New York City Area

The wife and I are thinking of visiting New York City and will be coming from South Carolina. I have read about the one RV Park that is in the city and have seen a couple of nice parks mentioned about an hour away put they are all north of the city.

Anyone have any ideas of a park south of New York City that has easy access to the city via the train/subway/park and ride?

Thanks,
Tom

Liberty Harbor is pricey, but it is your best choice. NJ does not have any CG's close to NYC except Liberty Harbor. Most CG's inNJ are at least a hour away by train; longer by car.

there is a ferry near Liberty Harbor that takes you into lower Manhattan. From there you can get anywhere in the city by cab, subway or foot (I've walked from central park to where the World Trade Center twin towers stood).

Remember you have to get through Richmond, DC, Baltimore and maybe Philly before you even get to NYC. Going through NJ may be the easy part!

I have a 30-acre farm right off I-78 about an hour and 15 minutes from the Lincoln Tunnel. Plenty of room if you need a place to stop before heading to Liberty.

There are propane restrictions on the I95 route in Baltimore. Could be others.

Actually I think I would take I-77, I-81 and I-78.

Also, stay away from the tunnels, cops get excited when you try to go there.

When you get to the eastern end of I-78 in N.J. stay on 78 until you get to the NJ Turnpike. Then head towards the Lincoln Tunnel. There will be an exit for Liberty Park. It has been a few years (like around 10) since I've benn out there so the route maybe different. Others more familiar can chime in.
