“So you want to take a tour of New York City?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

We chose this campground because of their advertised feature for tours to New York City.
Our campsite was located on the upper level of the campground. It was very nice, backing up to woods.
The restrooms and showers were adequate and clean. We recommend requesting the upper level. It is newer and larger motor homes and 5th wheels should have no problem getting in and out.
Now about the tour. Please be forewarned that you will be touring in a standard window van, not a bus. The tour guide was wonderful. He was humorous and offered many tidbits of trivia. He was a patriot and a man who loves the city. He pointed out that due to the van’s smaller size he could take us to some places a bus cannot go. That being said please remember you will not be able to take too many good shots from the windows of the van. We had 7 people with us on the tour which was adequate. There were two people per bench seat. The van had the capability to hold 11 (?) and in my estimation would be much too confining, especially if anyone is “portly”. When booking it might help if you can determine how many are slated for your tour, especially if you are more substantial in weight.

Room Tip: Ask for the upper level.
