Summer Stuff: Camping

For this week’s Summer Stuff segment, Kristin Hostetter, Gear Editor for Backpacker magazine, tells us the best places to camp in the New York area, gives a rundown of essential gear and wilderness skills for campers and backpackers, and shares ideas about what foods to bring, what to cook, and how to camp—and backpack—most comfortably.

On Friday and Saturday nights in July and August, families can camp with the Urban Park Rangers in city parks! Find out more information about Urban Family Camping here.
