I'm still bitter they closed camp slime...

I'm coming up this weekend and the campground is full, hostel is full, cheap hotels are full ... where do people stay? Anyone have a lawn that will let 4 people crash? We will be gone early in the morning and back late in the evening, just need a place to sleep and of course we can give you cash.

There are two MUA's about a half hour away - Hemlock Ridge and the Shawangunk Rudge State Forest. I haven't stayed at either but both have been suggested on here. Or you can try:

mountainproject.com/v/climber-...

Or:

mountainproject.com/v/camping-...

There was someone on MP offering camping on his property for free but I can't seem to find the posts.

The best way to find a home to crash at is to take the residents out for drinks and dinner.
The links all say the well known things, but there are alternatives, no bathrooms or other
Comforts,

From one of those links. Where I said
""" Besides the Bed'nBreakfast, options (1on Cragswood Road) .There was a Camp ground on Creeklocks Rd in Rosendale, which works out as near or closer than options on the other side of the ridge. Ask if there is still Climbing allowed at the Water Works area? That place while short would be a great 1st outside top rope experience.

+1 for Creekview campground. $10 gets you a plot with a power hookup and a bathroom/shower/water a stone's throw away. Also, you can have a campfire, unlike the Gunks Campsite. Joe Kain

I have stayed at the hemlock ridge. Not for the faint of heart. Local rednecks turned the place into a shooting range. Summer months are infested with mosquitos. But it is free. I slept in my van and didn't have a problem. Amart

I think I'm going to start doing that now that there isn't another free or cheap alternative.
