Canal Park in Holley
GoneWalkabout from Huntington Station, NY on 08/26/2021 08:51 AM:
That's a shame. I mean we don't close roads because dunk drivers kill people. I guess they feel boaters bring more money in. I stayed there twicw also eating in resturnats for two meals and buy food from the store. The town folk and the police I met were very friendly. I think NYPT and the state as this is now [part of the Empire trail should lobby for it to be reoppened and for more campsites. This should look like the GAP and the C&O with hiker/biker camping. Maybe they could have you register and collect people infomation before allow you to stay. Maybe all of us who stayed there and others should write the mayor and share our pleasent experience in thier town?

So sad, I camped here during the canal anniversary in 2017. I found Holly so friendly with 3 people directing me to the campsite. I had planned to return here in 2022 after covid.

Called the phone number given on the canal app, which is not in service. Stopped by the police station, but the door was locked. Called the police (non emergency number) and nobody answered. Called the sheriffs dept. (non emergency) and nobody answered. Finally found out from a neighbor of the park that
camping is NOT allowed in Holley (June 2019). We were told the new restriction is because some campers annoyed the boaters who were nearby and also docked up for the night. This is unfortunate as Holley has a wonderful park, some of it along the canal, and cyclists staying overnight would spend $ at local stores and restaurants if they knew they could safely stay the night. The gate keeper was wonderful and gave us the code to access the bathrooms and showers available for the boaters. Shouldn't long distance cyclists be given the same opportunities as boaters? Let's make it easier to recreate along the canal, not harder. Somebody should fix this, or at least update the info on the state's app and website.

Yes, I found this out too- we stopped there for lunch and the park is So lovely! So too bad some people had to ruin this! We stayed at the Friendly Hotel in Spencerport instead- very reasonable fees. But the park is beautiful in Holley. I called all the places you did- luckily before we left, what a bummer!

That's really a shame that Holley turned it back on all bike tourists because of the actions of a few.

I have removed Camping from the amenities for Holley Park. Thanks for the heads-up.
