Not sure if this is the right forum but ... I have some state parks that have campgrounds that are ~100 miles of me (Syracuse). I know at some point in the fall they "close" for the season, but are left ungated. Some people still camp but with no water,etc. Does anyone know when they "close" and admission is free? I would like to check out these parks to get an idea as to whether or not I would like to camp there. My favorite place to go camping is Eighth Lake state park near Raquette Lake. Ideally, I could find something with similar spacing and privacy on the campsites. Thanks!
