Camping around NYC?

Hello fellow backpackers,

A silent member in this group, I hope to be able to join a hike one day soon.

In the meantime, I have a camping question for the group: I would like to go camping this coming Saturday. I'm looking for a place reachable via public transportation (MTA preferred, doesn't have to be too far out there). Would ideally be great to have some privacy, or at least not camp in a row of tents. A short hike the following day would be nice, but not a must, mostly just looking to get out to nature and relax, can easily spend the following day laying around in the sun.

Can anyone recommend a spot?
Someone recommended Twin Island Preserve in Pelham Bay park, or Bear Mountain, but I couldn't find easy information online - any recommendations about these, or other sites?

Thank you very much!!

R.

Gateway National Recreation Area.

They have two campsites open right now I think.

Brooklyn and Sandy Hook, NJ.
