State Campgrounds Have Plenty of Vacancy

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (State Parks) remind New Yorkers to get out doors and visit any of the state’s many campgrounds and parks. Campgrounds are open through late summer, and many remain open in the early fall.

The state boasts 119 public campgrounds throughout the Catskills, Southern Tier, Hudson and Mohawk valleys, Finger Lakes, Adirondacks, Western New York, Thousand Islands and Long Island.

Attendance at state park and DEC campgrounds and day-use areas is up almost eight percent so far this season, and 2018 looks to be a record-breaking year.

Among the area campgrounds that have plenty of vacancy throughout the remainder of the summer are Bear Spring Mountain, Beaver Kill, Oquaga Creek, and Max V. Shaul.
