New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced that effective immediately, DEC is terminating the use of the electric supply devices (hookups) at Ausable Point Public Campground for the 2006 camping season.

DEC has determined that the electrical hook-ups no longer comply with the current electric codes and thus finds it necessary to discontinue use of the electrical hook-ups at the 43 sites so equipped. This is being done to secure the safety of visitors to the campground.

The electric service to these 43 sites is nearly 40 years old and no longer provides adequate, safe power to campers. The available 15 amp services are insufficient to meet the demand of today's camper trailers and recreational vehicles. The Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan clearly states that: "All campgrounds within the Adirondack Forest Preserve will be of a rustic nature without utility hookups and other elaborate facilities customarily provided by private campgrounds. Each individual campsite will retain the natural character of the surrounding forest and will contain only a fireplace or fire ring, a space for a single vehicle with trailer if needed, picnic table and appropriate sites."
