short trip out of N.Y.City

My wife and I are looking to do a short trip in a couple of weeks.We are looking for something on a lake about 2 to 3 hours out of N.Y.C.(or shorter).We have a 37' class A and would prefer a campground with full hook-up.Any suggestions? Thanks-Chihuahuabus

A possibility is a campground near Bear Lake, which is near West Point. Minimal research indicates it's primarily a tent campground, and big rigs can't turn sharp enough to cruise around the campground. Your 37-footer may be too big. But check it out, just in case. Beaver Pond Campground in Harriman State Park.

A campground on the water, within a coupla hours of The City, is probably not an economically viable business plan. So plan on going a bit further to get out of commuting distance of The City. For example, there is at least one campground in Pleasantville, NJ just out of Atlantic City, that might meet your needs. It's close to the water, but it's not on the water.

The Northeast PowerStrokes club held a few annual ralleys near Lake George, north of Albany. I made one or two of those. Our campground was not actually on Lake George. A quick Bing search indicates there are probably not any good RV parks actually on the water at Lake George. One that's close is:

Brookwood RV Resorts
133 State Route 9n,
Ticonderoga, NY(518) 585-4462

Of course, Ticonderoga is more than a coupla of hours away from The City.

Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.
