Camping immerses you in the peace and tranquility of nature. Here in New York, State Parks and campgrounds abound from glittering Lake George to thundering Niagara Falls. As night blankets the landscape you'll see millions of stars shine over the Adirondack backcountry, smell the campfire on the shores of the Finger Lakes and many more campside moments. Whether you like to rough it, follow historic pathways, or prefer a more pampered camping vacation, you'll find something to love in the Empire State.
Family and private campgrounds inspire the explorer in all of us. Island camping lures the peace seeker to Lake George campgrounds with 400 island campsites among scores of islands. Enjoy peace and serenity on islands that are still just minutes from buzzing Lake George Village, filled with marinas, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. In the Catskills, Hunter Lake is popular with RVers and tenters with lake swimming, canoeing and fishing, while Jerry's 3 River Campground offers canoeing and rafting all along the Delaware River. Family geared campgrounds offer everything from biking and playgrounds to organized events and entertainment. Riverhurst Park a family-owned 45-acre park on the banks of the Allegany River, welcomes your RV, pop-up or tent. Hike several easy trails beneath its towering white pines.
