One sunny day, an artist drove down a country road and found a secret. It was hidden in the woods. This magic forest has a spring fed pond filled with life and the beautiful sounds of nature. It became this artist muse and the wildlife became her friends. Now the artist wants to share the magic of this land and hidden gem. Enjoy a peaceful sanctuary in the woods and sit by the pond among the indigenous wildlife. An artist home/ studio is settled in the midst of 7 acres and run by a certified, licensed wildlife rehabilitation. The land is adjacent to a 45-acre farmland. Come and explore the grounds and tranquility on Dearweaver Pond. Only 9 miles from Woodstock and 10 minutes to the majestic Kaaterskill Falls where you can hike and check out the tallest waterfall in NY. Then step into town for some delicious local food, art galleries, and entertainment. With several spots to pick from, pitch a tent or bring your RV camper. Note: Due to the virus We are asking guess if they can to bring their own pot-a-potty. If you do not have one we do have them but we ask that you are able to maintain them so we can keep the campsite safe. With the drought and so many trees we are temporarily not allowing camp fires. Text me with any questions. The artist is also offering studio art lessons and Plein-air painting for an additional fee of 30.00 an hour.

I loved tent camping on Jo's land! We were behind the house but really felt like we were in the woods. We could see the stars and loved walking around on the land. Jo told us about Kaaterskill Falls, which is a short drive away and is the highest waterfall in New York state, and was an absolutely beautiful and magical experience. Highly recommend the falls an Jo's place!

Jo was very friendly and attentive, I had the spot in the back and the privacy level was good 👍😊 big fire place but be aware of fire bans, she provides a table and 2 chairs, but would suggest bring your own chairs 👍 double check your maps and make sure you're entering jeep trail Rd from the south end 👍

Between two ponds!
My second time camping at Dreamweaver, it really is one of the best experiences I’ve had on Hipcamp. Completely private yet still close enough to the main road where you’re not totally in the wilderness. A great weekend spot, without a doubt.

Jo was really helpful, and the site is nice and has the basics that you need. We would definitely come and stay again!

Choose your site carefully!
Overall we had a great experience. However, we had originally booked the pond site and, upon arrival, noticed that the site was directly next to Jo's house with absolutely no privacy. Fortunately, the woods site was still available so she allowed us to use that site instead. The woods site is great, with a nice fire pit and a huge fallen tree that we used as a table. While the house is still visible, there is MUCH more privacy and you are generally pretty secluded. So while we ended up having a nice stay, I really would not recommend the pond site to anyone unless you are cool with being directly in someone's front yard and not having a fire pit.

Dreamweaver pond was a beautiful campsite and so close to fantastic Catskills hiking trails. I highly recommend this camping spot.
