - W/E only. The area with hookups was basically wide open spaces - a grass strip with no trees. Lots of kids/families. It was convenient to area attractions. Would definitely stay again. - DYK 640

This park exceeded my expectations. The park is large and the sites are roomy. The park is very clean and the grass pads were really nice and level. Clean. Did I mention clean? The beaches are easily accessible on foot and the Long Island Sound was really calm and pleasant to swim in even in late September. Meg's Point nature area was a nice bike ride through the park and featured an impressive rocky beach which was really fun to climb and explore. (Or just to sit and view). Very, very pleasant.
Overall the campground is great for children and families. Wonderful vibe. Great bike riding for children and nice hiking areas. I didn't fish, but people were surf fishing from the campground and were catching large blue fish and striped bass.
The bathrooms were clean / each section of the park had it's own bathrooms which was very nice. I never waited to use the shower and the water was plenty hot. There are hook up sites available but if you have the capacity to boondock here you may choose to do so as the dry, non-hook- up sites were the best sites in the park.
In addition to being well maintained the park is run very well.
Campfires are permitted but must be elevated. You may rent a fire pit thingy for about $13... or if you have an elevated fire ring you may use your own.
There's not too many beach campgrounds on the east coast. This particular park had it's own vibe and pleasant unique feel. - Jim and Ben
