Holmestead Woods

Brewster, New York

Book this listing through our partner Tentrr

A campsite with seclusion and privacy close to NYC with numerous activities nearby (kayaking, swimming, bouldering, hiking, biking, etc). If you request a booking and don't hear back from me in 2 hours, text me at 937-594-9377 as the Tentrr notification system doesn't always work. We just installed a brand new canvas tent as of October 8, 2020 and the Tentrr Loo is now located inside it's own privacy tent. I offer a discount to returning campers and those arriving via bicycle. We are right off the Maybrook and Putnam rail trail, which make up part of the Empire State Trail. Reach out to me before booking for the discount.

Coronavirus info: We are cleaning all touchpoints (zippers, tablet top, etc.). In addition, we will provide two 5 gallon jugs of water so one can be used for handwashing. Liquid soap will also be provided. When temps are below freezing, we will put out hand sanitizer in lieu of the five gallons of water and soap for hand washing. When it’s cold, the outside water is turned off so if you need the drinking water refilled, just let me know. We won't come out to greet you but may wave from a distance! And you'll have my phone number if anything comes up.

Wooded campsite accessible through sheep pasture, it's about 200 yards from the parking spot to the Tentrr site. Here's whats included:
- All of the standard Tentrr stuff (two queen air mattresses, picnic table, camp stove, camp toilet, etc) including a full 5 gallon cooler of potable water, 5 gallons of water for hand washing or hand sanitizer when it’s cold, a solar shower, and three tiki torches (but without oil). We also include toilet paper. Plenty of firewood will be provided at the camp site along with fire starting materials (paper, cardboard, lighters, and lighter fluid or starting blocks).

Our site is very close to Southeast Station (Harlem Line). We are right off the Putnam Trailway (which connects to the North and South County Trailways (one could bike all the way here for bike camping from NYC), I-84/I-684, merely an hour or so from the city! Lots to do nearby including:
- Ice Pond Preserve Hiking and Bouldering (great bouldering location!)
- Kayaking in the Great Swamp of Patterson NY
- Hiking in numerous nearby parks like Fahnestock, Michael Ciaola, Ice Pond Conservation Area, etc.
- Fishing and Fly Fishing in several area streams and lakes (NY fishing license required)
- Mountain biking nearby including Ice Pond (only a mile away)
- Road biking around popular trailways (Putnam and North County Trailway) and nearby roads (once the new Maybrook trail opens, it will only be two miles from the site and one could bike in from Albany and other points north)
- Swimming in nearby White Pond

As a warning, due to the proximity to Interstate 84, there is some background noise but it is minimal and can’t be heard normally over the wind or a crackling fire!
