Ward Pound Ridge Reservation

The Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, located in Cross River, NY, is our choice for close, easy camping within an hour’s drive of the city.  It provides isolated campsites with the convenience of the small grocery at the bottom of the hill, as well as a shopping complex about a mile away in case you didn’t come as prepared as you may have thought.

They also sell bundles of firewood at the camp office you aren’t a bad-ass like Haynes (pictured above) who likes to chop his own.

Most sites come with a shelter, complete with “indoor” stove facilities. There are miles of hiking trails and several picnic areas throughout the park.

A kit like ours comes in handy for hiking or simply lounging around.
