DEC expands campground openings; still not accepting new reservations

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced that additional DEC campgrounds in the Adirondack and Catskill parks will open on July 1 to existing reservation holders for the 2020 season. To maintain social distancing and reduce the density of facilities and protect visitors, DEC is not accepting additional reservations or walk-in camping for the 2020 season at this time. Only existing reservations for all DEC campgrounds will be honored. Please visit DEC’s website for the latest updates on DEC campgrounds and information about each facility.

    last week I called and they said campgrounds are not open for day use. If you are planning on going for the day, make sure you call and see if this is true. Sometimes the state just changes their mind. If there is a trail access in the campground, make sure it is ok to enter before you drive over.
