The times I spent with my children in nature are among my most meaningful memories—and I hope theirs.
Site Update: Listing of Campsites
I haven't posted anything recently because I've been working on another feature for this site: a list of campgrounds with detailed information about their attractions and amenities. Basically, I'll be listing all the places we've been, which are all within about a 4-hour drive or less from the city. (Well, all except the two places we stayed while in Europe.) For now, the Places We've Been page lists everywhere we've camped since Tree Kid was born (Fall 1999). As I add and update the campsite detail pages, the place links will go there instead of directly to the external sites. The Places to Camp Near NYC link goes to a summary view of campsites with the distance and drive time, from there just click on the place name to go to the detail page.
I've got two done—Clarence Fahnestock State Park and Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park. I hope when it's more complete that this will be a useful resource for NYC families who are looking for places to go.
