Mini Yosemite In The Hudson Valley

    High Falls, New York

    Book this listing through our partner Tentrr

    Beautiful, private 27 acre Catskills campsite with a 90 ft rock wall and hidden waterfalls that feels like a mini-Yosemite! Sister site to our Reservoir retreat, great for groups.

    A beautiful, quiet spot, next to a long winding stream, with an amazing ecosystem in your backyard that includes forest, marshland, and lush greenery. Hike up to the top of our 90 ft waterfall to discover five smaller falls to wade and relax in. Just 2 hours from NYC, literally down the street from the Monhonk Mountain House. Enjoy fantastic fly fishing in the Rondout Creek, 75 miles of hiking trails in the Mohonk Preserve, some of the best road biking in the east. Great mix of flats and killer climbs. Access to the Wallkill Rail trail is less than 2 miles away. You can ride to either Kingston or New Paltz entirely on the rail trail. Also terrific local swimming in downtown High Falls. Have brunch on Main Street in Rosendale or a take a 30 minute drive to Woodstock, 10 min to Stone Ridge, 10 min to New Paltz, 15 min to Kingston. There is SO much to do in this area! This year we have experienced a prolonged drought. The waterfall is down to a trickle, however the hiking, nature and views are as spectacular as ever. We are doing a rain dance every night so the waterfall should be returning to its usual glory very soon. Thanks to our resident beaver, there is a dam now being constructed on the Coxingkill creek. This is just west of the tent site. Take a look and see how he (she?) is progressing. I We have dammed the reservoir at the bottom of the falls and it is about 4-5 ft deep. Great for a cooling dip on a hot summer afternoon. The rock cliff ices up in winter providing a great opportuninty for ice climbing. The wall is yours when you book the site. All that we require is signing a liabilty waver before you climb. This winter, the site will be winterized with a snow fly over the tent. Also, there is a woodstove in the tent and a supply of firewood will always be left at the site.

    There is nice canoeing/kayaking on the Wallkill. There are several access points within a couple of miles of the site.

    In the interest of full disclosure, we have received a couple of comments on the noise coming from Rt 213. This road in not visible from the site but you can hear it sometimes. Everywhere else on the property is very quiet. Food wise, we recommend a simple and delicious solution. Foil meals.

    one hint, bring a food thermometer as it is hard to tell when your meal is done.
