Commune With Nature at These NYC Campsites


With another gorgeous New York City summer in full swing, now is the time to grab your summer camping gear and start participating in some seasonal activities. If you're new to the area or on the hunt for some new spots to pitch your tent, your friends at Citiwide Self Storage have you covered with this list of three of the best nearby locations in NYC to commune with Mother Nature.

Battle Row County Park

Located in Nassau County, Long Island, Battle Row County Park is 44 acres of gorgeous woodlands with 64 campsites that can accommodate RVs as well as your tent. While Battle Row certainly has its classic charms, it's also rocking some sweet modern amenities. There is a comfort station with restrooms and private showers if you need them. Bring your buddies and take advantage of the softball and recreational fields, or plan your trip around one of the area’s concerts and other events. You can reserve your spot here.

Wildwood State Park

Wildwood State Park has it all — beautiful hardwood forests with trails, a gorgeous beach, and first-rate camping facilities. Located on the Northeast side of Long Island, Wildwood State Park sprawls over 600 acres and is often referred to as a hidden gem by campers. Trailer and tent sites are available, or you can rent one of their new cottages for 2-6 people. This campsite is popular for fishing and swimming in the summer, and also offers snowshoe and cross country skiing trails for winter fun.

Nickerson Beach Park

For the final entry on our list, we've chosen the coastal campsite of Nickerson Beach Park. Located between Reynolds Channel and the Atlantic Ocean, this 121-acre park offers all the traditional camping perks like hiking and fishing, with the added bonus of lovely sandy beaches. With plenty of activities and events to keep you occupied and additional amenities like RV hookups, Nickerson Park is great for the solitary camper and social butterfly alike.
