Camping in Minnewaska State Park

Peter and I camped in Minnewaska State Park this weekend.

We splashed around in this amazing waterfall.



Picked blueberries to our hearts content and brought bags of them back home too! The trail we hiked along was lined with them -- much like Harriman.


No camping allowed in the park, but we were quiet and broke down the tent at first light. It was completely deserted at night! Not a soul! Almost eerie, but definitely amazing.


The water is crystal clear -- the lake has a limestone bedrock so the pH is not suitable for fish and other animals.

It would be amazing to go back in the fall when the leaves are turning!
