Disclaimer- it's not actually in Newburgh or NYC. Its located in Ulster County. It's a convenient place to de-winterize and ensure all systems are working as it's actually in my town. Some sites are hard to get into and others are in more of a large parking lot, but I think that is for workers for local pipeline companies. They have been working on upgrades and adding more patio sites which does improve the place. They have lots of things to do for the kids and a fishing pond as well. Trips are organized to NYC and it's about a half hours drive to a metro north station if you wanted to take a train South. Not far from SUNY New Paltz, local wineries and apple orchards and it's a reasonable drive to Walkway over the Hudson and the bike baths that connect to it. It is located on a quiet road, however the property backs up to the NYS Thruway.
I love this campground they have counselors who lead activities with kids in the summer and two pools plus a rock climbing tower, manifold, basketball and a bounce pillow and more… they have rental boats for a lake and fishing at the lake too. If is a great place to bring kids and you are never board! Even when it rains they have activities in the tent outside!
The was definitely an older, less updated campground. The bathroom facilities were a little dated but clean. The camp store is big. The staff were friendly enough. We actually stayed in a one room cabin for this this trip and it was clean but very basic. We traveled to the city by train both days, it is about a 10 min drive to the station and a 45 min train ride with amazing views along the ride!! it did have 2 pools, a mini golf course, playground.
