UPDATE — September 16th, 2014.
Construction crews have been working hard this summer, and the Campground is looking beautiful. Much of the infrastructure is close to completion with trails, campsites and roadways all installed, but there is still work to be done on the facilities.
The revised completion date for the construction phase of the Campground is late Fall, and the plan is to open the Campground to the public in the Spring of 2015.
The campground will be operated in a partnership between the American Alpine Club and the Mohonk Preserve.
Since 2006, in partnership with The Mohonk Preserve, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, the American Alpine Club has been working toward the creation of a campground near the popular climbing area, the Shawangunks or "The Gunks" for short.
Location: The campground is a short walk from the Mohonk Preserve Visitor Center near the Trapps and Near Trapps Climbing as well as Uberfall climbing area.
Number of campsites: 50 campsites
Campground acreage: 50 acres
Amenities include: Campground amenities will include an outdoor central gathering and cooking area, bathhouse facilities, and indoor space for visitors to gather during rainy weather.
Expected opening date: Spring 2015
