UPDATE — September 26, 2012
The Samuel F. Pryor III Shawangunk Gateway Campground is, at long last, approaching its building phase.
After much good work by our partner Jim Hall, Executive Director of the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, his team is poised to obtain permits and begin seeking bids for the work. The request for bids should go out sometime in late October. If all goes well, we will begin the actual work when the weather improves in the Spring.
Once open, 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.
The campground, as currently planned, will include approximately 50 drive-in and walk-in campsites, a central gathering area with cooking and shower facilities, and an indoor space where visitors can gather during rainy weather.
Further updates will be posted on this page and on americanalpineclub.org/news.
