Group campsites/cabins can provide a unique camping experience. Often set in a remote area within the park, group camping areas can be the perfect location for your family reunion or group outing. Sites are primitive but are usually discounted compared to the cost of a standard site.

Group camps range in accommodations from 20 to 100 people. In most cases, you will need to contact the park for reservations and information.

Deciding where to camp? Our parks offer a remarkable diversity of natural settings including views of the mighty Hudson River in the Taconic and Palisades regions; cascading waterfalls, deep gorges and amazing canyons in the Finger Lakes, Genesee and Niagara regions; lake-side views in the Central Saratoga and Thousand Island regions, and vast wilderness in Allegany.

"The bike trail was so quiet and beautiful with the sun shining through the canopy of trees... we rode the trail every morning." - Steve K, Chenango Valley State Park

"We stayed at Taughannock Falls State Park and explored this beautiful area of the state with a day trip to Watkins Glen State Park; this was our first trip to these state parks but not our last—we love them!" - Wendy W., Taughannock Falls
