Great first time!

We had a fantastic time camping at Pheonix Landing! Its a great place with hiking in the immediate area or close by if you want to take a drive. It is secluded enough to feel like your in the back woods but close enough to town if you ever need anything. Great fire pit and picnic tables already set up with a nice landing to set your tent on. We would highly recommend this place and plan on returning for a repeat adventure!

We had a great time at this site. The kids enjoyed exploring the woods and the platform was nice for setting up our tents. The solar powered umbrella light was a cool touch!

Great Campsite! Lots of privacy, the road is close by but it's not distracting. Mike allows you to pick what type of camping experience you want. He has built a wonderful site with a toilet/shower/sink combo, platform, and picnic tables; however, he also allows you to take a more primitive approach and camp "off-site". Highly recommend and will be back.

Such a great place! Phoenix Landing is a beautiful, quiet, secluded spot. There's plenty of great space for tents, multiple fire pits, picnic tables and chairs. Mike is a great host -- he was very communicative and just a pleasure to talk to. We brought our 6-year-old and 9-year-old kids and they found plenty to do in the woods all weekend long. We hope to stay there again soon!

We loved camping at Phoenix Landing. The host Mike was super friendly, responsive, and helpful. We loved the site. It's very large, nestled away in the woods. It has plenty of seating/tables, a great fire pit and pit grill, and lots of good areas for tents. Would definitely recommend and hope to be back next year!

Had a great stay! Tucked in beautiful forest with all your camping amenities. Perfect spot for a getaway - chance to sit by the fire and relax. We were doing research on streams in the Hudson River, and this was a perfect HQ for our field work. Mike was also extremely kind, easy to communicate with, and quick to lend us a hand when we needed.

The camping experience here is spectacular. Mike is a stellar guy who is helpful, knowledgeable, and easy-going. The land is pristine with a babbling brook running along the edge of his property. We had a platform set up with a rain tarp for our tent which was nice. There are plenty of chairs and tables, so consider not having to bring that stuff. If you are into cool bugs and salamanders, this is the place! There are mushrooms to hunt and other forest trinkets to behold. There is a fascinating Shiitaki farm that Mike runs and is happy to show you. It is pet-friendly, and there are extra fun things like foam swords, balls, fishing pole, etc. Only 90 minutes from NYC, you can't beat this getaway. It is private, quiet and a very healing place.

Main camp has an elevated platform for tent and nice fire pit with chairs and tables.A BBQ tradition of burying a marinated roast, in this case a pork shoulder, with a bunch of hot rocksDig a hole and fill it with hot rocks from the campfire, then place your well wrapped roast.  In this case we wrapped the pernil with banana leaves and foil.Fishing at the creek

Loved tent camping here! There were many amenities (covered deck, firepits, outhouse and outdoor shower, picnic table) making it a very comfortable stay. Communication was excellent, directions clear. And most importantly, the land is beautiful. Lots of land to roam around in, water to explore, rock formations to climb. One can hear the road traffic in the distance but it feels like it’s in the mountains since there are almost no houses to be seen from this spot. Absolutely incredible so close to the city.

Would definitely come back!

I love this camp site! Very private and lots of nature around. You can try highland trail right next campsite. When I stay at phoenix landing, unexpectedly snow storm came and it has crazy wind, Mike checked me consistently and help. He is a such nice man and help me from his heart in unexpected weather. Even weather was crazy, it was the one of best camping trip I’ve ever had! Trail was super nice and long. I could go with bicycle(next time) I definitely go back again! Thanks Mike!

Long bicycle ride from the city. I think you can ride 30min bike ride from near train station. Even Mike put tarf on wooden balcony, I decided to my tent on ground.. there is lots of options... It seems like many people can come for glamping. Really nice nature aroundMy breakfast.. haha
