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

If you are wondering why you cannot find any reviews on this "worst campground" in the USA, read on. This was our first time in the New Jersey area. Since we live out of state, we searched for hours online to find an rv park within reasonable proximity to the New York City area. We did a Google search and found Sun Air Campground. We phoned the owner to ask if he could accommodate a large motorhome, if it was easy to get to New York City by mass transit and what amenities they had. I was led to believe that everything was fine; no sewer, but good electric and water hookups, a dump station and fishing just steps away with a nice view of the lake. We believed we would be staying in a nice country setting with good access and modern amenities. So here is what we saw upon arriving in town. Without a GPS we never would have found this place. No directions were given on the website. When we turned onto Cozy Lake Rd, it was a very narrow road in a residential neighborhood with low overhanging trees. There were no signs along the road to provide direction until we finally came upon a small weathered sign nailed to a tree by a driveway. This was our first clue. The driveway entrance was rutted and rocky with pot holes, heavily wooded and very narrow. We pulled into a turn around area and straight ahead was a rundown modular residence with a little sign "Office" above the door. I knocked on the door (9:15 am) - no answer. My wife and I walked down the road into the campground only to be met by a vicious barking boxer, luckily on a chain in front of what looked to be a permanent trailer residence. The available sites were uneven, difficult to get into and covered in leaves and tree limbs. All occupied spots looked like permanent residents. We immediately decided this campground would not even rate a negative one star rating. There is a reason why there are no photos of the campground on the website. Cut-out areas in a heavily wooded area does not make a decent rv campground. We knew we were taking a chance on this place with so little information online, but we thought we'd check it out. Couldn't see any satellite images on Google maps because the area is so overgrown and the buildings are trashy and in horrible shape. In our 20+ years of motorhome travels, this is truly the worst place we have ever seen. Needless to say we drove on down the road. - cal corvette

Family owned, people are nice. Gravel roads that are not maintained, gravel sites, ours was not level even with the use of leveling blocks. We parked by the lake, which was full of algae. There had been a boat dock at one time, now the area is roped off with "do not enter" signs. There is only one bath house for showers that is in very poor condition. You have to pay to use the shower. There is another bathroom that is in even worse condition. Neither were clean. There is a dump station, but no sewer hook up. The majority of the sites are seasonal renters in run down trailers. This place only takes cash. - esta34950

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

Just spent two nights in a 40’ FW. All the other reviews are true. This was not a Campground in our opinion. It’s just full of contractors, working personnel, and just full time residents. And sadly, most are some pretty scary RVs. We really didn’t feel safe here, so we didn’t go outside much. It is a dump. Utilities worked perfect. The worker in the office was not from the area and knew nothing we asked. If you are a big rig, fifth wheel with less than 9” inches bed clearance, or anything low to the ground, Do Not Visit this campground. The gravel roads are just river rock with giant potholes. GPS will take you to the wrong entrance. The swimming pool is a tiny above ground pool that doesn’t have water in it. All the water ponds are all washed out and looks terrible. And of course, comes mosquitoes. We will never return. I’m just glad our fifth wheel wasn’t damaged getting in or out. Large shopping center across from the back entrance. - jabberb

We stayed here for 2 nights in late March. The entrance our GPS brought us to was the back entrance and it had a gate that was permanently locked which blocked the road to the front entrance. On the exit they have spike strips to prevent people from driving the wrong way BUT these are located on a hill so make sure to not roll back. The roads were all gravel and were pretty beat up with large holes everywhere. Getting to our site was very tricky as they have 5th wheels sticking out to far from the site on both sides of the road which only gave us a couple of extra inches to squeeze by without scrapping one or the other. I would not stay here again. - CamperWill136

The campground is neither great nor terrible. It seems to have a large population of permanent residents, but most seem to maintain their campers and sites. There are a handful that look pretty trashy. Unleashed, uncollared, untagged dogs running loose. Lots of dog poop everywhere. The sites are mostly pretty tight, especially if you have slides on both sides. The neighbors awning is hanging over into my site a bit. Too tight to even bother putting out a chair and sitting out. Water pressure is good, power is steady. Didn't use the cable, so I cannot comment. Good signals on both Verizon and T-Mobile. Nice power box. Was able to put a lock on it to secure my surge suppressor. Road coming in is very, very rough, narrow, windy. Lots of pot holes. It did appear that there are preparations to repave and possibly widen a bit. It's safe enough if you drive slowly. I'm here a couple of nights for a work assignment. Not a place I would likely to return to for any other reason. - cKarlGo
