Devil's Tombstone: Not gonna close without a fight

Local officials in Greene County are mounting an effort to get the DEC to reconsider their decision to close the Devil's Tombstone campground. From the Windham Journal:

The campground, located amidst Route 214’s Stony Clove, has been slated for closure along with six others throughout the state due to a massive $8 billion state budget deficit.

“It’s unfortunate that the fiscal shape of New York finds itself that a proposal would be present to close some of our open space, day use and camping areas,” said Hunter Town Supervisor Dennis Lucas. “We have built around economy around our open spaces.”
