    Does anyone know if an RV can be brought to parents weekend or to the football games? Are there any RV or camping facilities close to KP? Thanks.

    The only time I've ever heard of RV's being allowed on campus was for graduation and even that was up in the air at times. For Parents Weekend I would think they wouldn't be allowed on campus. As for an RV park I don't know of any near campus.

    I know in previous years there have been lots of RV's on campus during Homecoming weekend. They were at times parked down by the waterfront.

    Now, that was mostly pre 2001 so not sure if things have changed much since then. Your best bet would be to call the Academy directly and ask them.

    as a parent of 2014, I saw a RV parked at KP during Parent's Weekend. No sewer, just water and electricity. You have to use their bath house on the waterfront.

    Thanks to everyone for responding. It sounds like some folks are allowed to park on the campus for certain events, however I have been declined permision to bring the motorhome for parent weekend or football games. I may not be in contact with the correct person. If anyone knows who the proper person is to contact at the academy regarding permission to park a motor home that would be helpful. Looks like for now I better reserve a hotel as I have heard they fill up fast for parent weekend.

    That is if they will allow RV's to park on campus next year. There was some discussion this year that it will be discontinued next year.

    Also, don't count on water hookups. Electricity for sure, but not water. You can fill your tanks.

    My research has revealed no place to park an RV this year on campus. So i did some searching online for RV/Motorhome parks off campus and only found two places that were extremely north east on Long Island which would probably make it impractcal. Does anyone know of anyplace in Long Island to park a motor home for the fall that I could utilize when I attend games at KP or when I am just visiting?

    There are no such animals around the campus, and KP will not allow RV's to be parked there.

    Your only option would be to park out on LI or go to CT, PA and drive in for the games. Probably would be cheaper to get a hotel.
