Gunks Campground

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 Shawangunk climbing area. 

The Palisades Interstate Park Commission completed construction of the campground in 2014 and turned it over to the Mohonk Preserve and the American Alpine Club to operate the facility in partnership.
