This site is one of a handful of primitive sites abutting the Salmon River Reservoir in the Hall Island State Forest in Redfield, NY. All sites are first come, first serve, and free of charge. We were able to have a fire.
There’s not much to them, no facilities or running water, and certainly not as scenic as going up to the Adirondacks; but seemed a decent option for a quick weekend trip. The draw for my friends and I at the time was a jump off the nearby Redfield bridge and swim in the Salmon River. Was also popular for fishing enthusiasts.
It’s a short drive into town and to the local convenience store, which “conveniently” enough, offers shower facilities and bathrooms for a fee. However, I don’t recall being terribly impressed. I’m not likely to return, but it’s an option if you want a simple camp night with friends.
