Obviously, I would go to the place with not rats.

Heh... you missed the point Tongue

That may be true, but you are eating rat turds.

I would be interested depending on price and location.

There is a paid campsite called creek view. Never stayed there but I did hear good things about it.

http://www.creekviewcampsite.com/

MUA is nasty. Slime is decent, and I usually stayed there so I can get to climbing next day fast.

ok ok ok...

so the next time I stay up till 2 am after a long day of climbing and
engaging in the various activities that so often accompany a good climbing day...
I will wait till the next day to post info about my super dope
land that I feel I want to invite super cool folks to for camping.

(NO JERK OFFS ALLOWED!!!!!!)


if you need a place to crash this weekend, and your not a jerk off... give me a call or send a text.

I'll be around friday night and

I'll be at the cliffs all day on saturday... until late probably...

My pbone gets reception there... unless I'm at lost city.


the house will be open for those necessary bathroom visits and Nalgene bottle refills.

There is a community sun porch where wi-fi can be picked up.

for now I'll go on donation

call first for sure and I'll give you the address so you can google directions.

it should be a good weekend of climbing!!!

have a safe drive!!!

Out of curiosity, what is the situation with your neighbors? There have been other attempts at private climbers' campgrounds that were forced to cease by the surrounding landowners.

I haven't been to the Gunks since probably 1997. Are Camp Slime and the MUA still the only options there?! Seriously?! If so, hell yes, I'd stay at this new place. But isn't there an AAC ranch or some such?

Not yet, despite being talked about for the last 20 years (initially as an AMC project, then AAC).

It is, IMO, downright weird that such a storied and amazing place STILL has so few decent camping options. Surely, not every person in the hoard of climbers that descends upon the Gunks every weekend camps in Slime or the MUA. I'm sure some stay in friends' houses and yards. Where does that leave the rest of them?

And the reason for that (actually more like 10 years) and also the failure of the Gristmill and a half dozen other less known local proposals to materialise is the local zoning and permitting process. That is why this new one is so laughable - obvioisly she has no clue of history or whats involved.

I've never stayed at them, so I can't tell you what the names are, but there are campgrounds in the area. I know folks who would rather stay at a pay campground than at MUA or Slime, and they often do. I gather they are about 30min away from the crag.

So options are there, just not right there.

The Hostel is pretty nice digs (http://www.newpaltzhostel.com/index.html). Last I heard, though, it was up for sale.

Hrmph, sounds like New Paltz and Fayetteville have more in common than just world-class stone.

Its actually mostly Gardner that is the culprit - but similar mentality I am sure.

All true. Unfortunately they are rather expensive for a camp site, particularly for climbers used to free. The Jellystone (iirc) Family Campground is on the order of $35 / night.

I know one guy who stays at a place where it is about $10 per person (or maybe it's per tent) that is about 35 min away. He likes having showers. I just jump in at Split Rock.

I could be totally wrong about that price though, but that's what I remember being told.

It sounds like you're talking about the Gristmill. If so, see OldEric's posts above.

no, it's a place that Bill stays at; it's an actual campground. I'm pretty sure he's stayed at this place after the gristmist closed (which I'm aware of since a bunch of people I know who used to stay there all of a sudden started camping at Slime when it closed).

Some googling revealed http://www.creekviewcampsite.com/
which is $10/person/night and is in Rosendale. In the area, but not really convenient.
