We stayed over the Memorial Day holiday. There's a ballfield and playground and of course the ocean. It's what living on Long Island is about: salt air, sea breeze. Helps you get away from the daily grind. On the weekends they have movies for the kids. The camp store has a new owner and seems to be stocked better than in the past. It's hard to get a site during the peak season and one must book for a week. We live locally so we usually stay before and after the peak seasons. Not only are you allowed to book a shorter stay, but you are also permitted to have fires. You must provide your own fire ring.
We camp every July to see the Philharmonic. It's a great venue with a firework display afterwards. The campground is simple. No Hook-ups. Water spigot/fountains every couple of sites. The park itself is large and you would need a vehicle to use the pool & beaches. There are several play areas for the kiddies. It would be nice if they had one closer to the camping area. Also, one has to be careful with ticks when camping here.
Our first trip to CG. The CG was clean but the sites were cramped. The hook-up sites forced one camper to back in and the other to pull-in since the hook-ups were two together. I camped on the river and we were up on a ridge so flooding was not a problem. It appeared the tent sites had more room but the possible problem I see with them is that the sites on the river looked like they would flood easily if the river rose. The bathrooms were clean but I thought they could use another bathhouse, possibly closer to the the tent campers since most rv's have facilities on board. The diamond mines were a neat attraction, however, no one told us we would get a discount since we stayed at the KOA. The pool was small but the kids liked it. It would have been better if it had been heated. The weather was a bit chilly and the pool seemed colder than the river. The arcade was small with only a few games. There was a large field to play sports in. There's a nice sized playground. The weekend we were there they had a DJ and 1.00 ice-cream sundaes. The kids enjoyed dancing with the other campers. All in all we had a great time there with our friends and will most likely go back but request a different site. It appears the owners are making improvements to it, upgrading sites with cement patios, patio furniture, bbq's and planting trees to provide more shade. The staff and owner were very friendly.
