Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced this week a public-private partnership for a new tent camping service with 45 new sites at four state parks in the Hudson Valley.
Tentrr’s fully outfitted campsites are available to reserve at the Sebago and Silver Mine areas of Harriman State Park in Orange and Rockland Counties; Taconic State Park and Lake Taghkanic State Park in Columbia County; and Mills-Norrie State Park in Dutchess County.
The service provides tents, sleeping accommodations and an array of equipment needed for camping at each site. All items are set up and ready to use upon arrival for added convenience and sites are maintained by Tentrr staff.
State Parks: ‘an invaluable resource to get out of the house’
“In what has been a tremendously difficult year, our State Parks have served as an invaluable resource to get out of the house, stay active and enjoy New York’s natural gems,” Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul said at the unveiling of sites in Harrriman State Park. “These new camping sites represent New York State’s commitment to creating new and fun ways to promote healthy outdoor recreation as well as boost local tourism.”
“The partnership with Tentrr is an opportunity to reach new visitors and encourage more New Yorkers to get outside and be active,” State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid said. “We look forward to kicking off this summer and connecting people with the Hudson Valley’s many outdoor offerings. Not everyone has the equipment or the knowledge to enjoy camping in a state park, and this partnership is a great way to introduce this classic outdoor experience to more New Yorkers.”
’Tentrr makes it easy’
“As a New York City-based company, it is great to partner with our home state supporting its incredible park system across the region,” said Todd King, Vice President of Marketing at Tentrr. “Through Tentrr, we hope New Yorkers and out-of-state visitors alike will explore the incredible natural resources and parks the state has to offer. Tentrr makes it easy to find an amazing site to enjoy the state’s vast landscapes and inspiring scenery.”
Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt joined the lieutenant governor and the state parks commissioner at Harriman State Park for the announcement. “This is a perfect way to give more people the opportunity to experience the outdoor lifestyle in New York and explore all that our beautiful Hudson Valley has to offer while supporting private enterprise, creating new funding streams for our park system and offering expanded tourism opportunities,” he said.
