We the undersigned are pleading to stop the closing of the Hudson River Island Park. This park is one of only two public camping spots listed by the NYS Department of Parks, accessible to boaters, along the 315 miles of the Hudson River. For Greene and Columbia County boaters who frequently visit the island it has become a home away from home; an oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of the day to day. Those who visit from outside the area revel in its beauty and truly appreciate having a place to come to while enjoying one of NYS's most recognized backdrops, the Hudson River. Please do not take away this retreat which has held such a special place in so many peoples hearts.
