This park has been upgraded since the last time(15 yrs)I was here. Newer looking shower house,and playground for kids. Sites are level, nice size,mixed open and shady,mostly shaded. No fire rings I would think due to droughty summer,but folks with fire bowl were flame on. I use an LP faux fire for the fun of it,and no smoke. - Kennest

We spent a week here while visiting friends and family on Long Island. It is a rustic campground with very few amenities in a lovely wooded setting. There were many seasonal RVers here, though not having a sewer hook-up must be inconvenient! Our site was asphalt, but we had a very hard time getting our RV level. There is no wifi or cable; very poor TV reception. The restrooms were clean, but there are no laundry facilities. We would probably return for a one-week stay. - Lyn T

This was a decent campground, with a number of permanent residents with campers that looked quite run down. A few conversations with other campers indicated that satellite reception is only possible with carryout dishes, due to trees close to most of the sites. There are garbage barrels located throughout the park that are emptied every morning. Our site was rather short, and even with our 30' 5er back as far as we could go without leaving the pavement there was no room for our tow vehicle. The cost of camping here is greatly increased for out of towners, as seems to be the case at every county owned park on Long Island. I guess they don't want NYC people to consume all the spaces that the locals taxes pay for.
Overall, this is a good choice for anyone wanting to visit NYC, as the train can take you into Manhattan to Penn Station cheaply. There you can access the subway to anywhere in the city. - Thorfinn

This is a county run RV park between Long Beach and Point Lookout. It is convient to the Long Island RR to catch the train to Penn Station, the center of New York City. Sites are back-in only with full hookups. There are no amenities, no wi-fi or cable, but your antenna can get local TV. They have a picnic table, no fire pit but you can use your own, wood burning or propane. The sites are spaceous but there is no shade. It boarders sand dunes that provide access to the ocean, about a 1/4 mile or so. - Michael Kibler

We enjoyed our stay there, very good location for doing, Gold coast, Manhattan, Montauk Light, Hamptons, and to go for a nice walk on the beach. I can not imagine being hear during the summer. It has to be chaotic; there are 500 Beach cabanas right next door and lots of beach clubs in the immediate area. - rontrem

The resident camper was amazing and I would give her a 10! It was a really nice campground with large sites, also a 10. However, it was a terribly, long walk to the beach mostly on sand which was a huge challenge with small children, so that's why I only gave it a 6. They send good directions ahead of time. Be sure to follow them because there is a low bridge very close to the campground. Of course, the hassle of getting there from anywhere other than Long Island, makes it a challenge. The gate locks at 9pm, so if you arrive later, you will need to park in the adjacent lot and walk to your site. Because it is a county park, additional cars/visitors are very expensive ($30/day for non-county residents). There is 24-hour security and the 5 mile/hour speed limit is strictly enforced as are quiet hours. Overall, an excellent campground. We would stay here again. - WollyCampers

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

This park has been closed for the past 3 years. - Don-Deb

I went to this park recently with a few friends. We liked it. It was close to our home and only stayed one day to attend the beach. The beach area did have a lot of people, it was clean but the crowds did leave garbage in the beach area. The park is HUGE, you will need a car to get around. There are not a lot of amenities but if you are tent camping you will like it. I miss the full hookups so not sure if I will be going here again for that fact. We did not use the bathrooms so I cannot comment on them. - AnthonyNYC

Named in 2005 as one of the top 100 campgrounds in the nation. Twenty miles of hiking trails, bicycle and cross-country skiers trails. Swimmers can use the Great South Bay or the swimming pool complex. Huge campground as this is a state park. There are picnic areas, a boat launch ramp, playing fields, playground and 69 camp sites. Fishing. Docking available. Picnic table provided. Must bring your own fire pit. Tents allowed with your motor home. Bring a vehicle with your RV as all activities are beyond walking distances. Only vehicles under eleven feet high can come into the campgrounds. Dumping Station on the grounds. No camp store. Many community activities like concerts in the park. Shopping and necessitied close by. Very easy to find as the park is at the end of a parkway, but the camping area can be a bit confusing to find. 50 miles from Manhatten. No generators allowed after 10p.m. so bring your camping laterns with plenty of batteries. This is a no-frills campground but for the real camping experience, you will not go wrong. - baysquad

