New owner and camping in new england

Next week we pick up our new jay feather 25BH! Iím very excited about it as we have 3 little boys, and I think the bunks will be great for them. We previous had a Starcraft 16rb hybrid, but needed something with a little more space.
Any suggestions on places to camp in New England or upstate ny with hook-up? Anything near lake/ocean? We are from western mass, and dry camp every year at Nickerson state park on the cape, which we love. We have a Honda generator for the battery. Thanks for any suggestions!

Congratulations on your new Jay Feather and welcome to the forum.

Being an experienced TT owner, you are probably well aware of the importance of a thorough Pre Delivery Inspection. If not, you'll find information on this site.

Sorry, but I have nothing regarding camping locations in that part of the country.

Congratulations and welcome from the other side of the state.

We really like Chewonki Campground in Wiscasset, ME, but they don't have much for kids. Bay View Campground in Bourne, MA is another option and they appear to have a lot of stuff to keep kids occupied.

Enjoy your new Jayco. Lakeside Camping campground in Island Pond (Brighton) VT is a nice campground in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

We have a 17 25bh. Great family floor plan for our family. We really enjoy rip van winkle in Saugerties as well as jellystone park (going in 2 weeks for a weeks stay) in gardiner, also known as lazy river. Jellystone is nice as there are many sites that back up to the walkill river. Both are in upstate ny.

all your kids need is water and a beach.. And a boat. Rentals available. Tubing is fun for the kids

Colonial Mast Campground Naples ME
Kokatosi Campground Raymond ME

Both in the Sebago Lake area.

Within 45 minutes of the White Mtns and the ocean

We don't camp much however in the area as we live there and the house on the lake does fine!
