Beach getaway

Only about 20 min drive and 30 min ferry trip for us we got to watch hill. Awesome place close to home easy check in and very friendly ppl. It’s a bit of a walk to camp site but all on board walk (we took to carts full of stuff) some sites are not private meaning some site will have your neighbor right behind you. We had site 2 which was a nice private site. Short walk to the beach. Only thing no hot showers as it was a beach bathroom shower. It was a little cooler so showering was not that great also showers are not covered no curtains. Also come with deet repellent as mosquitos are vicious. Over all great weekend

Hard to get

We ended up luckily getting a spot because a friend had cancelled the reservation. Must reserve early in the year for summer spots.

It gets very crowded and very little space between sites so be friendly a tour neighbors are 3-5 ft. Bathrooms are a bit outdated but have running hot water and are clean. No camp fires at site but your allowed to have a fire on the beach must follow guidelines. Beach is right over the dunes very clean beach.

There is also great restaurants in Montauk biking is nice to get around.

Overall good place if you have an RV as it’s really hot no tree coverage..

First time camping PA

First if you have a pet your sites are limited to the pet loop which we has in, site are single car parking and any other car must be parked in a wooded parking area a bit sketchy but no issues, sites are small two tents or one big tent, campground is kept very clean and bathrooms where very clean as well, it offers great trails to the Glenn they are well maintained and kept. Trails are good even for novice hikers. One bad thing was when we stayed there’s was a power outage leaving us with no hot showers..

Good weekend

Pick this park has it was going to be my sons first trip camping. It’s a smaller park with a small hiking trail around the lake there is swimming at the lake with lifeguards, only down side was it had just one central bathroom for the whole campground having to wait for shower stalls was a little issue but very hot water even after waiting which was good and depending where your camp site is it’s a bit of a walk to it..

My favorite place in NY

Campground is big and staff are very friendly and helpful, I have stayed a various sites and they where all spacious slate floor so having something soft if sleep in a tent is recommended. The park offers plenty of hiking trails with great views, Overlook mountain hotel site, you can also hike to katterskills falls it’s a long hike but worth it when you get to the falls if not you can drive down and park at the trail head parking mid way down the road to get to the katterskill falls trail. Make sure to stop at the general store on the corner they have everything you need and souvenirs to bring home..
