Added by Chiara Klein

  • Peaceful wooded area with Hudson River views
  • The park has over 1,000 acres with dozens of recreational activities available
  • Cabins and free-form camping available

Mills Norrie State Park is really the sumtotal of two parks: Margaret Lewis Norrie and Ogden & Ruth Livingston Mills State Parks, joined together by the Hudson River. Located in lower New York, it combines the rural beauty of the state with easy access to and from the city. Camping at Mills Norrie State Park ensures access to a range of activities, from hiking to canoeing to bird watching.

The park is open from May 1st to October 25th, and you can reserve either a campsite (46 available) or a cabin (10 available), containing four sleeping bunks, for a minimum two-night stay. Cabins go for $85 a night, and tent site pricing ranges from $18-$22. The campgrounds also feature a golf course, hiking trails, access to the on-site marina, and picnic areas. You must be 18 and over to rent a campsite or cabin. Dogs are permitted in the camping area, and quiet hours are observed from 10pm to 7am. A central comfort station features showers and toilets. As with all outdoor recreation area, you are asked to keep the premise clean and bring out with you anything you brought in!

How to Get There

Relaxing and peaceful

We camped Fri-Mon. Friday and Saturday nights were crowded, and the tent sites were moderately separated but a bit too close and noisy. Sunday night was great, we pretty much had the place to ourselves and it was darker and quieter, better to enjoy the full moon. Facilities seem luxurious, with 24-hour bathrooms with showers, and abundant water sources shared by approx. 6+ sites each. Hunt your own firewood, or buy a composite wood bundle from the registration office. We hunted our own, and spent about 5 hours per day, hiking on the moderate trails surrounding the area (with a few short, steep climbs). Make sure to take plenty of water if you go walking/hiking, as there are slim to no water sources along the trails (there are a few bathroom spots though). Wildlife consists of squirrels, deer, chipmunks, a snake, and some spiders. No raccoons, and virtually no biting insects if you remain covered. Quite a blissful weekend.
