We loved staying at Michael's A-frame. It was a perfect getaway. Thanks for hosting!

Site 2 Spring
I have not been to many campsites where the owner has done such good work and taken such care to make sure everything is clearly explained to campers and that they are comfortable. Michael has really gone above and beyond with his sites and I highly recommend them for anyone looking to camp in the Catskills.

Site 1 Pond
Lovely evening after a good hike
This was a lovely campsite! It was perfect after a long day of hiking in the mountains. Michael was welcoming and friendly, and his land had everything we needed for a safe and relaxing night. We really enjoyed listening to the birds and frogs that live around the pond - we heard thrushes, sparrows, and owls. I look forward to coming back the next time we’re in the Catskills!

Secluded A-Frame Shelter
Absolutely Beautiful
We loved staying here. We stayed in the A-frame and it was perfect. The site was very secluded. There is no electricity but that wasn’t an issue for us. Bought wood from Michael before we arrived and he brought it up to the site for us. He also has a cart to use that helped us get our stuff to the site. The property does have WiFi but can only access it by the house but again that wasn’t an issue for us. Was a good reset to unplug and be outdoors. The A-frame has a ton of hooks to hang stuff which was good for us because we got rained on quite a bit on one of our hikes but all our stuff was able to hang up and dry out. Overall loved our stay and would 100000% recommend. Michael and his wife are great hosts, very informative, and very helpful.

Secluded A-Frame Shelter
The A-Frame (and the entire property) was perfect! Super simple, quiet, and close to the hikes we wanted to do. You can tell that Michael loves this land as every part of the land and structures created are done thoughtfully and with attention to detail. Would absolutely stay there again.

Site 1 Pond
It was such a pleasure to stay at the pond campsite. It is a magical spot and we had the best time. All of Michael’s recommendations for hiking and swimming were amazing. The pond is awesome and swimable! Will definitely come back.
