Awesome location!

Shawangunk was SUCH a nice place to stay. So many good things - though a few things to keep in mind when you're booking, too. 

I definitely recommend trying to get the walk-in (meaning you can't drive to them) sites (8-15) because they're just a little bit more set back and kind of wonderfully…

Manicured campground

This campground was extremely manicured. There is no eating at the campsite, they would prefer you cook and eat by the showers, the lights go off at a certain time. The road is asphalt and well maintained to to campsites. They place wood chips all around. The setting is beautiful, it just feels…

Perfect location for a climb in the Gunks or a hike in Minnewaska

Love this campground! Have been here several times and have never had a complaint. There are drive-up sites and also walk-in sites. No fire pits at individual campsites, though. Only a group fire pit. Located really close to the Gunks for climbing and also some great hikes around the area
