Rem also that, properly supplied, camping is not highly restricted in the Adk Park. The regs are tighter in the High Peaks area, but with a bear cannister you can walk a short distance from roads, trails, and water and pitch a tent. If you must have amenities, well, it gets a bit tougher. The State Campground system and systematic harassment by the APA just about wiped out privately-run campgrounds, so you may have to travel a bit farther afield (exit 29 or closer to Lake Placid) for one of those. Another option is the hostel in Keene Valley. $25/person/night as of February; but I suspect you will want to call them and reserve a spot for that weekend.
