Does anyone know nice group tent sites that can accomodate 120 people near NY (or in NJ, PA, CT)? I am trying to organize my church trip. Thanks.

I don't know one specifically, but try the state parks, most of them have group sites. I think Mahlon Dickerson, Morris County (NJ) Park, has a group site as well, with the layout I think it may be bigger then some the state park group sites.
with the layout of some of the state parks, you could get a cluster of sites if they don't have a group site, and set-up as a group area...try Spruce Run (NJ) as an option for that type of set-up.

Are you familiar with Lake George in the Adirondacks? Silver Bay YMCA is on the northwestern shore of the lake. They host many church groups and have all kinds of activities on their 700 acre campus. Go to their website at silverbay.org. They have not hosted such a large tenting group lately but I am sure you can make arrangements. There are cabins,cottages,no frills rooms,hotel,tent platforms in the woods hiking trails, beaches, boats,tennis courts,chapel, meeting rooms of all sizes etc. They serve 3 meals a day at the dining hall. Special clergy and military discounts. It is a beautiful area in the small town of Hague NY. There is internet but there are no tvs or video games. Really a great atmosphere.

You might try Ives Run in Tioga, PA...just south of the NY border. It's a Corps of Engineer campground. I've only stayed there in my 5th wheel, but I did see a ton of tent campers around. The last time I was there they had a large motorcycle rally going on, so I assume they have sufficient tent sites. Give them a call.

Have fun!!!
