This private, breathtaking property is nestled directly on the Neversink River, located just one mile from Exit 109 off NY-17 (new I-86). Join us on 3 sprawling acres, and enjoy the serene beauty of the Neversink River. The property is ideal for anyone looking to escape to a secluded, quiet area, with everything from Bald Eagles, Deer, Rabbits, and other local wildlife. Fell free to step right into the shallow river, just footsteps from your tent, and enjoy some smores by the riverside firepit. The river typically doesn't exceed more than 3 feet of depth throughout the entire property (unless high rain totals). Relatively short drives to local attractions include the newly renovated Holiday Mountain Ski & Fun Park (1.2 miles), Resorts World Catskills Casino (2.6 miles), the Kartrite Indoor Water Park (2.9 miles), and Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (18.4 mile), home to the 1969 Woodstock music festival. 2 gas stations, a liquor store and supermarket are also within 2 miles of the property, as well as local eateries. We recommend bringing inflatables and or kayaks to take advantage of the beautiful river. Guests can drop in a few miles up river, and float down to the campsite. Trip can take anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours depending on current flow and or paddle strength. We hope to have you stay with us!The 3 acre camping area is manicured grass and wild forest, with walking paths throughout the property. The Isle is surrounded by water, with one access way for vehicles, and another for foot traffic. Natural local vegetation can be seen throughout the campsite. Expect beautiful views both up-river and down-river, with the spectacular American Bald Eagle and other local birds constantly soaring through the river basin. Campers can expect private areas of the island, great for sunbathing and or picnicking. The campsite was once a family run tree nursery, which supplied locals with trees, shrubs, and flowers sourced from all over the world, starting all the way back in the 1880's. The entire property (120+ acres) has been in the family since the 1790's, and remains to this day. Remnants still remain of the once successful business, but have been covered by years of overgrowth. Some trees have the remaining burlap sacks still around the root ball. Walking and biking is very popular along the river, as the entire road is located right alongside the water. Kayaking and rafting are ideal for the property. 2 Gas stations, a liquor store and supermarket are less than 2 miles away, with local eateries within the vicinity as well. Feel free to ask the host about local recommendations for food and entertainment.

This is a very beautiful campsite! We were right on the river and there was plenty of open space for games and activities. There is a backdrop of forest giving us a sense of seclusion and privacy. It has a nice big stone firepit for cooking and telling stories around. Plenty of good meditation spots around the river. There is also Neversink Gorge about 10 minutes away for a nice hike leading to waterfalls. We had a blast and 5 days seemed to fly by so we hope to come back next year. Supermarkets, Walmart, and beer/liquor stores are also very close in case you need supplies or forgot anything at home. I highly recommend Blake's land for an amazing getaway!

So lovely!
We enjoyed our stay here a lot. Very easy to access, lovely views, beautiful bird songs all morning. It was a great spot for a getaway and we are already planning to come back again with some friends! Something to note, there is no table, so plan accordingly (there was a pallet that we used as a surface to prepare our food).

Paradise on the river
We loved camping on Blake's land. The spot is just as advertised - quiet, private, clean and well maintained. We saw lots of wildlife. The spot is perfect for kids and dogs - we do not have any kids but our dogs loved the river. Would not hesitate to book again if in the area! Thanks Blake for allowing us to camp!
