Join us for the holiday weekend in a beautiful region of New York State. We will be camping in between the Shawangunks and Catskills, where a 30 minute drive or less can take us to many attractions! A 30 minute drive south will take you to Minnewaska State Park or Mohonk Preserve. A slightly longer drive north will have you in the southern section of Catskill Park. There will be plenty of outstanding hiking choices in these areas, plus paddling on Roundout Creek. Try mountain biking in Lipman Park, or on the easy carriage roads in Minnewaska. Hybrid or road bicycling is available on local Rail Trails. There is also great fishing close by in Ashokan Reservoir, Onteora Lake, Sturgeon Pool, and more. Swimming may be possible in Lake Minnewaska & Lake Awosting, plus several swimming holes. Opus 40 is a 6.5-acre stone-sculpture park in an abandoned quarry with trails and a museum featuring vintage tools. Visit the quaint towns of Stone Ridge, Woodstock or New Paltz.
