Sandia, in Oct 2008 at a well attended gathering of old and new Gunks climbers held at the MP visitor center, then AAC president Jim Donini, past AAC president Jim McCarthy and others outlined plans for what was hoped to become a reality for the new campground. The AAC and Mohonk are not the only groups involved in the venture.

It is in the interest of climbers to be concerned about how the campground comes to be and how it effects the community.
