The summer heat in New York City may feel like hell, but luckily there’s a way to beat it — even if you don’t have a car. New York State just released its 2022 Interactive Camping Guide, allowing New Yorkers to find natural oases across the state using camping maps and information.
The digital interface is mobile-friendly and offers insights into 120 state-operated campgrounds. Users can browse photo galleries and maps, scroll through a specific campsite’s facilities and access information on how to book their stay. You can view the guide right here.
The New York State Camping Guide is divided into sections and dedicates an interface to each region across the state, such as the Adirondacks, Saratoga, and the Catskills. Each regional page describes all campgrounds and provides a brief description for each, highlighting amenities, hiking trails, accessibility features, and even if it’s a good spot for fishing or if firewood is available.
At the end you will find a map with all regions and campsites, safe boating tips and flyers for camping passes. Each link leads to a separate website.
