New York State Department of Environmental Conservation operated campgrounds in the Adirondack and Catskill Parks are now officially open for the summer camping season.

“From hiking to fishing, New York’s campgrounds offer some of the best outdoor recreational opportunities in the world,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “With Memorial Day right around the corner, I encourage residents and visitors alike to plan a trip to one of these campgrounds and experience these beautiful sites for themselves.”

The DEC operates 52 campgrounds and six day use areas in the Adirondacks and Catskills. The summer camping season runs 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 to $28 a night.
