We have stayed at both Liberty Harbour and Newburgh KOA. It depends on your preference. Both have plusses and negatives. Crowded at Liberty vs. train ride, maybe 45 minutes from Newburgh.

For me it's stay in NYC or stay somewhere else. If you are in town to see or do other things including: camping in a traditional matter and take train rides. Stay on the fringes. Croton Point and Newburgh are options. But if you are there to enjoy NYC stay at Liberty Harbor

You will be across the Hudson from Wall Street and can take the water taxi from the campground or you can walk 2 blocks up the street and take the light rail into World Trade Center plaza or to Times Square (34th St.) That option is much cheaper.


I think you're getting your trains mixed up.

There's a light rail stop (called Marin Blvd) a couple of blocks from Liberty Harbor, but that train doesn't go to Manhattan; it stays on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River.

The train that goes into Manhattan is the PATH train, and the stop for that (called Grove Street) is about 1/2 mile from Liberty Harbor. You walk past the light rail stop on your way to the PATH stop.

You can take the light rail for a few stops and catch a PATH train into Manhattan at a different stop, but you'll have to pay both the light rail and the PATH fares separately.

And you said the PATH train goes to "Times Square (34th St.)." The last stop on that line is called 33rd Street, and is by Macy's, not Times Square.

Newburg KOA. Bus was $65 each to city tour Statue of Liberty tour, Empire State tour, Rockefeller Center and Broadway, well worth it.

Never stayed at the RV park but have stayed at the marina across the water. From the RV park there is a cross river ferry literally a few steps away. Can't ask for better.

We have resv this summer at liberty. This place is not meant to be secluded! It’s meant as a place to park and sleep. It will be cool to see he Statue of Liberty from the campground.

We also stayed at the Newburg KOA and did the bus tour into NYC. Very enjoyable and our tour guide did a wonderful job. During our trip a couple we were traveling with had a medical emergency. Luckily it turned out not to be serious. But the guide held the bus for us and we were able to continue the tour.

We really enjoyed the bus tour. I was so nice not to deal with the traffic near and in NYC.

If we are ever in that area again will will stay at the Newburg KOA
