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.

Beautiful spot along the river! The site is far enough away from the others that it still has a private feel. Thomas is very welcoming and responsive! My friends and I had a wonderful weekend.

Camp site is perfection!
My friends loved River's Edge sunset very much. We actually wanted to extend our trip but work is calling. When we arrived at the location, we were amazed at the view, the peace, and the setup ( chef's kiss) they have all the basic stuff we need. Thomas was the best host ever. he provided us with free wood for the campfire. The linens were fresh and clean tent. 12 out of 10.

Fun time with riverside camping!
Loved the fact we were right next to the river! The care put into the construction of the site is obvious, it's got rustic flair with touches of modern amenities. Thomas was graceful, gave us great advice and made himself available to us if we needed anything. Lovely experience, would definitely come back again.

Cute camping with our kiddies!
We loved it here! Everything you need for an authentic and comfortable camping experience. We were there at the start of fall, so Hall made sure we had blankets and plenty of firewood. We went rafting, all organised by Hall. It was an easy and comfortable stay…our little ones adored the freedom of this small private camping site. Friends joined us part way through our stay, so we had additional tents pitched… we just had a great time around the campfire☺️

10 man fathe-son weekend perfection
This is one of the rare times in my travel history where the photos and the narrative on what I was renting was UNDER-SELLING the accommodations. The site is better than described, and the owner is an amazing guy who was there for us for whatever we needed (extra firewood, a canoe trip, directions to mountain biking trails). We did father-son weekend with 5 adults and 5 boys, and the site was more than enough (with extra tents provided by owner, and set up incredibly well). Even the bathroom surprised me and was wayyyyyy better than I was expecting! lol Highly, highly recommended.

This is an absolutely beautiful site with everything you could need. Private, but not totally isolated. We loved being so close to the river, and even saw a bald eagle! We had a lovely stay and would 100% recommend.

Great Glampsite for MotoCamping
great setup by thomas!... the site was just as i envisioned, off the beaten path literally.. but the tent and all the amenities made my trip so much easier and comfortable (took my motorcycle) its nice after a day of riding, fishing to fall into a real mattress. he even set me up with a propane grill which was nice. highly recommend this site!

Beautiful spot in the woods near the river. Great instructions for arrival and for how to maintain the camp. Mostly private- excellent space to just rest out in the elements. There was not much cell service, but it's close to swimming, rafting, hiking.

Amazing camping experience
This camp site is beautiful and amazing. Dreamy views of the deleware river and soaking in the water was divine. Camp site is fully set up and the host was attentive, kind, and helpful. We were there during both beautiful weather and torrential downpour, and the tent stayed dry and cozy. Highly recommended host, experience, and location.

The place was really beautiful! Thomas was nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Hanging out in the water was great (water was too shallow to swim) but make sure you bring water shoes, because there are slippery stones at the bottom. It was very quiet and serene, I wish we could stay for more than just one night.

It’s was a very beautiful site. Everything we needed was ready and there, and it was very clean and the beds are very comfortable. Although we were disappointed that the bug net zipper was broken. Very nice trip otherwise! Thomas was responsive and helpful.

Such a nice space and setup! Loved hanging by the water and all the amenities provided. It started to rain towards the end of our stay and we were able to enjoy the cover over the table area. Only small issue was a leak in the middle but it didn't bother us much, just had to move a few things.
