We have stayed here twice, very nice. Each shower is private, and spacious. Each site has it's own water hook up. They worked with us on our first stay despite the fact we arrived way late, so I would say the management is easy with work with.

We stayed here for 2 nights & it was $80 a night. The water in the showers was just Luke warm, the only advantage to staying here is they have a bus tour that picks you up at the park & takes you to places in New York, but its very quick the places that you go to. The tour... More

This place should not be in business. The only reason we stayed there for as long as we did was because there are literally no other parks close to where I needed to be for work every day. What used to be beautiful land in the Warwick Valley is now a stripped out mountainside with multiple levels with parking lots... More

We used this campground as a central place from which we visited Tarrytown and NYC attractions and sites. When we first arrived, we were heartened because the entry had green space around it -- but, the campsites are all up a hill (do-able with your camper - paved road), but are rather tightly positioned. It seemed that many of the... More

We visited this campground sight unseen because of the outstanding reviews we had read. Boy, were we disappointed. At $80 per night, we expected at least a level site for our 38' 5th wheel. Not so, my friend. I guess if you're visiting NYC, this place would suffice, but even the bus tours they run out of here take 1... More

We chose this spot for its closeness to NYC. They claim they are 46 miles from Times Square. We pulled it up on Google while there and it said it was 62 miles. We asked about riding the train they claim is 15 miles from the campground. They advised driving 35 miles in the opposite direction for a direct 90... More

Not sure what one reviewer was talking about that the NYC tour was in a small van..we had a large bus, Leprechaun tours, with 38 passengers not counting the guide and bus driver. The guide was an older man, Al, but he knew his stuff. We enjoyed the sights he showed- Times Square, Ground zero, Broadway, Ellis Island and Statue... More

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
