The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced today that visitors to DEC campgrounds are now able to make reservations as late as one day in advance of their desired stay.


“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,” said DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos.  “With a one-day advanced reservation window, more campers will have the opportunity to explore all of the natural treasures our facilities have to offer, which means more camping, hiking, fishing, and exploring for everyone.”



DEC operates 52 campgrounds and five day-use areas in the Adirondack and Catskill Forest Preserves. The summer camping season runs through Labor Day. To make reservations at any of these facilities, call ReserveAmerica at 1800-456-CAMP (2267) or visit the ReserveAmerica website.
