NEW YORK State Camping/Cabin Reservation System
The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) operates all State campgrounds within the Adirondack
and Catskill Forest Preserves. The Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation (OPRHP) operates
all other camping areas and cabins in New York’s state parks. Through the New York State Camping/Cabin
Reservation System, you may reserve space, which will guarantee accommodations at any state camping
area. Services, programs and facilities vary among campgrounds. Contact the park for current schedules.
While reservations are not required, they are highly recommended. You can also rent any available campsite
or cabin as a “walkup” on a first-come, first-serve basis when you arrive ready to camp.
Fees, policies and Call Center hours are subject to change at any time.
