New York City family vacation

Last minute family planners here, and wanted suggestions on where to stay to ride horses and hike then go to New York City for a few days. Our family has not been west of Ohio! We have younger kids 6 to 12 and a class A motorhome with no toad. It will be the last week of March

a bad day camping is still better than a good day working.

Not having been West won't present a problem as NYC is East of you .
Can't help with the horseback riding but the only place for you to stay re: NYC is
You don't need a toad . The Path Train is five blocks away and a Ferry comes directly to the park. It's pricey , I think about $75 last I heard but well worth it.
PM me if I can help. I was born and raised there.

If you're going to the East Coast and want to hike, then the Appalachian Trail is it. You just have to check if some campgrounds are open in March.

Focus on the Delaware Water Gap area which is just off I-80. This site has links to area campgrounds:
Campgrounds - Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

Beware the state campground does not open until April 1.

The hike from I-80 up the AT to Sunfish Pond is fantastic. You can also hike Dunnefield Creek and up Mt. Tammity for a great view of the Delaware Valley.

I drive into NYC pretty much weekly for work so let me know what you want to see there. Maybe I'm used to it, but traffic is very manageable.

I agree with Liberty Harbor RV park for staying but there is nothing at the that RV park to entertain kids s they need there own games. We have stayed at that park twice and will stay there again if we get back to that part of the country. I'd suggest buying a 3, 4 or 5 day bus pass on the Red Bus or Gray lines or ??. They provide a great tour plus on and off all over the city and the tickets usually include a boat trip to the Statue of Liberty and many other great sites.
