Let me first explain the poor rating. Overall the campground was fine, clean showers and real toilets,lots of freebies. We have a pop-up camper and was booked for Columbus Day weekend. Well we had to leave on sat night because of the infestation of stink bugs(at least 100). They crawled into our camper while we went out to dinner and we had to spend 2 hrs collecting them. We then packed up and left. We called the next day for a refund of the 2 days and we where denied the full refund. We where given a 1 day refund and lost the price of the wood bundle(6.50) that we could not use. The following day at home was spent collecting another 100 or so of stink bugs. We have been camping for at least 8 years and never experienced anything like this. If you do not have a hardsided rv do not go to this place. We had site 56 near the pavilon.

I was hesitant to stay there after reading the previous reviews for Black Bear. Well I can attest that they have really improved their campground. Large clean well laid out sites. We stayed there 5 days over the Labor Day holiday. Lots of deer on the grounds. The hosts were very friendly and accomadating. I had friends stop by and they were charged a very modest fee to stay overnight.

This is an old campground, not well maintained. Only reason for staying here was proximity to satellite repair people. Lots of seasonals; some look like they've been here forever. Free WiFi but reception in our area not strong. (We needed it until our satellite fixed.) Only a few sites with southern sky exposure for satellite. Kind of kooky old owners, but they tried to be accommodating. They promote their facility as being close to New York City, and tours directly from campground are available. But if reason for coming is to see the City, we preferred Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson with Metro North train station right outside park (where we stayed in August).

160 sites. Many of these are seasonal. 109 full hookups, 51 W&E (20,30 & 50 amps), 10 pullthrus. No charge for AC or heater. CATV, Restrooms and showers, trailer and cabin rentals, dump station, portable dump, laundry, public phone, ltd groceries, RV supplies, LP gas, ice, tables, fire rings, grills, wood, rec room, pavilion, swim pool, basketball, playground, planned activities (weekends only), horseshoes, V-ball. There are a number of hills to go up getting to your site. But despite the hills the sites were fairly easy to get into. The roads were well maintained. Really pretty campground, some trees, but some open spaces for those of us with satellite. These folks were great. More than willing to point out area sites to see and how to get there. The facilities seemed to be well maintained. BE SURE AND ASK ABOUT THE NYC TOURS FROM THE PARK. I highly recommend these. The driver (Al) is a local who adds a lot of personal history about the city.
