“It's all about the location of your site....”
First, let's start with the fact that there are TWO Robert Moses State Parks in New York. One is on Long Island. This is not it. This park is often referred to as Robert Moses State Park - Thousand Islands to avoid confusion.
Second, to get to the park, you have to go through a tunnel under the Eisenhower Lock. The height of the tunnel is 13' 6". You can fit, we had no problem at 13' 4".
Third, a big attraction for this state park is the Eisenhower Lock in the St. Lawrence Seaway. Get the right site, and you can watch the lake freighters from your campsite.
Fourth, the price we paid during the last half of the summer of 2019 was discounted 50%. Due to high water levels on Lake Ontario and the Seaway, the state of New York was offering a discount to attract people to the parks.
Parts of this state park deserve four stars, other parts deserve 3 stars. It all depends upon where your site is. Sites 37 through 53 all have wide open views of the Eisenhower Lock. Sites 182 to 194 on the south side of the road all have views and paths down to the water's edge. Sites on the north side of the street have limited views of the Seaway. All the other sites in the park deserve only 4 stars.
Check-in can be a little confusing. You have to go to the campground office at the beach to register. There is plenty of parking for big rigs there.
The sites are paved surrounds by grass and trees. There is power only at the sites, with water available at various points throughout the campground. There is a decent dump station, but it can get busy as people leave on a Sunday morning.
Since we are self contained, we didn't check out the bathrooms, but they looked new. There was some over-the-air television. Both Verizon and ATT worked, although the closer you are to the town of Massena, the better they work.
All in all, this is a decent state park. If you like to watch ships, you will enjoy this place. Make sure you visit the Eisenhower Lock Visitor's Center (open Memorial Day to Labor Day) and go up the observation platform. Visit http://www.greatlakes-seaway.com/en/navigating/map/index.html to see when freighters are coming through.
