They call it, "LONG" Island for a good reason!


Today is my personal best for most consecutive days alive.

Don't forget the far eastern end of Long Island. Hither Hills State Park has camping and a great beach. It was the first state park in NY.

We also like the area around New Paltz and Poughkeepsie. Several campgrounds, lots to do, great hiking at the Mohonk Preserve, and next weekend is the Clearwater Music Folk Festival near Beacon.

We do most of this every year and we live in western KY, for pete's sake. Go see Pete Seeger at the Clearwater. You cannot top that.

These kinds of posts are what makes this forum so interesting. While we all share a common interest in RV'ing and camping, the unique things that we each have to deal with are neat to hear about and unexpected to those not use to it. What I think of the "metro area" of my city (about 600,000 people) has over 125 campgrounds within a 100 mile radius. I never would think that people would face a problem of having too few choices within 100 miles. Very interesting issues we all confront.


In the North East near cities, campgrounds are few and far away. This includes NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington, D.C. There are few choices and you travel a distance if you want to visit the city. When we were getting our RV we were excited about all of the places that we could visit and then found out that a lot of these places were not going to be easy because of the lack of campgrounds and the distances needed to get from the campgrounds that there are to the cities.

Thanks for the info so far. So far Strawberry Park, Odetah, KOA Mystic, Lake George RV Park and Pine Cone Resort have been suggested. Any else?

There are a few. Smith point, hither hills, cupsogue, shinnecock, Theodore Roosevelt. These are your best bets. Wildwood is also on the beach but the beach is a bit rocky.

It helps to be a NY state resident to get a reservation at Heither Hills. I had to give a NY friend's name and address to get a site.

Camping w/o hookups for a few days opens up a lot of possibilities and we love it.

I am here on the Island too. We like Long island campground in Greenport. We will be there in October for the halloween weekend, its a great time. We will be in indian island the end of july with a group, never been there but hope it will be good. It is hard to do Just a few hour drive being that it takes 2 hours to get over the GW. Lake George area is great, so much to do, fort ticonderoga, saratoga, great escape, and of course lake george itself.

I envy people out west that are only a matter of hours of the most beautiful sites our country has to offer.

I'm open to further places too. I was looking for reasonably close because of my brothers two young boys. They didn't want to be traveling too far.

Hither Hills is great but there are no hookups. Only a few water spigots scattered around the park. Other then that, it's the cheapest place to stay out on the east end. It's also VERY difficult to get a site in season. They alos don't allow fires in season.
