Last year was my first time at NEAF, and I had a blast! I couldn't find a convenient place to hang my hat, however, and I wanted to get a jump on booking my stay this year.
I like camping- keeps the cost down for me. Primitive is great, I'm a park Ranger: I've got the equipment and experience to be outdoors in April and be comfortable. Last year I stayed in Promised Land State Park in PA...which was beautiful and only ran me around $12 a night...but still more of a drive than I wanted to make back and forth for 2 days.
I'm not asking for any closely guarded secrets, but if anyone knows of any camping areas closer to Suffern that aren't comparatively expensive, I'd appreciate your direction.
Thanks very much, hope to see you there!
