Liberty Harbor - Manhattan access

Has anyone stayed at the campground across from NYC? Called Liberty Harbor. Need to take whole crew to a function in NYC and looking for somewhere we can stay with access to the city. They claim nearest campground to NYC

We stayed 2 nights 2 years ago. All it is is a safe place to park that has bathrooms, showers and hook ups. They are very close to the ferrys and within 15 minutes your at wall street. I would definitley recommend it not as a campground or resort but a safe place to sleep while your visiting the city. We are planning a fall trip.

I'm sure you've read the reviews. It's basically a parking lot with water and electric. $80 a night, 7th day free. Close to ferry to Manhattan and 5 blocks from PATH train to same. Next closest RV park is about 2 hours away. If your main goal is see NYC using RV as a base, Liberty Harbor is it.

Ditto on the above posts.

Great place to stay when visiting NYC. Great view of Manhattan in one direction and Statue of Liberty in the other. Water taxi or the train both easy to use. Water taxi was more expensive, but is right at the front of the campground.

Definitely cheaper than a $400 hotel room.

Regarding hookups, however, only water and electricity. No sewer, just a dump station which can get busy in the morning when people are leaving.

We've been there a couple of times and it worked well. Short walk to the train to get into the city.

We also have stayed there - taken the ferry and/or trains/subways into Manhattan. If we do NYC again we'll stay there again. Certainly not fancy, no pool, etc. but convenient to the transportation and it feels safe for us rural folk from Oregon. If visiting NYC for a few days I'd suggest you buy one of the city tour bus rides - on/off and narrative around the city. Gray line, red bus and others offer good tour deals. As a side note we were impressed by the New Yorkers - helpful with directions, young people got up and offered seats on the subway - wow! not what I'd thought would happen in that city.

Just a suggestion, but I have not stayed at either of these . Quite a bit further out from NYC than Liberty Harbor . More amenities

Stayed there last year on our East coast trip. Just a parking lot that is fenced in. The ferry to NYC is just across the lot. Path train to City is 15 minute walk. Maybe 5 blocks. Certainly no state park but seemed safe enough too us. Will stay there again someday when we want to visit NYC
