Planning a family camping trip may seem challenging for New Yorkers because it often requires plenty of equipment, including a car. But, actually, your next camping adventure might be easier than you think. There are plenty of family-friendly campgrounds nearby that offer extra fun amenities to make camping fun and easier for kids and families.
No car? No problem? You can go camping in NYC and some other campsites are accessible via public transportation. If you don't have your own camping gear, there are campgrounds that provide nearly everything you need to have an amazing camping experience.
Camping is a great experience for kids, and, although there are a number of deluxe campgrounds offering fancy perks from wi-fi to heated swimming pools, many camping sites are low-tech, so they allow families time to unplug and reconnect with one another. Plus, tent camping is an affordable alternative to a hotel. Remember, some of these favorites book up early!
