Lakeside camping in New York City guide

Overview

New York City isn’t exactly known for its lake camping, but look beyond the skyscrapers and let the area’s campsites surprise you. NYC beach campsites tend to border the Atlantic Ocean or the Hudson River, but lake campgrounds come just as far and wide with a little bit of roadtripping. Check in to a Hudson Valley campsite to explore Fahnestock State Park, where Canopus Lake welcomes swimmers, hikers, and picnickers. If you’d prefer a glitzy getaway, opt instead for an A-frame with a hot tub in the Hamptons. Or, try a rustic cabin in Lake George. For even more options, try taking a dip—not in the water, but in the tristate area’s pool of campsites. Lake campgrounds abound in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut, where you can book everything from a dog-friendly RV site to a lakefront cabin that caters to the whole family. With a New York City lake campsite, you’ll never run out of activities or amenities.
