Governor Cuomo, along with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced this week that the campgrounds in the Catskills and the Adirondacks are officially open for the season.

According to a statement from the Governor's Office, this is what Governor Cuomo had to say about it:

“From hiking to fishing, New York’s campgrounds offer some of the best outdoor recreational opportunities in the world. 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 across the state. The sites are available on a first come, first served basis and cost anywhere from $18 to $28 per night. Start planning your camping trip or outdoor adventure now as most of the campgrounds will be open through Labor Day.
