Back to the idea of a private owner allowing public access:

Yes, it's been done before and it's actually awesome i.e. BREIA. But I'm not sure BREIA makes any money except through grants, so I'm...

I have not, but I don't want to drift the thread too much. And perhaps that's a little extreme for my paddling pace LOL.

No, but what I'm saying is, you are most certainly going to give up that protection with a private individual over a state wilderness.

This property is a prime wilderness paddling connector, as...

While I love BREIA and their facilities, they are not immune to issues with the public. One of their huts was burned down a few years back. They rebuilt, but if that was on state land John Q....

Your first post was VERY myopic - "MY MONEY being spent to turn it into a mud pit". Kind of severe, don't ya think? Sounds like Fox News to me.

Many Thanks!

Another thread has reminded me to thank all those involved in keeping our forest preserve clean and free for all to use!

Those who build and adopt lean tos, contribute to trail crews and/or help...

So umm do you bushwhack, ski and climb on Jack Ma's land, or on the forest preserve?

It's really odd to me so many people on this forum voice this opinion, like you do, but then don't think twice...

They all have the same problems.

Mostly poop, litter and erosion. Invasive species are problems everywhere.

Again, LOL!

Apparently you haven't really been to many wilderness areas in the Adirondacks and seen all the junk left over from 70 years prior when they were owned by private individuals.

Lol. Didn't they want to put a hotel and cabins on the lake before the state bought it?

This sounds like a reasonable compromise to me. I have zero interest in the buildings. If the cabin has real historic or educational value it should be packed up and moved to the museum.

But I did once have a bobcat stalk my campsite. It walked around the perimeter of the fire but didn't get any closer than 10-15 yards.

No problem - I'm not a fisherman, so I can't speak to what ponds have fish. I know some are stocked, and I believe some have self-sufficient populations. DEC site may have more info there.
