    Good car-camping site near Bethel Woods, NY?

    Gotta rent the U-Haul and take the kids to Boston for college. On the way back to NJ, my wife wants to go to see Bob Dylan at Bethel Woods on 9/2. Can anyone recommend a good car-camping site near there?

    Nothing fancy - just a place to hang three hammocks.

    I'm kind of intrigued by Hunter Lake Campgrounds - this is where Diane Schuler, star of the film "There's Something Wrong with Aunt Diane," departed at 9:30 am on Sunday, July 26, 2009, somehow ending up driving the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway, killing eight people in a head-on collision. The campground looked pretty nice in the movie.

    I'm not going - my wife is going. I'm just gonna hang out at the campsite. She's obsessed with Dylan - she goes to six to 10 Dylan concerts a year, minimum. She's seen him in concert well over 300 times, which is not too hard to do since Dylan is basically on a never-ending tour. She's seen him in five countries and countless states.

    Me, I've only seen him about 75 times. I hate his current band - they do every song with a country flavor. In my opinion, he hasn't had a decent backing band since G.E. Smith left in 1991. I think G.E. Smith stood up to Dylan and said, "You know, your arrangements suck and mine are much better," and Dylan listened.

    My favorite backing band was 1986 when Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers backed him up - they knew how to make Dylan sound good. The worst backing band he ever had was The Grateful Dead in 1987. Simply horrific.

    Until he dumps this band, I'll probably never go to another Dylan concert.

    I camped up that way late 80's - can't remember the name of the campgrounds :/ White lake sounds familiar and so does Callicoon along the river. I know thats not a big help. Enjoy your camping

    saw Tom Petty quite a few times circa 1979 thru early 80's & they were great as a back up band!
