About New York Camping

No matter what kind of camping you’re into; seaside, mountainside, lakeside, even city side, New York has it all. There’s a countless number of places where you can pitch a tent, park a car, or rent a cabin. Camping in New York also means you’ve always got a ton of activities nearby, like swimming, hiking, fishing, canoeing, even mountain biking.

Some of the best camping in New York can be found in the Finger Lakes. Here you’ll find places like the Hickory Hill Family Camping Resort that offers themed weekends, as well as spa services, mini golf, wagon rides, and swimming pools. One of the more popular Finger Lakes destinations is Watkins Glen State Park, which has 19 waterfalls within a two mile walk. The park also has an Olympic sized pool, hot showers, and restrooms.

Dreaming of city life? The Hudson Valley region offers many wonderful places to pitch your tent. Located near the Hudson River, the towns of Kingston, Poughkeepsie, Peekskill, West Point, White Plains, and Suffern (to name a few) all have great areas for camping in New York. And, they’re all accessible by train to and from the city.

If you’re into small maritime villages on the other side of the Hudson River and the East River, Long Island boasts some of the best camping in New York. On the island, surf-casting, fresh seafood, and sandy beaches are plentiful. If you make it all the way out to the end of the island, a visit to the Montauk Lighthouse, which was commissioned by George Washington, is a must see.

And, if mountains are your thing, head to the Catskills, the Adirondacks, or even Bear Mountain State Park where you’ll find forests, hidden streams, hiking trails, and mountains galore. Whatever your style, you’ll find camping in New York to compliment it. With the Dyrt, you’ll be able to discover just the right place to lay your head for a night, a weekend, a week, or even a month.

Convenient but noisy

Basic, clean campground about 20 mins from the Falls. Very convenient with nice workers but likely wouldn’t book again. The noises of the town made it very difficult to sleep in our tent. It’s right off the main road and nearby trains blared their horns throughout the night. Might not be that bad…

Avoid 188

Overall, the place was beautiful. Very peaceful, lots of privacy, and we loved it. We camped on site 188 for 3 nights and really enjoyed having our own private “beach,” however, we it was extremely boggy! The campground had put down sheets of plywood to help, but still the ground was so soggy that…

Primative camping on lakefront

Primative, badly maintained, tent sites. Widely spaced. All sites on lake front. Canoe rentals available for paddling to sites. Some sites having their own docks. Very heavy bugs. Primative old pit toilets at each site. Be advised, this is bear country. Campground managent very poor, uncaring.

Summer Solstice

We stayed here for a long weekend in June, just after the Summer Solstice. Lets just say it was perfect in every way. Unfortunately we couldn't get over to Canada.

Amazing sites, great location

My family of 4 camped here for a week (10-3-21 through 10-11-21) in the 100 acre side, and it was WONDERFUL! The sites are so roomy with gorgeous trees offering lots of shade and fall foliage. Sites are not level but are clear of debris and obstacles which made it easy for us to have room to get it…

Classy campground with caring staff!

Treetopia is in a class all by itself! We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the campground. We went in late September and stayed on one of their deck sites with our Class B (Winnebago). I LOVED sitting out on the deck every morning for my coffee while taking in the fall air. It’s obvious that…

Full hook up would’ve made this better, other than that 5stars

We had an amazing time at this park! Friendly people, plenty for the kids to do. Playground in walking distance and private sites! We loved it here. Will definitely return. You need a long hose for fresh water in the RV. No sewer sites.

Checked in late, received a warm welcome

I was stuck at the US/Canada border for almost two hours coming from Michigan. Then caught in severe thunderstorms wich cause me to get to the camp site at 9:30.

I called at 6 saying that I'd be late but the days just kept piling up. When I arrived the lady was still friendly and asked about my…
