Beer Tree Brew Co. NY

Located in Port Crane, New York this is a brewery that allows dispersed camping in their paved parking area as long as you support their business. They have a food truck and unbelievable beer of all types. Make sure you call ahead at least one day in advance to ensure the owners are aware of your request to stay. The brewery is located near the Chenango river and offers great views of the farm next to the property. A great place to check out!!

Lake views!!

Beautiful new buildings on site, variety of campsites. Favorites are the beachfront sites, access to the beach and beautiful Lake Ontario. Small campground but very nice.

Had a great weekend

Had a great time tent camping. Very clean and people were friendly. Also had great price for firewood at the camp shop.

Free Primitive Campsite

Camped here on a Thursday night in late September. Only found one designated campsite, which was available, but there’s a lot of good space for dispersed camping right nearby. Access at the end of a long, but well maintained, dirt road. Campsite consists of a fire pit and picnic table. Some litter, not too bad. No toilets. Bugs aren’t an issue. Water access at a lovely nearby pond. Highly recommended. Only giving 4 stars because the best free sites have water pumps and vault toilets, but this is a great camping experience

Free primitive camping

Beautiful forest with miles of trails. I found this spot passing through on my bike and had no problem pitching a tent in a secluded spot in the woods. There are official camp spots with water access which are also free to use. Highly recommend!

Great Place

owners are so nice and it’s right in the water with access via boat or even kayak to Slyvan Beach. We love it here and will definitely be back!!

Hidden gem in Chenango County

You have to work a bit to find info on the Whaupaunaucau state forest as a camping destination, but for primitive campers that is part of the appeal! This is a relatively unknown oasis outside of the county, but this state forest has a network of miles of trails for both hiking and criss country skiing. There is an offifical lean-to shelter and developed campsite on trail 20 (see map) but there are several primitive sites with tent site and stine fireplace, plus dispersed leave-no-trace camping is allowed anywhere in the state forest, and the possibilities are endless. Lovely hilly vistas, pondside glens, and lots of clearings near clear streams deep in this old stately forest. A great place to get away from it all for hiking and camping but it is also a fantastic place to go if you enjoy botanizing or birding, lots of unusual species to see. Just beware of ticks, they are invading the region

Quiet, Relaxing, on the lake

I Could go on an on about this campground. go check it out!

Excellent trails

Good hot showers. Friendly staff. Is currently in a construction zone and is experiencing flooding and dune erosion. The natural beauty still shines through these.

Always a great time camping at Southwick!

BEST beach in CNY-sandbar goes on forever-campsites roomy and we’ll taken care of-bathrooms are meticulously cleaned-we always camp in the electric loop about 1/2 mile from the beach-sunsets are gorgeous from here as well-camp here 3-5 trips yearly
