Nice state park

Clean bathrooms and nice grounds

Location, Location, location

This is all about location. The closest RV park to NYC. It's basically a parking lot with a dump station. Not much else. Pick one of the larger end row sites to get a little extra elbow room. If it's packed, your neighbor with be within inches of your rig. Pluses, minutes walk to the Statue of Liberty, liberty Science center. Two blocks away from NJ Path train into Manhattan or take the ferry to Wall Street!

Not bad

No one in the office so you have to check in over the phone which isn't easy with bad reception in the area.

Camp sites are close together with no privacy but decent sized. You get a table, fire ring with out a grill, water, electric, and enough room for a large cabin tent or a few small tents.

Showers are clean and have hot water. No locks on the toilet stall doors which is really weird. Playground, pool, big open fields, horseshoes, basketball hoop. No hiking trails. No pond or lake for fishing.

$50 per night

Glorified Parking Lot

So… the “campground” is nothing special. Literally a parking lot with water & electric hookups. Larger rigs will barely have a yard. And don’t bet on a private picnic table. On a slow checkout day, you might get lucky enough to not wait in line for the dump station.

We’ve paid much less for “more”… the $120 price per night was ridiculous. But being that they have no competitors in the area (and they know it), RVers wanting a quick escape to see NYC can get it here. The ONLY thing we really liked about it was it’s convenient location to the city with easy access to the ferry boats.

The area itself was under a ton of construction when we drove in, which meant for difficult to navigate roads and we barely squeezed by larger trucks who were also in the roadways. But we did manage to walk our way to the marina restaurant “Surf City”, which was a unique and fun spot for end of day dinner & drinks.

We would only consider staying here again during the “off-season” months when the campground isn’t busy. The woman who checked us in was very pleasant and helpful when helping us figure out how to get around without driving.

Beautiful day

Beautiful day enjoying the day with my sweetheart picnic and kayaking and fishing enjoying the breeze off the water watching everybody else fishing off the bay and in their kayaks watching the Jetske’s and the fishing boats go by

Relaxing Weekend Floyd Bennett Field

With everything going on it’s good to beable to get away for the weekend to camping under the stars to fishing and kayaking Just enjoying the time to ourselves we all need a break every now and then just regroup and this is no better way

Great place for hiking

Nice and flat! Watch for ticks!!!

Nice spot for drive-in

Thankfully no RVs here. Very much enjoyed the stay

Nice and remote

We were wholly unprepared to joke about it 8 miles to a campground, despite that and the thunderstorm, had an amazing time. The only issue was that though we were told it was hike-in only, there were clearly many people who drove in, including an group around midnight with music blaring. Thankfully the ranger were called and they were kicked out. Nice spot. Flat hike, if you like that. But great for being so close to the city. Would go back again.

Beautiful Area Enough room for fishing and kayaking

Enough room for fishing and kayakingWe were at Floyd Bennett Field for the fishing expo it was there for three days weekend in May 2018 The main sponsor they put the fishing expo there was retiring we were hoping that someone else would take his place and we would continue to have the fishing contest archery contest and kayaking fishing along with The activity for the children it was a full family affair with everyone with their tent set up the grills everybody checking out each other‘s campsite we were just one big happy family everyone came from everywhere Brooklyn upstate Nyack,Philadelphia ,New Jersey got to meet new friends kept in contact with a few of them and we still come back to fishing and kayaking
