Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The long list of possible state park closures includes a dozen Central and Upstate New York campgrounds. Many of those parks don’t expect to open this summer due to budget cuts, so they are refunding money to people who already have reservations.

This is in addition to the 55 state parks throughout New York that could also be closed as the result of the $8 billion budget deficit. The governor expects the move to save about $6 million.

Dan Keefe, from State Parks, says there is still a chance those parks could be open this summer if lawmakers restore funding, but they wanted to get the word out now.

Campsites that will not be opening for the 2010 are:

Central Region:

  • Hunt’s Pond State Park
  • Oquaga Creek State Park
  • Pixley Falls State Park

Finger Lakes Region:

  • Newtown Battlefield State Park

Saratoga Region:

  • Max V. Shaul State Park

Taconic Region:

  • Taconic State Park – Rudd Pond Area

Thousand Islands Region:

  • Canoe Point State Park
  • Cedar Island State Park
  • Eel Weir State Park
  • Keewaydin State Park
  • Macomb Reservation State Park
  • Mary Island State Park

Emails sent to customers who had already made reservations said that reservations have been cancelled and refunds issued. Those who paid by check, will get their money in the form of a check. Those who paid by credit card, will see their refund as a credit on their next statement.
