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 Lagoon
Great stay with access to river
We loved the stay at the Lagoon. We were a large group and Thomas had everything setup just the way we wanted. Place was easy to find and well maintained. The kids enjoyed the stay as much as the adults. The access to river was a plus. We spent a lot of time in the water. Overall a great camping experience.

River's Edge on the Canal
Great host, but even a greater site
Thomas' site (Canal specifically) was genuinely one of the best campsites I've ever been to! From the cute and comfy tent+mattress combo to the mess-free toilet tent, my experience has been nothing but great. I would absolutely recommend staying here, for sure. Plus, Thomas was an extremely generous and accommodating!

River's Edge Sunrise
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!!!
