It is a fully fenced in site with a rain shelter. You also have access some of the most popular destinations in the Catskills but still have a site all to yourselves!

All 4 of our sites now include:
-Hotel Quality Memory Foam Mattress
-Sheets and pillow cases upon request
-Pillows, comforter and other bedding must be provided by the camper
-Direct access to 25+ miles of private hiking/mountain biking trails including swimming holes and waterfalls to explore
-The Abandoned Zoo with 3.5 miles of paved walkways + many miles of wooded trails

You also have access to The Old Catskill Game Farm Inn (just a few minute walk from the site) where you can use the half bath, out door shower, hot tub, kitchen and coffee/beverage station.

There is a police training area about a half of a mile up the road. Occasionally you can hear shooting. It is perfectly safe and doesn't often last long.
