Croton Point happily took our reservation months in advance, knowing the exact date we would be arriving (April 1). They proceeded to only tell us 24 hours in advance after a cross country road trip that they weren't sure if they would open on time due to weather issues. I was aware that winter weather in the north east could be an issue so that wasn't the big deal here.
The bigger issue that was when we arrived, the campsite was 1/3rd full with full-timers that had been there all winter. If you aren't going to open on time that's one thing, but if you already have people on-site ... you're open. When they assigned us our spot after guaranteeing a LONG pull through site for our RV and trailer behind it, they finally admitted they have no pull-throughs at all and gave us one without a working water spout. The excuse being that our site wasn't winterized so they had removed it for the winter season. We were surrounded by empty sites at the back of the camp ground that had water available, but they gave us THE one that didn't. They denied me the chance to move to another site, as they were 'all booked'. In the entire time we were there, no one else showed up anywhere on the back 3 rows of spots.
After our first few nights in the campground, they told me I was not allowed to use all of my hoses to reach another water head, fill my fresh water tank and then disconnect every few days - which is exactly what their grounds keepers told me to do.
They then also decided that an adjustment in the rules meant that I had to pay for 2 spots, since my RV was towing a trailer.
Once the 2 week in 2 week out rule came to light, which they also failed to mention in any of the months leading up to our trip, we decided we were done with the place.
And WiFi? Yes they have it... at the front office building which is a 5 minute drive from the RV park area, with the small parking lot you can not loiter in. That's it. We ended up heading to the public library a few miles away. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Motorhome.
No wifi in park, so plan on using the local library.
