Situated on Lloyd Neck, just north of Huntington, NY, Caumsett State Park is a charming recreational area for locals as well as visitors touring Lloyd Harbor. Resting on a scenic peninsula just over an hour away from New York City, the 1520 acre park offers a diverse range of activities, which makes it popular among motorhome camping enthusiasts visiting Long Island. To experience what it feels like camping with an RV in Long Island, search for an RV in Suffolk County and let the adventure begin.
Originally developed in the 1920s as an English estate, the park was later acquired by the State of New York and made a state park in 1961. The park is focused on providing a rich habitat for the birds in the area. It also serves as a recreational park where visitors can enjoy just about anything from hiking to scuba diving and fishing. To enjoy all the park has to offer, book an RV near Caumsett State Park.
Horse stables, good trails, and chirping birds, Caumsett State Park is a fantastic place if you’re an outdoorsy kind of person. If the kids tagged along, you’ve got to take a hike down to the beach where you’ll get awesome views of Long Island and Connecticut. Take advantage of the lovely landscape to capture a couple of family portraits.
Thanks to Long Island Sound, there’s always a constant breeze in Caumsett State Park, and that means one thing! Kite flying. There is a massive field inside the park that is perfect for just this. Be sure to bring along some food and drinks for a picnic in case hunger comes calling.
Cycling is a great way to burn calories while on vacation. Make sure your mountain bike is securely strapped on your travel trailer, though, as there aren’t any bike rentals at the state park. When you’re looking forward to some fishing, ensure you’ve got a license. Don’t forget to bring a can of bug spray.
While the park offers fantastic outdoor activities, RV camping at Caumsett State Park, unfortunately, won’t be possible as the park has no campground. Luckily, there are a couple of RV parks in the area. Should you be a culture seeker, look up the Battle Row Campground as it’s situated in Old Bethpage, just a short distance from Hempstead and Hicksville. The campground offers electric hookups, restrooms, and showers. Battle Row Campground is also big-rig accessible, and pets are allowed.
When you’re looking for full hookups to compliment your luxury campervan, check out the Nickerson Beach Campground in Lido Beach. Apart from water, sewer, and electric hookups, campers also get to enjoy good mobile connectivity at the pull-thru sites. The park sits right next to some sand dunes, and the beach is just a short walk away.
Before packing up your rental RV and setting off for more adventures, you’ve got to set aside quite a fair share of hours for exploring the Big Apple as it is packed full of attractions. You can’t say you’ve been in New York City without a stunning selfie with the Statue of Liberty standing majestically in the background. Quick tip! To avoid the long queues of people buying tickets either for a ferry or the museum, look up ‘skip the line’ tickets online before your visit.
If you’re not afraid of heights and want to find your bearings around the massive concrete jungle that is Manhattan, a visit to the Empire State Building will help cure your wanderlust. An elevator ride 82 floors high will take you to the highest visitable point in New York City. Up there, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the bustling metropolis below. If you’re lucky enough to pop up on a clear day, you’ll be able to see as far off as Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
New York City is a major hub for art, culture, and history. You’re lucky if all three intrigues you as you’ll be getting to cross multiple attractions off your bucket list. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a behemoth of a museum housing thousands of artifacts from across the globe. From Chinese calligraphy to Egyptian mummies, you’d need a couple of days, perhaps weeks, to fully tour the museum.
Take in the magnificent views through the lens of a camera, as New York City won’t disappoint. Bring along a camera and take a ride aboard the Staten Island Ferry for fantastic views of the city from the water. When possible, book a helicopter tour for the ultimate panoramic view of New York City’s skyline.
