New York State Public Campgrounds

DEC operates 52 campgrounds located in the Adirondack and Catskill Parks. DEC campgrounds provide a wide variety of experiences, including island camping, tent and trailer camping, boat launching facilities, hiking trails, beaches and day use areas with picnic tables and grills. Fishing licenses are no longer being sold at any of our campground facilities.

Please be careful in the back country at this time of year. The trails are muddy but if you are hiking or camping please do not swing wide on the trails. This hurts the traffic on the trail for the rest of the year. Please just walk through the mud!
