The Upper Shire Private Campsites in the Hudson Valley are on a gorgeous hill with a small pond surrounded by 22 acres of an old horse ranch. It is located in Columbia County near the Massachusetts and New York border. There are currently 5 unique camping areas located here. Each one is special due to its location on the hill. Check out our map and enjoy our spacious yet secluded campsites and our new off-grid double shower shack with hot and cold water on demand. This place has a relaxed atmosphere and is located near Catamount Ski Resort, Bash Bish Falls, Taconic State Park, Hudson NY, and Great Barrington, MA.

1987 Airstream at Tin Can Valley
Loved the airstream Experience
We were so happy to stay in the airstream because it rained a lot at night and we were so close to Tanglewood! My boys loved exploring the property while we prepared our meals. It was a great time!

Upper Shire Meadow
Third stay
This was our 3rd stay. We absolutely love it here!! The views, the privacy, and now showers too. Joanna is so responsive as well as gives space. It’s such a great place for our reactive dog (to other dogs) to be able to relax in nature.

Pondside Meadow
Peaceful and private
This was our first Hipcamp experience. It was incredible! Joanna was super responsive. The campsite was enormous and so peaceful. The new outdoor shower was a bonus! Loved every minute of our two night stay.

Pondside Meadow
Our first Hipcamp experience!
We booked the Pondside Meadow for the weekend and had a pleasant stay at the campsite. Joanna was such a hardworking, warm and friendly host; she provided info about the campground, brought us some firewood and a jug of potable water. The campsite was super clean, spacious and came a couple of hammocks, Adirondack chairs, a firepit and a neatly tuck away string light by pond side, it's perfect spot to chill and to enjoy the sunset. We set up our tent and tarp near the tree line to escape the summer heat during our stay; the view of the pond was phenomenal at dusk. Nature calls can be answered by a short distant to the clean outhouse. If tent camping is not your thing, then you can book the A-frame cabin, Pine Grove Bell canvas glamping tent or the vintage Airstream trailer. We would love to come back for the foliage of Fall season.
