Any recommendations for a camping site in the NYC area with decent bathroom facilities?

OK, so some may say it defeats the purpose of spending the time in the outdoors, but I just don't want to be left with an outhouse. I've gone camping many times in the Catskills and Bear Mountain years ago when I was much younger, and I remember there being bathrooms with cement walls, porcelain sinks, and multiple shower stalls.

Any suggestions, please? Thanks!

Delware Water Gap National Recreation Area has camp-grounds like that.
Here is a map of the dingman campground. You can call ahead and reserve a camp-site number. Don't get a site too close to the bath-fan or the bathroom.

There are all sorts of other cool stuff to do the Delaware Water Gap area too.

I've been to North South Lake in the catskills several times and the bathrooms are fine: hot and cold running water, doors, lights -- the whole 9 yards.

Any commercial campsite like a KOA will have proper bathroom facilities, although you may need to put in quarters to run the shower.
