I'm on Long Island and it's about 2.5 - 3 hours to get to Mohonk Preserve. I'm looking to check in on a Thursday or Friday in mid May and leave Sunday or Monday.
I'd like to check in Thursday or Friday afternoon/evening and go hiking at the preserve at least one day. My group would consist of 5-10 people ages 36-50 who are all active individuals.
Can you suggest any full hookup campgrounds that are near the park to the south or east of the park? Within 30-40 minutes preferably. While not mandatory, if the park also had cabins and/or tent sections then that would be a bonus.
A few years ago a friend bought us some metal telescoping sticks for cooking over a fire. They collapsed to about 8" and extended up to about 2' and they had two prongs on the end to secure your food better. No one has seen them in years and we have no idea where they went.
I'm looking for good sticks to use now. Should I look into those cheap wooden ones that usually come in a S'mores kit? I found a pack of 100 sticks for about $30. Are the metal telescoping ones better? One prong? Two prongs?
These would basically only be used for marshmallows and hot dogs. Perhaps kebabs later on.
