This is a great holiday idea for the person or family in your life that loves to go camping in the Catskills and Adirondack parks. Gift cards are on sale now through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). There are hundreds of campsites in the Adirondacks and the Catskills and I was fortunate to utilize the old Frontier Town site one summer. 'We had a blast, but I know so many families that camp multiple times throughout the summer. We are surrounded by the most beautiful mountains and campsites and if you know someone who loves to camp, gift cards are on sale now just in time for the holidays.

According to News 10 ABC, there are gift cards on sale now for services and camping stays at all DEC campgrounds and you can purchase them online. If you order the gift card online, they are mailed to you as physical gift cards to whomever you buy them for. The DEC allows you to also print the gift certificates at home. These make a great gift for the camper in your life.

The gift cards can be used for stays and services at all DEC properties including fifty-two campgrounds and five day-use areas throughout the Catskill and Adirondack forest preserves. To get more information on schedules and to get your gift cards, click HERE.
