Here are 5 FREE campsites within a short trip from Central New York.

Camping is not for everyone. Some love being in the great outdoors, hiking and campfires. Others fear the bathrooms can be nasty. Showers don't always have hot water and if it rains it can be a nightmare. If you are in favor of camping I wonder how you feel about Primitive Camping.

According to Reserve America, primitive camping is less formal than typical camping, if you can imagine that. No reservations, no bathrooms and no money needed. It's FREE! You will probably have to venture out to a more remote location but if literally being in the middle of the woods this could be for you.
