Camping is often defined as temporarily living outdoors, but to the millions of people that love it, camping amounts to much more. It is a way to reconnect with nature, escape the grind, and spend quality time with family and friends . It is a pastime enjoyed by all types of people from the classic tent camper, to those not quite willing to give up all the comforts of home. In our Suffolk County campgrounds, campers enjoy destinations with world-class beauty - from scenic woodland vistas to Ocean front campsites. Combine that with a variety of recreational opportunities available at our campgrounds, and you're set for a rewarding experience.
