Best in New York: Finalist
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
Our woodland property bordering the Esopus creek is a serene and picturesque oasis nestled in the heart of the Mid Hudson Valley. While surrounded by lush forest, it offers easy access to hiking trails that wind through the natural beauty of the area, dinning and civilization (you'll even hear the train from time to time). But our property is more than just a gateway to outdoor adventures; it's a place of tranquility and natural wonder that deserves our utmost respect. With its close proximity to all the fun things the Hudson Valley has to offer, it's the perfect retreat for those seeking a harmonious blend of outdoor exploration and relaxation in a beautiful, pristine forest setting. DreamLand aka: Mugwort Express, boasts three enchanting campsites to choose from, each offering a unique experience. 1 - The Original Site: This campsite is perfect for adventurers who want quick access to the great outdoors. Wake up, jump in the car and hit the road for the great Catskills trails. It's the flattest site and the closets to parking, with under 1 minute walk to your car. 2 - Swing Side: Surrounded by towering trees and lush greenery, this campsite immerses you in the heart of our beautiful forest. It's the ideal choice for nature enthusiasts seeking a secluded and serene experience. Also with under 1 minute walk to your car. 3 - The RiverView: Nestled on a ridge some 80 feet above the river's edge, this campsite provides a tranquil escape with the soothing sounds of flowing water. It's our most adventurous site to get to with a good 10 to 15 minute "medium-difficulty" trek to get... A beautiful trek, not a leisurely stroll (Hint: pack light) but well worth the effort! No matter which campsite you choose, our property invites you to connect with nature, relax, and make lasting memories in this stunning woodland retreat.

Site 2 The Swing Site
Excellent site with river access!
My fiancee and I stayed here while we were in town for a concert. The site was very well-maintained and felt very private. There was a short hike down to some amazing river access for swimming and hanging out. The only drawback was some pretty loud gunfire from a nearby gun range but I would not let that dissuade you from staying at this lovely site.

Amazing spot. Beautiful location.
Amazing spot back off the road and close to downtown Saugerties. We wanted to get out of the city and drove up with our two dogs. Everyone had a blast. Definitely check out the river and bring good shoes as the walk is a bit steep at parts.

Site 3 River View
Really beautiful site! Pack light because the hike in can be tough on a hot day. Recommend hanging perishable foods for the sake of avoiding critters. Definitely spend time down by the river. Bring strong bug spray!

Site 2 The Swing Site
Lovely campsite! We were unable to do a long hike into camp this weekend due to my partners ankle injury’s— so Greg’s property was perfect. There is a short trail across the labeled parking area to the campsite. The site itself has plenty of tree cover, was relatively bug free, and easy to bring supplies in and out of. The swing at the site is currently out, I would love to revisit when it’s back up and running. The description doesn’t lie about the trail down to the river—my gps clocked it as about 1 mile and 400 ft ascent round trip. There are ropes to help out, but make sure you’re in your best hiking shoes. Lovely little swim spot down there though!

Wonderful stay!
Lovely space near the Catskills! River was magical and all to ourselves given we were the only ones there. Composting toilet in good conditions, bring your own toilet paper. Low cell connection, lost near the river.
