Camping trips are often planned in advance, but if the weather looks particularly ideal you might opt for a last minute outing. The DEC is now making last minute camping reservations easier for outdoor recreationists.
The DEC has announced that for the first time, campers to DEC campgrounds can now make reservations as late as one day in advance.
“Camping is a weather-dependent activity for most people, and we want to ensure that anyone deciding at the last minute to visit one of our amazing campgrounds can reserve a spot,” DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said in a statement.
This upgraded policy includes the DEC’s newest facility, Frontier Town Campground, Equestrian and Day Use Area. That campground’s season starts on June 28th.
The DEC operates 52 campgrounds and five day-use areas in the Adirondack and Catskill Forest Preserves. The summer camping season goes through Labor Day; some facilities remain open longer to accommodate fall foliage and hunting seasons.
