Nice. Do you have any knowledge/experience with the campgrounds on the reservoir? Does it get rowdy there or is it generally pretty quiet? The regulations don't provide much alternative, since...

In NY State, you need a self-issuing permit to transport firewood with proof of the point of origin, or proof that it's been treated (kiln dried). It's kind of silly because the permit is something...
