What People Are Saying About Cheesequake State Park Campground

“SO MUCH WILDLIFE! When we came back to camp around 8, we saw tons of crepuscular animals — foxes and raccoons and such. Obviously, you’ll want to secure and/or hoist your food when you turn in. It’s wilder than you would imagine from the great proximity to NYC and the very busy corridor it’s in.” – Nikita, TripAdvisor Review

“The whole beautiful day you can spend at the lake hiking and just relaxing. They offer a beautiful lake beach front. It is very inexpensive to get in, and the grounds are amazing. The trails are spectacular.” – Debra, TripAdvisor Review
