We are looking for a NY State Park rv camp area. We want to ride the train in and visit the tourist stops plus local sites.

The one in NJ is a budget buster. We have 3 little dogs and would like electric and water full hookup best but a dump station is workable.

Check out Croton Point County Park.

If you go, check out the New Croton Dam. A beautiful structure...

There is a highly rated KOA in Newburgh (actual address is 119 Freetown Highway, Platteville, NY) that says they have NYC tours from their campground.

The Newburgh KOA is about an hour from midtown Manhattan. An hour radius will provide a lot of campgrounds!

Wildwood State Park on Long Island is an option. You could take the Long Island Railroad into Penn Station and get anywhere in NYC via subway. And if you decide you want to check out Eastern Long Island (Montauk Point) you could also take the LIRR to the east end.

Any CG around the Rotten Apple will be a budget buster, accept it for what it is. I don't even consider 'budget' when on vacation anyway.

If you could handle dry camping with no electricity there is a NPS operated campground a Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. There are 12 RV sites and 32 tent sites with rates at $30/day.
Bus/subway is about 1 hr. 22 mins to Manhattan($13) or Uber maybe $85 and 30 mins away.
The closest option is Liberty Harbor RV Park only 15 minutes to Manhattan.

Check out this Morris County, NJ public park with a small 18 site W/E hook-up campground:

It's about an hour outside of NYC, and pretty convenient to commuter bus and train transportation into Manhattan. And all of $22 a day.
