Storm King is only open from April through November and the first two weekends in December with limited amenities.
There are two different packages that visitors can book through Coach USA that will provide transportation to Storm King from Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City. One of the trips includes visiting Woodbury Common Premium Outlets after Storm King and the other is a full day at Storm King with a later start time.
There are trams for families with young children and those with mobility issues that can help with getting around the grounds.
Storm King Café is the onsite eatery that serves salads, sandwiches, snack food and some seasonal specials that are made from local ingredients and kids meals. The café can provide box lunches for visitors who wish to picnic outside if they order ahead for a group of 15 or more. This is perfect for field trips. There bakery items are mostly dessert and there is wine and beer selections available daily as well.
