Camping New York City (Sort of)

If you like to camp but want to go to the big city, then this is the place to go! Liberty Harbor RV... WE went there and loved it, stayed right across the river from New York City. The only place you can step out of your RV and see the Statue of Liberty! Walk one block and take the path to downtown or catch the ferry from the campground. We stayed a week for 65.00 a night, a room in the city cost 200-600 a night! If you go you need to make your reservations in advance, only 50 spots. If you have any questions just ask.


Liberty Harbor RV Park

Oh! and bye the way I have nothing to do with the camp ground, I just enjoyed going there...

A note about Librrty Harbor.....
We stayed there 2 years ago. Unfortunately it was when Hurricane Sandy came through. Since the RV park is right on the harbor we thought it safer to pull out on Saturday (storm hit Sunday) but we had paid for a week. Asked for a refund and was told no. They would refund only if a mandatory evacuation was ordered. About 2 hours after we left we heard that a mandatory evac was ordered. Could we get a refund HELL NO. Watch your backside at this place.

Just a few questions. How is the drive to the park? How is the surrounding neighborhood? How secure is the location when you are gone visiting the city?

Nick it was very easy to get to, and the walk to the path was safe. We came back one night from town after midnight and never felt threaten! We even ended up eating two nights in a small mom & pop Italian restaurant! We plan on going back next year again!

We considered it very secure. And we are from small town Indiana. The office there will arrange for guided tour of the city. Bus will pick you up at the park and tour the city. Tour includes Time square, Central Park, World Trade Center (very special) statute of liberty. Either a four hour tour or eight hour.

It a short walk to the subway going to the city. I thought about four blocks. And the ferry to the city docks right at the park.

If you are expecting a grass campground this is not that. All blacktop. Great place. Enjoy

Russell

I didn't address all your questions. The drive in would probably be just fine if you listen your GPS. I got lost actually went by both baseball stadiums & thru Harlem. Lol. Guy at park said if I saw all that I for sure was lost. Ha. Rather cool actually. The neighborhood ?? Not the farm field I live in here in Indiana. But that why we travel.

On that trip NY City was not on our agenda originally. We were in Maine traveling south and 14 year old granddaughter wants to see NY City
Grand kids get what the want !! Look up campgrounds. Saw Liberty. Called and they has a spot. That how we travel. Loved it.
