BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Starting June 22nd, camping will be returning to New York State Parks. In order to make that work, the state has put in restrictions to ensure safety.

Campers MUST practice social distancing and bring face coverings to wear. The only way to camp is by reserving a spot here. If you show up without a reservation you will no be camping.

Campsites will also be monitored heavily by parks police. If they notice crowds that are too large, or that are not abiding by proper social distancing, the group can get kicked out without a refunding of their money.

Prior to entering the site all campers must go through a health screening. If failed, they will not be allowed in.

Reservations can be made now.

The New York State Department of Parks declined to comment on this story.
