About This Campground

Camp on the Esopus Creek in the Big Indian-Oliverea Valley surrounded by seven 3500' Catskill High-Peaks including Slide Mountain, the tallest in the Catskills. Our private camp is situated on 100 acres of land in the middle of the Catskill State Park. A perfect base camp for some of the best hiking in the Catskills, the site is bordered by Forever Wild Forest and is minutes from the 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 with individual fire rings, as well as 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. 'Almost' anything goes.  Learn about 'pack-in pack-out/leave no trace camping' and the 'leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures' motto.  Due to local laws, no music or noise louder than 60 decibels is allowed which is about as loud as conversation with 20 people in a restaurant, an office of 20 people speaking or being on the phone, background music typically heard in restaurants and public spaces, an air conditioning unit at 100 feet.  Our site is to be best enjoyed for the sounds that do exist naturally, the many birds singing their song, the babbling Esopus Creek, the rustling leaves on the trees.   Ask questions, I will always answer anything about camping and am thrilled to share my knowledge.
