We are happy to connect you with a local massage therapist or tour guide. Send us a message for more info on how to make your stay more relaxing and fun! Nature is calling! **History of The Awosting Club** In the mid 1950's John Atwater Bradley, then a graduate student, attended a conference in Cragsmoor, the site of a celebrated art colony not far from what is now the Awosting Reserve and The Awosting Club. The next morning at dawn, he went out for an exploratory hike and did not return until long after dark. Bradley hiked through evergreen and hardwood forests, along bubbling streams, roaring waterfalls and shimmering mountain lakes. He discovered an incredible wilderness like none he'd ever seen, populated by whitetail deer, black bear, fox, racoons, bobcat and coyote as well as a natural aviary of hawks, peregrine falcons, owls, eagles and pileated woodpeckers. That day he fell in love with the Shawangunk Ridge. The Bradley family still lives on the property, and after 50 years of sharing the property with educational organizations, schools, artists, writers, explorers, camps, family and friends, are excited to invite others to fall in love with the Shawangunk Ridge as John Bradley had over 70 years ago. Bradley's daughter, Camilla, and her family are keeping the Awosting traditions alive by sprucing up the camp buildings and platforms while maintaining the trails that have been used for decades for outdoor adventures: from sleeping to eating to playing to communing with nature in all her glory.

Great stay!
We absolutely loved staying at the geo dome at the Awostings Club. Camilla and the staff person who was our contact, Jennie, were both great. Jennie responded extremely quickly to any questions we had during our stay. The dome was spacious, clean, and comfortable, and the camp area was beautiful and peaceful. Also, you can't miss doing the quick hike to the falls while you're there, absolutely worth it! When we stayed there, there was some construction going on down the hill, so there was some noise during the day, but other than that it was extremely serene. Would love to come back!

Private waterfall and fun glamping
An absolute hidden gem! The property backs up directly to the state park and has numerous hiking trails within walking distance - so no worries about scrambling to find parking. So fun to stay in the dome; really enjoyed the thoughtful touches and the private waterfall on the property is simply stunning. 10/10 cannot recommend this experience enough!

Geo Dome Lovers!
The geo dome was out of this world. My friend and I hit it during late September and had the entire dome campsite to ourselves. It was extremely quiet, we felt like we were in our own world. It truly is a special place and one of a kind experience everyone should have. The dome itself was super cozy and warm. The fire pit was wonderful to gather around as the sun went down. And it was our first time using an out house but it was super clean and fun to go out to. We also used the outdoor shower and hiked to the water fall. Overall a 11/10 experience. Katie was also a friendly host for us by giving good directions and recommending the hoot owl for dinner. Definitely will be coming back here every year.

Awesome time!
We had such a great time! Katie our host was amazing, she had big smile all the time. Quick response to our questions/request, and she even gave us marshmallows when we told her we forgot to grab some on the way. The dome was very clean, nicely furnished with little fridge. They provide you with portable lamp that you can use during night. There are indoor & outdoor hammock, and feels very tranquil overall. Bathroom was fine, it was the one that worried me the most but I felt comfortable using it. Actually, the wood shaves that you place after you "go" makes the bathroom smell woody. Overall, we had such a wonderful time. We are thinking of coming back soon to look at the foliage.

We had a great time on our return trip to the Geo-dome. This time, we made sure to also check out the falls trail on the property. Katie was very friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed having the chance to see one of the other sites available for booking (that deck view!) The surrounding area has so many good hikes and memorable views. Loved learning a little more about the background of the site! :)

Exceeded expectations
This private property is amazing! There's a short hike that takes you to a private waterfall that's such a hidden gem. The dome that I stayed in had all of the essentials and included things that I didn't expect such as AC, a fridge, Bluetooth speaker, umbrellas and a lantern! The outhouse was very clean. It has an outdoor shower and comes with shampoo. The showers don't feel very private though. The domes are set up high along a stream so you can hear the water. The property is big, which allows you to explore around. It's such a neat place. What a hidden gem. The host was great. She was very communicative and showed me to my dome. She gave me clear instructions for where to go to see the waterfall. I highly recommend this spot even if you might not be the camping type. It has everything you need and more!

Outstanding camping by lovely ppl
This property is a magical Eden. One of the quietest places we’ve been in the Catskills area. Gorgeous hiking right from the camp. The domes are way nicer than a glamping experience, and the individual camp site amenities (small fridge, the bed, shower, toilet, fire pit, deck) are outstanding. Highly recommend for anyone, and particularly for people easing in to camping.

Serene stay in the dome
We loved our stay at the Geo-Dome! The dome itself is gorgeous, peaceful and comfortable with a great deck and fabulous view of trees and sky. The property is beautiful, with a lovely hike and great access to everything the Gunks have to offer! Easy, attentive communication with our friendly hosts -- everything was great!

Magical Geo-Dome
We had an amazing stay at the Heated Geo-Dome in the Gunks!! The dome was very nice and comfortable. It was great to have the heat for a chilly weekend. The bed was cozy and the rest of the furniture was great too. The property was beautiful and it was refreshing to be out in the woods with a firepit for cooking dinner. Kristen was very kind and helpful in providing us with information and fresh water for our whole stay. We would highly recommend staying at a Heated Geo-Dome in the Gunks.

Wonderful woodland escape
The geo-dome was wonderful. The property manager, Kristen, was super helpful, bringing us firewood (and s’mores!) and making sure we had everything we needed. The room was very cozy and felt private - even with 4 other domes set along the road. The property is really special - secluded and tucked into a ravine with a small stream below. It feels isolated in the heat of ways but has enough amenities to make it easy for folks that don’t want to fully rough it.
