There are a couple of threads here about camping, but most of them are about campsites over this way. We are driving (in a car) to Boston (MA) at the end of the month. We are looking for a couple of campsites somewhere along the way to spread the drive over three days. The first night will definitely be in PA, but the second night could be in NY or CT?
My preferences: somewhere quiet, beautiful, tent-friendly, and maybe a nice bike trail nearby?
Her only requirement: flush toilets, and a shower
I see a ton of state parks along 80/84, but I figure some personal recommendations would be better than me randomly picking one of these places. Thanks all.
oh, just outside NY City are the Gunks… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawangunk_Ridge which are worth a stop… We always camped in someone’s field with all the other climbers, a creek for a shower, but there should be lots in the area that would fit the bill. The cliffs are stunning and there’s a lovely crushed limestone path along the base, not sure about bikes/pets policies but I don’t remember it being particularly restrictive other than climbing activities.
These are all awesome suggestions. Thanks. We had an interesting day, and since ejwme asked, we ended up in the Pocono Lakes for our first night. The have this little campsite called the Comfort Inn (got the last room!). No place to stake my tent, but I didn’t really feel like tenting through in a hurricane. I really had my heart set on Worlds End too. Maybe another time!
