As many people know, the American Alpine Club (AAC) has bought land in the New River Gorge and the Gunks with the mission to establish new campgrounds. The AAC is partnering with the Access Fund and the New River Alliance of Climbers (NRAC) for this undertaking; once complete the campground will have up to 60 campsites, a pavilion, shower house and manager quarters. The whole process will take some time, and getting the basic infrastructure in place is the next step. With the closing of Roger’s, a once staple camping spot for the traveling climber to set up shop, the AAC’s campground has appeared at the perfect time. The image above is a map of the campground from Levi Rose who helped with mapping the area. For additional information, check out Levi’s web site here or check for news updates with the AAC.
