Good Sam Club rates this park 9.5,10,10. Just shows me that Good Sam doesn't check properties very often. The sites were at the top of a mountain. It was very noisy with tractors and machinery running constantly. The permanent residents drove diesel pickups and you can expect to be awakened about 6AM. The electricity voltage averaged about 118. The WI-fi... More

I found the campground to be pretty much as advertised. It was clean and quiet. I chose this one because it is billed as the closest full service campground to NYC. My only complaint (and it is minor) is that the staff was unfamiliar with the area. They were all part time employees from out of the area. So, I... More

Very warm and inviting welcome. Campground does have a steep climb to the RV sites. Many campers were long term, and these RV’s appeared really rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Our campsite was level. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Wi-Fi was strong, and reliable, but weak during busy weekends. DirecTV (free standing... More

Do not pay extra for the NYC tour because it's NOT worth the money! Staff even told us we would have been better taking a train on our own into the city. Waste of money! Not even sure how they figured the cost of it. The activity staff was nice but the building was rarely open. The roads were paved... More

We stayed here 4 nights August 14' This is definitely not a Destination/Resort CG! Check -in was ok. Lots of Info and directions to different places in the. The Pool is near the Office (bottom of the hill). The CG is at the top of the Hill, and they actually have a 20 mph speed limit going up the hill... More

This was an ok campground. We wanted a spot close to the train station that would take us into NYC. So we left camper here and drove the 20 min to train station. Highly recommend that trip. The ladies who run the activity room were great with kids. Other then that, this campground was just ok. I wouldn't choose it... More

Old, spread out, feel like you are inconveniencing the permanence but why no bikes ? A dozen signs saying this but nothing on their web site - even lets you book saying you are arriving by bike. Keeps you fit however - pool is 1/2 a mile from the camp, pool OK, power poor, games room open for 2 hours... More

Where to begin...First the Pros: Beautiful mountain scenery location. Paved roads across the campsite. The campsites are well kept (gravel and grass). The showers are very clean, roomy, individual shower stalls (doors lock). Bathrooms are also very clean. Pavilion for the younger kids is good for arts & crafts. They have a ping pong table, a pool table and ONE... More

This RV park was a great place to stay for visiting NYC. It is close enough to the city to drive in if you want. The park offers a great tour to the city. Good value for the money. It is also close to West Point.
