“Geared towards tenters and small poppup campers!”

Reviewed May 02, 2019

Overall Rating

First off if you rig is 11'0" or taller you can't even get into the campground. There is a bridge you have to pass under just after the office/check in station. I'm sure it says this somewhere on their website but I missed it. Fortunately our trailer is only 10 feet high so we made it under without incident.

Once inside the campground you'll find not many sites are level and even fewer have anything resembling a driveway. Our site, #16, is one of the few that can reasonably accommodate a trailer larger than say 25 feet. Most sites are plenty deep but they are at odd angles for backing a trailer into them.

It really is a nice campground once you get settled it. Lots of great hiking inside the park.

We visited this campground from 04/22/19 to 05/02/19.

“Great park close to NYC”

Reviewed Jun 26, 2018

Overall Rating

This park is not far from NYC and reasonably priced. It has a very large beach on a lake and several excellent trails to hike. It's large, so you have to drive to get to the lake or nature center.

My biggest complaint was that our site was soft dirt and not level. Other sites seemed to be much more level.

One bad thing about the park was the mosquitoes. When we arrived and setup our levelers, 7 mosquitoes flew into the RV in the brief time we had the doors opened. They also were a constant nuisance when hiking. We talked to a ranger and he said there were the worst he's seen in 22 years.
