The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God—I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.
New York state parks are offering a $5 per night discount off camping reservations through June 26th. We may not have many national parks here in the east, but New York has some of the nation’s largest and most beautiful state sarks.
New York State is blessed with 178 state parks from the Finger Lakes to Long Island that offer a wide range of scenery and experiences. Harriman State Park, just 40 miles northeast of the city, is the second largest park in the state with over 200 miles of hiking trails, three beaches, and 31 lakes and reservoirs. Harriman offers two campgrounds—the Sebago Cabins open April 20 and Beaver Pond campground opens April 27. Beginning this weekend, camping is open at Clarence Fahnestock State Park, roughly 60 miles north of the city.
