Lots of things to do nearby.

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.

Mainly seasonal

Majority of sites are season all campers with LOTS of cottages. Went early in the season so many had not been maintained in months. Only a handful of full hook up sites surrounded by seasonal cottages. Other area of the place had water and electric but it would be hard to get in/out of if it had rained a lot as it was all on soft grass. Lake was not easy to get to due to the messy walkways and mud. Overall was not impressed. Felt like a trailer park.

Love!!

Stayed in May and August 2018. Absolutely beautiful and CLEAN campground. Shaded and full sun site options as well as rental units if you don't have an RV. Boating pond, fishing pond, playgrounds, cafe/ice cream store, nightly weekend entertainment at their playhouse, new waterpark and two pools, tennis courts, laundry facilities, huge store, firewood and a trolley in the park. There is also another trolly to the village of Lake George, Great Escape and the outlet center. Bike trails throughout with a connection to the local bike trails leading to Lake George and Glens Falls area. Best part- the 2 acre dog park with shaded seating for humans , bathrooms and a dog wash station.

Had no idea it was there!

Stayed in October 2018. Tucked away in the woods I never knew this was there! Beautiful pond and a good mix of seasonal and overnight sites as well as cabins. Plenty of areas to walk our dogs and have them swim. Playgrounds, bath houses throughout and fully stocked camp store with anything you could ever need. Organized events, cafe on site and quick drive (or Uber ride) to Mohegan Sun.

Easy to get to

Located right off the roadway it's a great place to stop when heading South. Have a handful of shaded pull through sites close to the entrance to make getting in and out easy, especially if you like to leave early to get back on the road. Gated access, playground, mini golf, beautiful lake and lots of family activities on the calendar. It's now our go to spot for an overnight stay when traveling from NY to NC.

Beautiful

Convenient to the highway with 24 hour shuttles to the casino 5 minutes away, yet quiet and beautifully maintained. Offers a pool, playground, hiking trail, fishing pond, paddleboat rentals, camp store, very clean bath houses throughout, maintained sites, fire rings at each site and organized in loops to offer wooded and full sun sites depending on what you are looking for. Visited at least once a year since 2016 with our most recent visit being June 2018. Hoping to visit again this season.

Peaceful and fun

Have stayed here multiple times, most recently October 2018. They have a beautiful heated pool, waterfront tiki bar, on site store and restaurant, kayak and golf cart rental and they seem to be adding more every year! They have different types of sites, some gravel, some paved and some with concrete patios and nice furniture included. They also offer cabins and safari tents as options if you don't have an RV. Each site has a firepit and there are multiple clean bath houses throughout, each with laundry. There's a beach on site(soundfront) and a dog beach area as well. We loved the ability to stay in a peaceful campground with beautiful views and still be able to drive to the boardwalk and ocean beaches. Will be back again this year!!
