We invite you to come camp on 77 acres of varied land.  Woods, fields, swimming pond, hiking trails, goats, and possibly even other campers, although it's very private if that's how you'd like it.  You may be perfectly content staying put, but if you seek small town offerings, Chatham (15 minutes away) offers restaurants, art galleries, a brewery, movie theatre, two bakeries, and some shops.  We are half an hour from Hudson, and in the midst of plentiful Berkshire and Hudson Valley hiking, biking, antiquing, and sightseeing opportunities. Enjoy the big view from the highest corner of the big field.  This is a sweet little campsite set in a birch grove with a view to the Catskills, and lots of wildlife.  Two minute walk from your car, and a five minute walk to a swimming pond and a composting toilet outhouse. Near Chatham, New York where there is a brewery, cheese shop, bakery, restaurants, and a movie theatre.  We are half an hour from Hudson, and in the midst of plentiful Berkshire and Hudson Valley hiking, biking and sightseeing opportunities. Early check-in and late check-out are often fine; just ask. *Special note for winter campers: depending on both snowfall and what you are driving, the parking locations may change.  In all cases, we will be happy to either ferry you via our 4WD, or help you carry your stuff in.  The winter is really fun and beautiful. It's really nice here and we're happy to share it.  Land acknowledgement: We are on the unceded land of the Stockbridge Munsee Mohicans. Black Lives Matter.

Beautiful location overlooking farmlands & rolling hills. Very isolated & quiet. There’s a huge field with lots of space for anything. There’s a small pond nearby that is very peaceful.

Awesome site! Very isolate, quiet with open view. Would definitely come back again. The hill is a bit steep and could be hard to get up there in wet and snowy weather in a 2WD.

Quick Easy Extremely enjoyable
Loved everything about it. Quick and easy to get to with the directions provided. Only 2 hour drive from NYC. We built our own fire, hiked, and cooked out in the woods. There was plenty around to explore that kept us more than busy. William was very attentive and was there to assist with any questions or concerns. There’s a Walmart about 20 miles 30 minutes from the camp site that came in handy for any necessities. Probably going to make this a thing and come back next year! Camped in early October and it was already cold, especially in the mornings, so prepare for that if camping during off seasons.

Beautiful views, refreshing swims
I would highly recommend staying at William’s place. The Birch Camp site is so beautiful, spacious and private. I enjoyed the views of the distant hills, the breeze that kept the bugs at bay, and the extremely nice swimming hole that William and his family generously share with their guests. Birch Camp is also conveniently close to great hikes, restaurants, and attractions throughout the Berkshires and Hudson Valley. This was my second time staying with them and definitely not my last!

This was a great site for our kids’ first camping experience. The campsite was private and peaceful. Our kids loved walking the creek and looking for frogs. William’s instructions were very clear and we had everything we needed (William even left us several gallons of water).

This was a gem of a spot. Super private forest glen. William was a wonderful host bringing us the wood we ordered and hauling water for us. I can't say enough about how much we loved it.

Creekside camp is a very private campsite on a beautiful piece of land! My dog and I had a really nice time here and I can't wait to come back! The swimming hole is very nice and is a great spot to watch the birds!

Birch Camp is a great site. We had four tents up and there was plenty of flat ground for everyone. The views of the mountains in the distance were beautiful. It's on the edge of a field, so be sure to bring bug spray! Billy was a good host. He met us when we arrived, brought us the two (pretty large!) bundles of firewood – one of which was in a waterproof Dry Bag, which protected it from a night of rain – and let us be.

Getaway with the dog
Creekside is an amazing place to camp! It’s so close to everything, but when you’re there it’s quiet and still and the “civilized” world might as well be 1,000 miles away!! My dog loved spending time off-leash running around the huge property. The beautiful pond on the property is a bonus. William was very friendly, met us at the campsite with firewood.

Secluded, shady campsite
The campsite was beautiful, secluded, and peaceful, and it was obvious the hosts worked hard at keeping it cleared of debris. The floor of woodchips made it super-easy to navigate this site, with no roots or rocks to trip on! It was wonderful to have so much of the camping equipment already available, too. The hosts were friendly and available when needed, though we had all the water and firewood needed from start to finish.

Beautiful views to wake up to each morning. The property is secluded with lots of wildlife nearby- we enjoyed watching the rabbits from a nearby distance. William was very friendly and met us with a jug of water. Thank you for sharing your space with us.

Beautiful secluded forested campsite. Make sure you're aware that it is a short walk from the car down an incline into the creekbed (as stated in the owner's description), if you have a lot of camping gear you want to bring down it might take a couple trips. William was very communicative and helpful.

We had a great stay on William’s property! He was easy to communicate with and provided detailed information for getting to the site. The site was private, beautiful and so peaceful! We loved sitting in our hammocks just listening to the breeze. We would recommend the site to anyone - but note that there is a short walk and a slight uphill climb back up to the parking spot, something to keep in mind if you bring a lot of gear!

The Birch Camp is a unique, serene place to pitch a tent that's private and offers bountiful views. The entire property is beautiful throughout the day and night; wake up early to watch the morning sun pour over the rolling hills or stay up late to walk amongst 1,000 fireflies. Swimming in the small pond a short walk down the road is a refreshing perk on a hot summer day, and the hosts are very accommodating and communicative.

Stunning location amongst a birch grove in a large field with views into the Taconic range. The pond provided a refreshing swimming hole. Quiet and felt remote but had clear directions and accessibility.

Stars and fireflies!
Birch Camp is beautiful- peaceful, lovely views of the Catskills, fireflies in the evening and it’s very private and quiet. We always enjoy a refreshing dip in the pond. This was our second time camping with Will; we appreciate his swift communication and love the campsite.
