Look up Liberty Harbor RV Park in Jersey City, NJ. It is right across the river form New York and the ferry leaves from the harbor. Buses to the city every day. I think it is $75 a night, but for close to the city, that's cheap. Basically a large parking lot with hookups. Good security though. Liberty Harbor RV

In addition, I would ask around more about taking a car into the city for sightseeing. Parking fees will cause severe wallet shock and is tough to find where you want it. Bus, subway and cabs will get you around.
Newburgh NY KOA. About an hour north of the city. You can take the train in Beacon NY across the Hudson River from Newburgh. Or, the KOA has a tour bus that picks up in the park. Pricey but very nice if you don't want to drive. Leaves 7am and gets back about 7pm. Well worth it in our opinion.

I have been To Croton Point and Liberty Harbor. Both are great.
Liberty is very close,20 minute Ferry ride across Harbor.Basically just a parking lot with hook ups.
Croton Point is more of a traditional state park with hook ups, hour+ train ride to city
I enjoy and would return to both.

Would anyone recommend driving in and park in a lot? I have 8 people in the party. 4 adults and 4 children. Or should I take a train or alternative transportation into the city
I would strongly recommend not driving. Once you made it into the city,(that would be a challenge for you, particularly since you are not familiar with NYC) The car would still be a liability for you . Parking is expensive. At some point you would still need to use public transportation to move about within the city. There is no point in driving.
