State Land Roadside Campsites

There are two primitive campsites at this location. The small parking area can accommodate several cars. One site is to the left, one to the right. We stayed towards the left, which was slightly closer to the road, but was much larger and next to a pit toilet house. The other site was nestled intimately among the trees, and closer to marshy land. Both sites are have access to the creek, which showed active signs of beavers in the area. Some of the land behind the sites have No Trespassing signs, as it belonged to the local YMCA, but there is an info board by the parking area which labels the camping areas as state land. The sites were very clean and quiet, though you will hear occasional cars driving by. 

There are a couple trailheads 5-10 minutes west down the road, Slide Mtn and Panther Mtn. I took a hike up to a vantage point along the Panther Mtn., which has a great view of the Catskills. There are also many campsites along this trail and at the top, but after a significant hike uphill. The nearest areas for fuel/food are Phoenicia to the north, or Ellenville to the south.
