New York State Parks

I could not find much information on their website. Do you know anything about non resident camping in NY State Parks. I guess each park is different in what they offer. I am wanting to find out what kind of hookups they have and what size trailers they take. Please share your experiences if you have camped there.

Most NYS Parks have no hook-ups. They usually have a dump station. There are a few exceptions such as Wildwood SP on Long Island. I camp at Hither Hills SP on the Eastern end of LI in Montauk, NY. There are no hook-ups, but the bathrooms are super clean and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach just beyond the dunes is worth foregoing hook-ups. In the summer, Hither Hills is the most booked SP in NY. If the setting is what you want, then you sacrifice hook-ups. NYS Parks use Reserve America to book campsites. Good Luck

Over the last 10 years we have camped at 3 different NY. State Parks. One at the base of Whiteface ski area (Wilmington Notch SP.) Basic park, level sites, showerhouse, non-electric.

#2 Redhouse SP in western NY. hilly sites, most somewhat level, showerhouses, about 50% electric sites, beautiful area especially in the fall.

#3 Watkins Glen...4 or 5 loops...only one loop has electric but most of those sites are somewhat tight.

We spent last summer from May through September at Wellseley Island State Park with full hook up in exchange for maintaining one bath house. It is located in the 1000 Islands with lots of activities.

go to reserveamerica.com, that is where you wil find all of the information on NYS parks. you can view each park for amenities and location. many NYS parks have some electric sites, I don't know of any that have full hookups. some of the parks on lake ontario are beautiful. I believe you can stop into any park for the day and pay the $8 day rate (this also allows you to use the dump station).

probably also a campground guide on new york state tourism website. I know theres a nice rest area on rte 81 that is a welcome center, usually they are stocked with tourism/camping info.

4 Mile Creek SP near Niagara and Ft. Niagara (which we enjoyed more than the Falls). Huge park ON Lk. Ontario - some areas with sewer and the price was right!

I'll 3rd 4 Mile Creek...forgot that one on my earlier list of visited parks in NY. Real large grassy sites. 90% are very level....Only about 15 minutes from the Niagara Falls area.

camping in NY state parks

Type in WWW.Reserve America.com to make a reservation for NYS parks/camping. The website includes maps and tells how long the site is and if it has electric. Sites are cheaper if you just show up but you aren't guaranted to get one. Cheaper rates Monday to Thursday. Water is available to fill up before you get to your site. Rest rooms have showers. We use flip flops. Dumpsite is available. Not all sites have electric. I've camped at Allegany state park and four mile creek state park. We also camped at Green Lakes state park. Many state parks to choose from.
