Governor Andrew Cuomo announced May 20 that New York State Department of Environmental Conservation operated campgrounds in the Adirondack and Catskill Parks are now open for the summer camping season. The DEC operates 52 campgrounds and six day-use areas in the Adirondack and Catskill Forest Preserves open through Labor Day, with some facilities remaining open during fall foliage and hunting season. Sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis and range from $18-$28 a night. For more information on DEC-operated campgrounds, including a list of campgrounds and their schedules, visit DEC’s website at www.dec.ny.gov and go to the Camping link under the Outdoors Recreation section, or call DEC’s Bureau of Recreation at 518-457-2500.
