I think you misunderstand. I'm not talking about the folks here. I'm talking about Schlimmer, Welch, various DEC sources, etc.

This always comes down to: "Can people drive in or not?" If the road were closed, that party would not have been there. Or at least would not have been as loud or big in the "wilderness area."

I would guess if one user group (the camp leasers) no longer can use the convenience of the road, another user group (bikers) probably cannot as well. Check with DEC...

Call the folks at the Irondequoit. If it is still the same folks as in 07, they're really nice and helpful. The camping is right on the lake and very nice. IIRC, breakfast the next day was slow,...
