Paradise Valley Homestead

11 sites · RVs, Tents33 acres · West Milford, Passaic
We have 10 large sites available on our 33 acre property located in Northwest NJ. Sites 1 through 4 are on mowed, fairly level fields and are large enough for campers or RV's up to 30ft, or a couple of tents, and sites 5 and 6 are further back in the woods, available only for a few small tents, sites 7 through 10 are much further into the property and can only be accessible with a high clearance AWD or 4WD SUV or you can park and hike your gear in. Although we are only 2 1/2 miles from a main highway, the last 2 miles are on a dirt road with no houses. We are surrounded by protected land, so no neighbors and lots of wildlife, including the occasional bear, coyote or raccoon. Keep all food items secured. Because we are surrounded by protected land we are not sprayed for insects, so be safe and do tick checks often and bring the bug spray. We are 45 minutes from NYC or the Delaware Water Gap and an hour away from the NJ shore. There are horse farms nearby that offer trail rides. We are also close to the Highland and Appalachian Hiking trails. There are two reservoirs within a 20-minute drive for canoeing or kayaking. There are walking trails through our property, including a ten-minute hike on a marked trail to a small waterfall in a ravine.

The River's Edge

5 sites · Lodging, Tents60 acres · Pocono Woodland Lakes, Sullivan
The River's Edge campsites sit on the shoreline of the Delaware River at the western edge of New York State overlooking the mountains of Pennsylvania. Our canvas tents and open air platforms perch between the river and the former Delaware & Hudson Canal which was once was used to transport raw goods by barge to New York City via the 'port' of Port Jervis. The remnants of the canal walls are throughout the property including a 300 person theater which we created to both preserve and feature this industrial history. It also makes a great place for an event or a movie night. Today, the original canal towpath, along which barges would be pulled and floated downstream, is a trail that links all of the campsites over 5 acres and at the furthest end an eel fishing camp that is in operation from June to October (say 'hi' to Jim). In the early 1900s, the train replaced the canal as the primary method of moving goods into New York and if you are lucky — you will hear the train rumble by along the river on the Pennsylvania side. There is something spectacular in the absolute still and grandness of the river, the mountains and the ongoing industrial history of the valley. It is a reminder of the way things used to be.

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 maintain 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.

Camping near Cold Spring guide

About 60 miles north of New York City, this Hudson River village is ringed by state parks. Visitors here can explore marshlands, vast forests, mountains, and, of course, the river itself. The historic small town is a fun destination for summer camping and autumn hiking when the brilliant foliage makes the vistas that much prettier. The Constitution Marsh Audubon Center is just south of town. This nature preserve is excellent turf for bird watching and kayaking the inlets among the rushes. Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve is to the north, a 6,000-acre forest where visitors can hike, fish, and hunt. The steep climb to Breakneck Ridge rewards hikers with panoramic views of the Hudson River Valley. Just off the shore is the tiny Bannerman Island, the site of an abandoned castle. Across the Hudson River is Storm King State Park. Hiking trails loop through this forest, with rocky paths leading to the top of Storm King Mountain. Boaters can launch into the river at the nearby Donahue Memorial Park. Campers can pitch a tent at the Fahnestock State Park, just 9 miles from Cold Spring. The sandy beach along Canopus Lake is a lovely spot for swimming. Rental kayaks are available. Further south in Harriman State Park, Beaver Pond Campground has camping along Lake Welch. A swimming beach and boat make the park popular with families if a bit crowded. There's a limited number of RV sites, but for full hook-ups, trailers should head south to one of the area's RV parks. The Hudson River Greenway Water Trail is an excellent resource for kayakers. The map gives the exact locations of launch sites along a 256-mile stretch of the river, plus amenities such as camping.
