Additional Info & Amenities

Our private camp is situated on 100 acres of land in the middle of the Catskill State Park. The site is bordered by Forever Wild Forest and is minutes from hiking trailheads to Balsam, Giant Ledge, Panther, Big Indian and Slide Mountain, the Catskills tallest at 4180 ft. You can walk to a swimming hole on a winding path through a wildflower meadow blazed with rock cairns along a half mile of private waterfront. Try your luck at catching some wild Brook Trout on the world famous Esopus Creek! The camp has several tent sites and fire rings, a bunkhouse, and a leanto for day use. Camp table and cook pit are covered from the elements. The main tent includes 4" thick self-inflating Therm-a-rest MondoKing 3D XXL insulated mats for luxurious comfort rather than the cold and bouncy Coleman air mattresses supplied by most other Tentrr sites. Open WiFi is available at the Campkeeper home a short woods walk away. Seasoned bundled 16" firewood is available by honor box cash payment a few doors up on Brown rd adjacent to the camp entry road.
