Group of 60 people camping at Giant Ledge

Unread post by dave »

Town of Shandaken in Ulster County

Illegal Camping:
On June 21 at 3 p.m., Forest Rangers were notified that approximately 60 people were setting up camp on Giant's Ledge in the Slide Mountain Wilderness Area. Rangers Horn, Martin, and Rusher made contact with the large group from New Jersey and educated the trip leaders on wilderness regulations. While primitive camping is allowed, campsites must be at least 150 feet from the nearest road, trail, or body of water. Camping for more than three nights or in groups of 10 or more requires a permit. Rangers issued tickets to the trip leaders for exceeding the permitted group size and provided information about several legal camping site options.
