With the downturn in the economy, many American families are changing the way they vacation, and even go on camping or RV trips.
The price of gas and diesel is still near $4.00. That has put a huge dent in vacation plans and is changing the way people are taking their vacations.
Americans are still taking vacations, but they are sticking closer to home.
Many families going on RV and camping trips are choosing not to drive great distances anymore, and for residents of Sullivan County and the Mid-Hudson region, our campgrounds at Morningside Park and Mountaindale Park are the perfect fit in terms of both affordability, distance, and amenities.
The Town of Fallsburg is now running a special for county and Town of Fallsburg residents at our camping facilities. Town of Fallsburg residents can camp the season at one of our parks at a 50% discount while Sullivan County residents will receive a 40% discount.
For years, our campgrounds have traditionally attracted tourists from all over the country, but more and more, Sullivan County residents are discovering the wonderful camping experience close to their homes. Parking their RVs or setting up their campers in our parks is so much cheaper, with the same or even better benefits than campgrounds hundreds of miles away.
