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.


Good deal. There is a commuter bus into NYC that leaves from the Rockaway Townsquare mall about 10 minutes south off of Route 15, with a portion of the mall lot set aside for those users. The depot for that Lakeland bus company is 5 minutes further south in Dover. Also in Dover there is a NJ Transit train station. Parking at either of the bus options is free; the train station parking is $3 or $4 a day. The buses go to the Port Authority terminal at 42nd and 8th and the train to either New York Penn Station or Hoboken, where there is either the Path subway into Manhattan or a ferry.

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.....


By "the one in NJ" are you referring to Liberty Harbor? Yes, it's pricy, but you can take the PATH subway (which runs every few minutes) rather than the commuter rail (which has a limited schedule). So be sure to check your total daily cost for campsite AND transit.

Also, those hours on the train are hours you aren't in the city. For what you can see in a 3-day stay at Liberty Harbor, you'd need to stay 4 days at a more distant place. Finally, if you are relying on commuter trains, be sure to check the schedules so you don't get marooned.
