My wife and I stayed for a few nights while visiting family and friends nearby. We did not use the park facilities other than park our camping trailer. Do not rely on the people at the office to assign a proper parking site for you. All sites are grass, no paving, no pad. Not many are level. Do not let the staff assign you to the "overflow" area. If tell them your rig is over 26' they will send you to overflow.... That area is beside the entry road at the entrance to the park, where cars drive by at all times. The site I was on would easily accept the total length of my rig, at 47'. - R V Camper

Note: Roads leading to park are narrow and twisty - you are not lost! just keep following directions, you will get there. I lean towards saying this is not for larger campers - our 21 foot travel trailer was fine, but much larger would be a bit tight due to roads and maneuvering in the campground. Very nice state park. Sites are large and have a picnic table and fire ring. Firewood is sold at camp office. Bathrooms are "state park clean", looked like they were cleaned each morning on the weekend. Attached to bath houses are dish cleaning stations. Water spigots are scattered around the camping area - you can fill your camper if needed, but you can't stay hooked up. Cell phone reception is iffy, it is a hilly and heavily wooded area. Lake is very busy with boats, you can fish from many places (might need fishing license), and there is a designated swim area. Employees are nice and helpful. No alcohol park. Quiet at night. We will certainly return here. - Tom

A great small state park to camp at. First time dry camping in our HTT and it was great. Our only problem was our original site - it was site #1 and it was very steep. Could only open one tent end because I couldn't get level. Had to prop the camper up against the car so that it wouldn't slide. However, talked to the ranger and the next morning we switched sites across the street. Mostly tent camping. Sites in the 60's appeared great. Walk to the lake is pretty long, but beautiful. Small beach, clear water. Park offered free movies for the kids both nights and an ice cream truck also came in. Quiet time is 10:00 p.m. and at 10, it got quiet. Bathrooms looked good for a state park. Had a great time - close to home, relaxing, fun. Would definitely return. - kskuches

Okay, first of all the location is old. Very very very old. It is really really really in a beautiful location. Just amazing. Problem is if you need power ...literally at all, this is not the park for you. This is the worst power you will EVER find at any camp site. WARNING: Were barely getting 25 amps out of a 50 amp circuit. The power spikes are severe. Killed the washer and dryer. Freaked out all electronics. This is in a very beautiful area. You may have to run your generator the entire time here. Power is nearly none functional. Scenic and amazing place to camp, but the power will damage your systems. Sad! - ErikJ

One of the better options when visiting NYC, but I don't plan on returning. The electricity to the campground was intermittent, which posted a big problem on hot days. Most sites are on the small size for a big rig. The campsite is in need of renovation and investment. The county Park as a whole is huge and attracts hundreds and hundreds of people on the weekends. The train station is nearby, but probably too far to walk for most folks. The dumpster area is pretty rough. If the fix the electrical problems, I might give them a look again, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. - Undivided Nation

Been here several times, each time is worse. I don't plan on returning. County workers everywhere riding around on golf carts, but not doing much. Let's start with the bathrooms: heavy mold on the shower curtains, dead bugs everywhere (because the door doesn't close tight and the lights are on all night). Hair, mud, cigarette butts, empty shampoo bottles litter the restrooms. Windows are covered in cobwebs and dead bugs. I've been here a week so far and have only seen the restrooms cleaned once (they need to be cleaned 2x a day). Hoards of city kids bussed in for summer camp walk up from the tent sites and use the same 3 showers / 3 toilets on weekends. 2nd issue: Dumpster stinks and is overflowing most of the time, stray cats everywhere around dumpster. Big sign says "Don't Feed Cats". 3rd issue: Lot's of permanent trailers have been here for years, lots of work trucks, big propane tanks, messy sites. 4th issue: There is a field and hall adjacent to the campground used for family outings/company picnics. Last weekend a large group was there with loud music all day long, and they were playing softball in the field and several balls ended up under my RV and car; I was worried about my rig getting hit. No respect to the campers and kids were running through occupied sites to get water for squirt guns. I didn't drink the tap water because I think it's well water and the campground is adjacent to a huge closed landfill.??? 5th issue: Lots of low branches, the place needs a lot of tree work. All the campers around me have branches scraping their roofs. The Good: Proximity to NYC via train, full hookups, but only 30 amp. Grocery store within a mile. Nice area. - eventanman

This is a nice park for camping, if you are using a tent, but it is not conducive to RV's. When you turn off of Route 301 into the campground area, there is a huge dip and rise in the road, which caused the rear of our 30-foot motor home to scrape on the road. We drove to our back-in site (#27), and quickly discovered that the entrance to the site was at such an acute angle that we needed to be going in the opposite direction to get in. So I headed further into the campground to the first crossroad and was met with a sign that indicated that the road now became one way and trailers were not allowed. So, I backed in the side road and maneuvered around so that I could be heading in the opposite direction, which was no small feat. Back at the site, I was able to successfully back in, but I didn't go the entire way back. We needed to fill the fresh water tank and there was a faucet just beyond the next site. I carry 125 feet of hose, but 100 feet did the trick. Except that the hose bib on the faucet didn't work. I fooled around with the faucet for about 30 minutes, when one of the park officials drove by. He stopped and assisted, but after another 30-45 minutes, he had no luck either. He did offer the faucet at the campground office, but that would have meant driving to the office, filling up, turning around, driving back to the cross roads and turning around, driving back to the site, and backing in, so we opted to use the water in the fresh water tank, but we had to prioritize usage. We finally got backed in and found the site to be very long, and level side-to-side, but not front to back. The front wheels were off the ground. We had a quiet night and, in the morning, prepared to depart. I checked the map they had provided and didn't see a dump station, so I called the office and discovered that they didn't have one. So basically for $53.00, we had no water, no electricity and no dump station. - Love To Travel 2

State park created through donation in 1929. Facilities built by CCC's during the 1930's. Not much in the way of development or maintenance has been done since then. Restrooms are rustic though they do have flush toilets and showers without need of quarters. Most of sites for tents with poor access and tent pad area. Road through park is tight and full of potholes and broken pavement. One of worst state parks, more like unmaintained county park. Has access to beach area across highway. Lots of hiking paths and fishing with several near-by lakes. Designated trailer sites have no hook-ups and were literally sites in a field. No potable water at CG. - Al Z

There are RV parks and places to park the RV. This RV park is the latter. There are 10 sites, all gravel. Most are close to level. We had 50/30/20 amp, sewer but the water on site was turned off due to freezing temps. First, the access is limited as RV's are prohibited on the parkways. The turn by McDonalds is sharp and tight. Manageable if there is no other traffic. Station Hill road is a steep hill, with a sharp turn that was widened and manageable for a 40 foot class A. At the bottom of the hill is the "park". A sign instructs you to pull to the rail road tracks and back in. (A small RV could manage a turnaround though.). The railroad is about 40-50 feet away from the sites and the train comes rumbling through! Lost count but at least one an hour daytime and two or three at night. Unfortunately there is a gated crossing that literally leads to the river and the train horn is required. The commuter trains run across the river and can be heard as well. If you don't like train noise in the middle of the night, earplugs or look elsewhere. The Owners were nice and gave us some local information. Payment in cash only. Utilities worked well and the owners had water available for tank fills. - DJR CMR
