Nestled outside the village of Stillwater, NJ right across the Appalachian trail and the Kittatinny Mountain Ridge, Camp David sports three luxurious log cabins: > Bell's Cabin- Main cabin that sleeps up to six > The Bunk House- Sleeps up to ten > Chief's Cottage- sleeps up to ten All cabins have their own separate listing and can be booked together or combined. The main cabin, Belle's Cabin, is made from hand hewed logs and is the only cabin furnished with a king size bed. All cabins come equipped with full bathrooms, updated kitchens, wood stoves, and the main cabin has a walkout porch on the second floor. All cabins have climate controlled heating/cooling units as well as hot water. Camp David was originally a German hunting camp at the turn of the 20th century. It was later donated to the Boy Scouts in the 1940’s. By the 2000’s, it was left abandoned at which time I purchased it and began to restore it back to its true form while maintaining the cabin life integrity. I am a contractor and arborist by trade and the last ten years I have worked hard to bring the site back to life. The camp consists of 13 acres abutted by 100's of acres of state park land. There are two stocked ponds connected by a cascading stream, multiple fire pits with seating, furnished gazebo with wood stove, picnic tables, and multiple park benches located throughout the property. Below are close locations to visit: > Walpack Fish and Wildlife Management Area- Great for sightseeing, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting > Walpack Inn- Beautiful restaurant with an entire back wall, window view overseeing Kittatinny Valley > Appalachian Trail- hiking, sightseeing > Catfish Fire Tower- Great hiking and views > Buttermilk Falls- beautiful waterfalls > Long Pine Pond & Crater Lake- Both are spring fed and great for swimming and boating (clear water) > Swartswood Lake- Swimming & boating > Delaware River- Great for swimming, boating, tubing, canoeing, fishing > Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area- More sightseeing, hiking, fishing, swimming, Bushkill Falls > Dingmans Ferry

Bell's Cabin
I loved it there. We made S'mores and brought our dog. David was very nice and there was a lot of nature around. The beds were soft, and the fires inside and outside were nice and toasty.

Camp David gets THUMBS UP!!!
We highly recommend this property for your next getaway. We had an absolutely perfect stay at Camp David. The property is large and secluded from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There is so much beautiful nature to lose yourself in. The main cabin house is exquisite. It is cozy and charming. David has done an outstanding job of fully renovating and modernizing a country cabin into a piece of heaven in the woods. David is an amazing host. We saw him at the beginning and end of our stay. He made sure that we had everything we needed to feel at home. Whether you are a couple or a larger gathering, do yourself a favor and stay at Camp David. You'll probably want to go back again and again.

Bell's Cabin
A Hidden Oasis
A writers retreat, or an ideal location for an outdoor wedding? Where to begin? Camp David exceeds all expectations. David, his wife, and crew were all very friendly and welcoming. With very little notice, I arrived a half hour early to find David mowing the lawn, his wife tending to the bed linens and Manuel cleaning the main cabin top to bottom! Red carpet treatment all the way, w every amenity. Full kitchens, bathrooms etc. I stayed 3 nights in the main cabin but had access to all three cabins and the entire property to myself! To much to list honest, from the pool table, to the giant fire pit, to several ponds on the property, and the outdoor living room w firepit overlooking a pond, to the deer grazing in the front yard to- you get the picture. My biggest fear is that it will become so popular, I’ll never be able to book it again!
