For the second year in a row, we'll ride from Hudson, NY to Lake Taghkanic State Park in Ancram, camp for one or two nights, and return to Hudson. We'll stop at Churchtown Dairy (https://www.churchtowndairy.org/ ) for lunch en route.
The route is flat to rolling with one long climb on paved roads. Most of the ride is on Route 9 and Route 82. Although the roads are busy arterial routes, the shoulder is wide and the pavement is generally in good condition.
The campground has hot showers. The fee for camping is $19 per night. Reservations should be made in advance by calling the NYS Camping Reservation Service at 1-800-456-2267 or by visiting https://newyorkstateparks.reserveamerica.com/camping/laketaghkanic/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NY&parkId=404
The park is located off the Taconic State Parkway, one mile south of the Hudson/Ancram Exit (Rt. 82).
