A serene wooded area with glimpses of the river provides an ideal location for camping. Campers will have convenient access to attractions within the park and in nearby towns like Hyde Park, Rhinebeck and Poughkeepsie. There are 46 tent sites and 10 cabins available for rental at the park. Recreational vehicles are also welcome; however, the park does not offer hook up facilities. River access is available for campers with boats at the Norrie Marina and at the Norrie Environmental Center. Restroom facilities and showers are located within walking distance.
Quiet and nice grounds.
The campground was nicely maintained and space was restricted between sites due to Covid. Firewood wasn’t available at the camp, had to drive about a mile to grab some. Close to town so easy to grab needed items. It was situated right across the Hudson River from a highly active nighttime freight train route, and the noise from the horns and then being awake for a few minutes as the train clattered by. The sites were spacious enough to allow for two cars each and probably 3 tents each (saw this at one site). Rangers running the place were pleasant and informative.
Showers always clean bathrooms also
Group camping sites
Single private sites
Great sites and bathroom, friendly staff, right next to the Hudson river. Recommend!
Love this camp ground. Clean staff are very friendly. Great trails. Would like to see them sell real firewood.
We spent two separate weekends at this campground; one during October and the other during early May. Camping here during October was, by far, better. The foliage was turned to all hues of orange, yellow, green, and red. We stayed in lot 109, which was perfect because going through the really faint trail through the trees you can come to a ledge overlooking the Hudson River. We took our few beers and hung out there instead of our camping spot to watch the sunset.
The facilities are on par with most parks. They are dog friendly, so we took our dog with us on our camping trip in May (she loved it). There are a few cabins available to stay in. Only gripe would be that most of the camping spots are really close together and they don't sell logs for fire. They only have fire starter bricks, which get done what you need. They usually have plenty of cut down brush to use for the fires…but be wary of the rain season during April/May.
There are a lot of sweet stuff to see near the park. Close by is the Roosevelt Presidential Library and house, Vanderbilt House, and even further out is Woodstock and plenty of other cool parks.
lots of college kids hang out here
Outdoor lovers dream. Deserted during the week but packed on weekends. Sites are large and spread nicely. There are great hiking trails on the Hudson River right outside your campsite. Amenities are the great outdoors and an ancient bath house built during the New Deal in the 1930's. Not a resort campground. When the park clears out during the week you sleep to the sounds of nature and the occasional freight train in the distance. Norrie point is in perfect proximity to the best attractions in the religion. Visit Lake Miniwaska, Dover Church Falls, Rheinbeck Aerodrome, New Paltz. The park has a marina onsite with kayak rentals on the river.
