Camping near Bethel NY?

I have a ticket for a concert in August at Bethel Woods Center (NY) and would love to camp in the area. The most likely place is full. I would even camp for the night in a parking lot nearby. Has anyone been to Bethel Woods? Do you have any ideas for camping nearby? Happy to boondock. Thanks!

Thanks for starting this thread, Kim. Plenty of nearby campgrounds . . . availability TBD in the middle of summer:

Satellite view: https://www.google.com/maps/search/c...3!2d41.6971878

I have never been there . . . looks like a great venue IMO . . . home turf of Yasgur's Farm and Woodstock 1969 . . . missed that one by a whisker . . .

https://www.bethelwoodscenter.org/

The Fall line-up is blank at this time, except for Gordon Lightfoot on December 11th!

It is a beautiful and historic venue. We live not very far away so we don't have to camp.

They have RV parking on site, but you can't stay overnight.

Yasgur Road I think only does camping for their annual event. Happy Days is next closest. Anything further and you may find yourself fighting heavy traffic to get out. It also lets you exit out the "back door".

How bad can the traffic be? Several years ago at the CSN&Y concert (the biggest they'd had) it took me 2 hours to get from the parking lot, down a one mile road to the main road.

Thank you very much Peter and Wayne&Sam. I had a feeling that the traffic could be horrendous. This might not be the right event to take my AS to. But I will look into the links you shared Peter. I appreciate your research!

How about Gordon Lightfoot on December 11th, camping in the [winterized] aluminum tent?



A great Gordon Lightfoot documentary is linked in the OTRA II thread here. [hot link]

The Fall schedule is bound to fill up too . . . worth checking often IMO.

Have a good weekend.

Amazingly the 12/11 GL show is almost sold out.

https://www.ticketmaster.com/gordon-...00567CCFF371CB

They added a show on the next day a Sunday FYI.

Also new shows are being added, including Shawn Colvin on 5/1/22:

https://www.ticketmaster.com/shawn-c...005752BD03589B

Some of her fine tunes are already on the two OTRA music threads, and Bob Cross's Guitar Music thread.

The OTRA threads are the best and I will check out Bob Cross's. Have you thought about going to Bethel Woods yourself? Sounds like a beautiful venue, little less so in winter perhaps depending on your feelings about winter. We have a couple of inches on the ground this morning and I am not thrilled!

Yes . . . have family fairly close to Bethel Woods . . . have camped with the trailer in their driveway before. Waiting for the world to sort itself out a bit more . . . including some personal health issues. Not wild about seeing any performer indoors at this time.

Summer gigs outside would be the first preference.

Happy Trails,

Peter

Well I hope things get sorted out before too much longer. I was aware that there are some health issues for you and I'm sorry. The last thing you need is to put yourself among a throng of rabid Gordon Lightfoot fans! I have a few forums that I am a part of and they sure have made this time easier, this one being one of them, and you're an important part of making it flow. Have a nice weekend!
