From the NY State Thruway (I-87).

Take Exit 16, Harriman, Route 17. After the toll booths, bear right, taking the WOODBURY OUTLETS BLVD/RT-32 ramp toward RT17 S/HARRIMAN /CENTRAL VALLEY/US 6 E /BEAR MTN /WEST PT.

Turn LEFT onto NY 32, which becomes NY 17 South. Go through 3 traffic lights in 0.25 mile.

At the fourth light (after passing under an overpass), turn left onto a ramp for US 6 East toward the Bear Mountain Bridge. Follow this for 3.5 miles.

At three miles, bear right, staying on US 6 where Route 293 bears left.

0.5 mile beyond this intersection, a Group Camp Service Road will leave to the right, just after the road crosses a lake on a causeway. This is the camp's access road. Drive through the gate. Our camp is the second left off of the main road, right after the "ETA" mailbox, about one mile in.

From the Palisades Interstate Parkway
Take Palisades Interstate Parkway north to Exit 18 (left-hand exit) for US 6 W toward RT 17/New York State Thruway/I-87.

Follow traffic circle to Long Mountain Parkway/Route 6

Follow Route 6 for 3 miles to Upper Twin Lakes Camp access road on left. Turn left onto this access road, then follow instructions above.

If you pass over the bridge heading towards the Route 293 junction, you have gone too far.
