Even though fall will officially arrive on September 23, 2023, there are still 21 campsites open around New York at State Parks. Campers can now secure a last-minute reservation at any of the 21 DEC campgrounds. While reservations will be required, people can now book one up until 5 pm on the day they plan to arrive. One-night bookings are also available for the 2023 season at any DEC campground. DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said,

DEC is excited to make some changes and updates to this year's reservation window for DEC campgrounds. While many campers book weeks or months in advance, there continues to be a high demand for last-minute bookings. Adding same-day reservations will allow our customers to check availability and book a reservation on their way to a campground. An additional 17 hours to book a camping stay will ensure sites are available before arriving and prevent anyone from arriving to a full campground.
