Once you get to the park it is well located to see NYC. The drive in is an adventure but the saying "go slow-go wide" makes it doable. The park itself is just a parking lot with the max number of space jammed in. We could not get reservations for electric and water so we were in the "overflow" area and if we return would stay there again, way more room and from our space we could see the NYC sky line and the Statue of Liberty. When we where leaving our slide would not come in after much work we got it in and left 40 minutes after check out time and they charged us $40 for a "late fee", seemed extreme but those were the rules. Given the few options we would stay there again. - sjones

One of the most expensive campgrounds we've ever been to other than Fort Wilderness in Disney. It is nothing more than a parking lot with water and electric. The office doesn't have ice or any other store items, but they have a very informative packet of information. This campground does give you direct access to New York City. Via the ferry or the path train you have easy access. Because you are so close and your neighbor's slides are over the line into your area, you get to know people quickly. - DebGA

The very good about this park is location, location, location. Ferries, PATH trains, etc. all close by. Love the restaurant/bar next door (Surf City) good food and great views of NYC. The bad: It is the worst dump of an RV park I have ever stayed in and paid so much for. Sites are jammed together. No sewer and the RV dump is in the corner and you have to back into it. The electricity is unusable a great percentage of the time. Many times the voltage is under 100. Occasionally it gets to 107. If you ask about the electricity shutting off AGAIN, they say the "park is old". Such low voltage could damage your AC, etc. I have been here 3 times over the years and the electricity is the same every time. I do think the "C" row is the worst. All that said, it is the only place to stay if you want to see New York. - Jhiggins

The RV sites are on a big parking lot right on Jamaica Bay. It can accommodate any size rig. If you're into fishing this is the place for you. With a big rig you need to come in when it's dark because of the traffic in N.Y. When you get here there is no traffic. I left my RV there for 2 weeks while I was out of the country and didn't have any problems. There is an RC airpark and an Archery range. 2 indoor ice skating rinks, games for the kids. convenient to everywhere with public transit. If you need practice driving come here, this is where they teach the bus drivers to drive. They have a dump station and a fresh water station. Plenty of tent sites and 9 RV sites. great camp store. - sflabrkr

Site sloped down from the rear to the front so entry stairs very high. Sewer cap behind the pad at the middle of the pad. Rear tires at the end of the pad. Thirty feet from sewer compartment uphill to a 7" pipe, not a 5". Unusable. Obviously never looked at an RV or talked with anyone. Envelope at gate says drop envelope at Bld C39. No map. Our site was on a poorly marked and gravel road. Been to numerous bases and camps. This is the first I would never return to. - Navychop

Nice park. Large concrete pads with (mostly) elbow room between the sites. Nicely mowed and manicured lawn. Blazing fast Wifi. It is quiet with some shady, some sunny sites. The base's location is very close to catching train or ferry for NYC and the Jersey Shore. The Jersey Shore came as a very pleasant surprise to me as it was new, clean, active with parallel boardwalks and pavilions. Gorgeous homes across the street. A real pleasure to go see. The base is small and the NEX isn't much more than a 7-11, but it is well kept and security is tight. There are a couple of things I would warn you about. When you first drive in to the base you will see a very strange entrance. Go left and make the big loop around to the big building. Yes, you'll drive in to the building to get ID'd. They will check the ID's of everyone in the vehicle. That's the first warning. The second warning is this. You'll be instructed to turn right on T-1 and if your assigned sight is 9 through 15 to make the first right off of T-1 into the park. Do not turn on that first right unless you're only 10' long. Go about 75 feet further, turn right then 75 feet and you'll see a gravel pass through to sites 9 through 15 that is actually wide enough. That first right is only about 10' wide with curbs on both side and a fire hydrant on the corner. You'll see what I mean when you get there. The sewer hook ups are at the back/wrong side of the sites. No bid deal, just have a long sewer hose. We enjoyed the park and the area. - jomark

We stayed here for two weeks, including over Labor Day, and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. Upon arrival at the gate, we were given a welcome packet with our site number and information on where the office is to check in after setting up. When you arrive, you will pull in through a large building which is the ID check. Stay in the right lane, since the left is for commercial deliveries. The sites are long and paved and very easy to back into, but the connections are not placed in the best spots. The power pedestal is located at the back of the pad, and was a stretch for the length of our cable, so check your power cable before you park. The sewer connection is the worst I've ever seen, it is located in the middle of the pad right under where our axels were. I had to crawl under the axels to connect the sewer, and had to remove part of the piping from the plug because it was sticking up four inches high. That aside, everything else was great.
It was quiet and you have enough room to not be on top of your neighbors. Although we did have an issue with one neighbor who had guests over and blocked our parking access, so I had to go ask them to move, even though they were sitting outside and watched us pull up and still did nothing until I asked. The utilities worked well, no cable TV, but over the air channels were fine and wifi is standard Navy GoWifi. The laundry room has three washers and dryers and all worked well. It was perfectly located to visit our family and be able to catch the train to NYC. There is no commissary or exchange on base, but a Super Walmart is about 10 minutes away, and I recommend visiting Delicious Orchards just up 34 for great baked goods, fruits, vegetables and deli meat. The base is small, but we still had plenty of areas to walk our dogs without worrying about traffic.
Aside from the connection locations, it is a very nice campground and we would definitely return. - pfogleboch
