The dense tall trees provide a shady canopy for the campground. The campground is clean. The bathroom near our camp site was out of order during our visit. If you buy firewood from the campsite,make sure it is seasoned.

I entered this area through Taconic State Park and passed up the path to Bash Bish falls as the Mass entrance looked shorter. It may be shorter, but it is all steps. The New York entrance is a flat train track bed style trail that...More
