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.

The perfect weekend getaway
What an amazing weekend! The site was super clean and right along the river, it was the perfect the relaxing weekend. Thomas was super accommodating and very nice making sure we had everything we needed. The perfect mix of camping with a bit of creature comforts that made it that much nicer. No worries about setting up a tent or anything, just chilling in the river and cooking on the campfire. I can’t recommend the site enough, will definitely be back!

River's Edge on the Canal
This camping site was ideal for a one-night escape from suburbia. It was obvious to us that Thomas takes a great deal of pride in his campsights, and continues to innovate to optimize his guests' experiences. For example, immediately prior to our visit, he added a trail down to the river from our site that provided easy access from the shore. We look forward to visiting again soon!

River's Edge on the Canal
This location has an amazing view in the tent and on the rest of the spot as well. Thomas takes great care of this spot and others, he made sure multiple times we had a clear walk to the water, we really appreciated him! We also decided to do the tubing trip on the river and he was very friendly and drove us back to our car afterwards! Overall awesome trip and great host!!!

Staying at Thomas’ campsite was a wonderful experience! The beds were very comfortable and all the extra amenities were a great touch. Loved being able to rent tubes to fully enjoy the river :) and the dogs had a great time too. I would definitely stay here again!

Forest Overlook
Overall, we had a good experience. Thomas was a good host and provided good service. Rafting on the Delaware River was definitely the highlight. We wish we got a little more value out of the campsite for the price we paid as it was better suited for 5-6 adults and we had 8 total. Be warned the add-on cost for a raft is per each use, not for the entire reservation, which isn't clear in the listing. Pros: Good service and communicative host (aside from the misunderstanding regarding the $140 raft add-on), amenities such as a canopy, chairs, table, firepit, and grills at campsite, 5 min walk from Delaware River, 2-hour drive from NYC. Host was kind enough to lend us life jackets for the tubes we brought as they are mandatory on the River. Cons: Sloped site with limited flat areas to set up multiple tents, directly behind a cemetery, adjacent to slow-moving stream so lots of bugs, shower is a few minutes away from campsite next to the host's airbnb property and has zero privacy.
