There are multiple trailheads within the campground offering great day hikes (or overnight hikes). For a lucky few, the creek flows on the back side of some of the designated campsites. The campground offers filtered drinking water taps and bathrooms and showers.

If you are looking for a great campground up in the Catskill Mountains of New York then you definitely have to check out Woodland Valley Campgrounds. Located about 2 hours north of New York City, it is the perfect place to go to get off the grid. No service for about 30 minutes in any direction.

This seems to be a popular campsite as almost every designated spot was full of either tents, RVs, or trailers. The small creek that runs through the back end of some of the campsites are definitely the way to go if you can reserve one. Throughout the campgrounds there are green spigots that provide fresh (what also seemed like filtered) water for drinking and cooking. They also have designated fire pits/cooking grills in each campsite.

There are a few rules when you stay here, however. You have to check into your spot before 9pm, and quiet hours start at 10pm. If you are running late, call ahead, though it should be fine as long as you arrive before quiet hours.

The best part of this campground has to be its access to different trailheads. You have the option to hike up Wittenberg, Cornell, and Slide (tallest peak in the Catskills) Mountain. On the other side of the campground you can take the trail leading to Giant Ledge and Panther Mountain.

Small Stream, Wooded, Peaceful

Rained the whole time we were there. Still, had a great time. Private and quiet.
