Even though the governor of NYS has proclaimed that SP Campgrounds will be open I still can't make a new reservation this Year!

I wonder what would happen if you made a confirmed reservation for next year, and then tried to change it to this year... [emoticon]


May or may not "work," but one thing would be certain: ReserveAmerica would ding you for your reservation fee and for a cancellation fee.

No doubt they will. PA was canceling your entire reservation if the arrival fell on a date prior to their reopening, even if the end date fell after the reopening with all fees waived. When they announced updated dates I was able to cancel myself and re reserve the site starting on the opening date last weekend (22nd which we had reservations starting the 17th) for which I was dinged $16 by RA for canceling along with another $8 for the new reservation but at least we salvaged 1/2 of a long planned trip we have done for over 10 years.

I don't see anything particularly unacceptable in those conditions either, and we will be happily using our 4th of July and Labor Day week NYSP reservations. While hiking, I think I would just lower my mask when alone, pulling it up as others approached. That would certainly fall within the state rule on masking when social distancing may be difficult.

Exactly. People should stop overreacting and follow the simple requests to help stop the spread of COVID-19, or just stay home.[emoticon]

From the NYSP web site:

"COVID-19 UPDATE:"

"Existing 2020 reservations: New York State Park campsites, cabins and cottages will open to those with existing reservations beginning June 1st. You must already have a reservation to camp."

"New 2020 reservations: A limited number of full-service cottages and full hook-up RV sites will be available to reserve starting June 1st. New reservations for full-service cottages and RV sites are expected to fill quickly. Reservations can be made in advance by calling toll free 1-800-456-CAMP or http://newyorkstateparks.reserveamerica.com. The availability of additional new reservations will be reviewed as the summer proceeds."

Never thought I could go to a campground and see a three ring circus.....

You're kidding, right?

Sitting in any typical campsite you can watch:

(1) arrivals ('nuf said)

(2) the guy trying to get green wood to burn

(3) the guy trying to split firewood with a hatchet

etc.

The entertainment is half the fun of camping [emoticon]

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!

I would expect bathrooms to be closed and be replaced by Porta Pottys. You can't shower and shave with a mask on.

Not sure about the Parks and Rec campsites but the DC operated campgrounds will not be opened before June 7 at the earliest.
