Expanding on TCD's post.... please be sure you understand the DEC regulations and follow LNT guidelines for primitive backcountry camping. When you depart from a primitive site, other than perhaps some temporary footprints, a day or two later no one should be able to detect that you had camped there. This includes any evidence of having a campfire. Rangers and ECOs are happy to answer any questions directly about specific areas. Just call ahead.
