There is Liberty Harbor RV Park which is close. Others on the forum even stayed at the KOA in Newburg, NY.

Your other options in NJ are about one hour away. Mahlon Dickerson Reservation in Morris County. Jugtown Mt. Campground in Hunterdon County.

On Aug 11th, we stayed at Liberty Harbor RV Park. We would do it again. Close to everything. Be prepared to camp in a parking lot. Elec and water, no sewer, has dump and good showers. Ferry to everywhere.

depends how long you want to stay. Liberty Harbor RV Park is about $75/night. Hudson Valley KOA (last time I checked) was about $ 50 per night. Didn't check Newburg KOA.

Another option is to stay in PA off of I-78 and drive to Raritan, NJ and take the NJ Transit train into the city. There are stations closer to PA, but the train stops at Raritan after a certain time of day.

We have stayed at Liberty Harbor twice and will do so again when we travel back to that coast. You can see the Statue of Liberty from the RV park but not the side you normally see shown on TV. You can see her back.

Assuming you haven't done NYC - you can take a ferry from the park or a train (subway type) a couple of blocks from the RV park to get to downtown NYC. It you are going to be in that area touring NYC I'd suggest you buy a three day ticket (or two or four) on one of the city tour buses - on and off where ever you want - and the tour bus ticket usually includes other things such as museums, Empire State Building, Liberty Island, museums, harbor tours, etc. On our two trips we just didn't have the time or energy to use all the options. We found the people in the NYC area to be very friendly and helpful (unlike the stories we heard 30 or 40 years ago). We were having trouble figuring out the ticket machine and a "local" came over, asked what we were trying to do, and then helped us do it. Rush hour is extremely crowded.
