Liberty in Jersey City or Newburgh KOA are pretty much your only choices for campgrounds that offer tours right from their facility.

There are boondocking sites available at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn but you're on your own for tours.

We are staying at Black Bear next week and they offer a tour that picks you up at the RV park. Cost when I booked it was like $115 per person.

From what I understand, it is legal park and reside in an RV on the streets of NYC. The one caveat is that you have to move it at least every 48hrs. Although, I don't know how much that is enforced because there is an RV parked on Wythe Ave. in Brooklyn that hasn't moved for months. If you can boondock, I would just try to park somewhere in BK or Queens that is close to the subway. You could try Wythe Ave. or Kent St. in Greenpoint/Williamsburg which is a short walk to the G and L trains which will take you to Manhattan in less than 20mins. Once you're in Manhattan, go to any of the touristy spots like Times Square, Union Square, or Herald Square, and there will be plenty of guys with red or green jackets selling bus tours etc. Enjoy the city!

We just left Liberty Harbor RV Park where we dry camped in the boat storage area. The full hook up area was full but they put us in the boat storage area where we dry camped @ $60 plus per night. Tours and transportation were available and it worked out good for us.

More room in the storage area and right next to full hook ups.

My husband and I would LOVE to camp in or near NYC, but I'm deathly afraid of driving a big 40' diesel with a tow vehicle through heavy city traffic!

Liberty Harbor RV Park is our choice (there's not a lot). Just across the river from NYC and the subway stop is a short walk or you can take the Ferry. They have tours by bus also. Really easy actually and you don't have into drive in the city to get there.

Amen on Liberty Harbor. Easy to get to, convenient to NYC. Just a gravel parking lot with hookups, but a great view of NYC skyline at night.

Try Battlerow Campground in Nassau County. It is off the L.I.E. and in non rush hour traffic 35 minutes to Manhattan. You can also take the railroad in from a number of nearby towns.
