Beware the strict no alcohol policy here - and prepare for a car search!!
Best mid week. Weekends you can expect huge NYC family groups. Generators, radios crying kids etc prevail. Beaver Pond is great for its proximity to NY, but it can be its downfall as well.

I love Harriman State Park but not this particular campground. The sites are all extremely close to each other and you'll definitely have large groups nearby with loud radios and making tons of noise throughout the night. If you're just doing a day hike in the area then Harriman is perfect with plenty of great trails sights to see.

Excellent and rewarding hike up to Perkins Memorial at the top of Bear Mountain. Excellent and rewarding hike up to Perkins Memorial at the top of Bear Mountain.

It's probably awesome when it's not crowded, but our neighbors played music and were being loud with way more people in their group than the rules allow for. I wanted to show my boys the quiet of nature but it's quieter to fall asleep at home.
Facilities were nicely kept, lake was lovely. Store well stocked. What kept it from being great was a lackluster enforcement of rules.

we went here on an off peak - week night. it was great, the lake was really nice to swim in. the roads were great to enjoy our motorcycles. the camp site we chose was on a raised platform which was a first for me. I've read to avoid weekends as it gets crowed.