Pricy, No amenities, Lousy Customer Service, Horrible roads getting into the park. This is a glorified parking lot for boats that they allow RV's to park at. The problem is that you have no other choice for RV parking in the immediate area and they know it. The Location to NY is good but everything else is bad. There was no internet during my entire stay and they did not care. Said it was a courtesy to have internet and the connection was not guaranteed. The guard let me look at the equipment to try an get it to reset. I laughed. There running an old cheap Cisco G Router that looks to have been built a decade ago. The one on the shelf at Best Buy that cost about $20 bucks. At over $110 per day, they can afford a good router that delivers a stable internet connection. The roads to the park are worse than horrible. Even driving very slow to avoid as much road damage as possible. Which consists of dozens of potholes and bumps from the start of when you get off Interstate all the way to the RV Park. There are dozens of potholes and road damage you can not avoid. (Where do they put the Millions collected every day in road tolls) The roads totally damaged the front end alignment on my coach, damaged one of my steering arms and bent the axel on my tow dolly. $1900 dollars of front end damage to the coach and the tow dolly will have to be replaced. And to stick a knife in the wound. I found an extra $40 dollar charge on my bill. When I called they told me it was because I did not go to the office and sign out. I met the guard at the gate at 6:30 AM the morning I was leaving and told him I was leaving. He never told me I needed to sign out. Guess that they needed the $40 dollars to repair their nonexistent internet. Possibly also to repair their attitudes toward their guests. Recommend you find another park even if it is a few miles away. You will be much happier and save costly damage to your coach. - Chevisn7

We stayed for a 3 day weekend. Other reviews already say it: this is a parking lot with water/electric hookups. We had a row end site, which made it feel more spacious. Our site had a view of the Statue of Liberty - very cool! If you're using it as a base to explore NYC, it's perfect. Walked to the ferry to Liberty State Park. Easy walk to/from the PATH train to Manhattan. Wifi worked fine. We didn't spend much time in the camper or the campground. Be honest with yourself... if you want a "normal" campground or camping resort, this is not a place for you. It's perfect for my family; cheaper than a hotel, close to transportation, and a really unique experience. I definitely expect to stay here again. - justinhscott

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 13 nights in a site for big rigs (A05). The good....If you desire to stay close to New York City then this is a good option, actually your only option. This RV Park has a good gravel pad for each site, however our pad was so uneven we had to set levelers on one side of the unit (yes we do have an auto-leveling system too). Definitely would be a big improvement if this park re-leveled this entire park. This is a very quiet park even though Jersey City is right next door. The laundry facility is clean and equipped with modern washers and dryers. The restrooms and showers were well kept and clean (5-stars). If you have satellite, you'll receive reception here. The office personnel are extremely nice and helpful. We visited several local restaurants based on their recommendations. The bad.....If you're traveling with a dog there's no defined dog area and as far as a grassy area...you'll need to walk across the street. None of the sites offer any privacy and if you visit during the hot summer, no shade trees. This is not a RV Park where you go to sit outside and relax. However, we enjoyed our stay here and we would stay here again. Side Note: We live in the age of WIFI technology and there is nothing to stop this RV park from investing in doing WIFI properly. For some users such as ourselves, WIFI is an important feature and was one of the reasons for our stay here. We know enough not to count on a good signal over the weekends, but during the weekday there is no excuse. We even have the WIFI-Ranger on our roof with a direct-line-of-sight to their WIFI source. There are no trees in the line-of-sight, and the distance is not a factor. - JDC10
