The River's Edge campsites sit on the shoreline of the Delaware River at the western edge of New York State overlooking the mountains of Pennsylvania. Our canvas tents and open air platforms perch between the river and the former Delaware & Hudson Canal which was once was used to transport raw goods by barge to New York City via the 'port' of Port Jervis. The remnants of the canal walls are throughout the property including a 300 person theater which we created to both preserve and feature this industrial history. It also makes a great place for an event or a movie night. Today, the original canal towpath, along which barges would be pulled and floated downstream, is a trail that links all of the campsites over 5 acres and at the furthest end an eel fishing camp that is in operation from June to October (say 'hi' to Jim). In the early 1900s, the train replaced the canal as the primary method of moving goods into New York and if you are lucky — you will hear the train rumble by along the river on the Pennsylvania side. There is something spectacular in the absolute still and grandness of the river, the mountains and the ongoing industrial history of the valley. It is a reminder of the way things used to be.

Thomas was a great host! The tent was clean and he left us with everything we needed including a recommendation for a place to eat! Beautiful site and my husband and I will most certainly be returning.

The Lagoon
We loved our stay here! The site's location on the water is unbeatable-- waking up to beautiful foliage and views of the river was so special! We appreciated the multiple seating options and multiple fire pits as well. About 20 minutes from a bigger town, and a few places to stop for food and coffee a little closer by. A really great experience!

River's Edge Sunrise
Amazing spot, great host. The drive to this site was worth price of admission, beautiful country roads with the foliage changing. The campsite was right next to the river, was so peaceful.
