Created in partnership by the American Alpine Club, Mohonk Preserve, New York State OPRHP, and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, the Samuel F. Pryor III Shawangunk Gateway Campground opened in 2015 as the first new public campground in New York State in over thirty years, and is a major addition to the Shawangunk Mountains region's lodging facilities. The campground is dedicated to the memory of Sam Pryor, an extraordinary conservationist whose life's work included bringing this project to fruition.
The American Alpine Club and Mohonk Preserve are cooperatively managing the tent-camping only campground. Campground amenities include a pavilion and cooking area, bathhouse and restroom facilities, and circulation trails. There are 24 drive-in spots (one vehicle per site) and 26 walk-in spots. All sites accommodate up to two tents (and four people) per pad. Recreational vehicles are not permitted.
Campers may access Mohonk Preserve, New York State's largest nonprofit nature preserve, via a connector trail to the Preserve's Visitor Center and historic carriage road network for world-class rock climbing and bouldering, hiking, mountain biking, trail running, and nature exploration. Memberships and day-use passes are available at the Visitor Center and all Preserve trailheads.
The campground is open April through November, weather permitting. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
