100 secluded acres in the Catskills will be at your disposal at our Brandy Brook Pines campsites! We are located in the Rondout Valley nestled between the Catskill Mountains and the Shawangunk Mountains. Our property has great views, hiking trails, and a serene and babbling brook you can explore or lounge near with a good book! We currently have one camp site available located in the open field/yard on our property and comes complete with a private large fire pit. Campers are welcome to camp up near the fire pit or down below in the yard under the trees. We are a short drive away from the towns of Ellenville and Kerhonkson as well as popular hiking and climbing areas in and around Minnewaska State Park. Campers will have access to the basement bathroom inside the house as needed. We will provide garbage bags/bins to campers and ask that all campers practice leave no trace (LNT) principles! We look forward to hosting you.

Important update as of May 2021:

We are in the process of constructing a pond so there is some disturbed land on the property, as you will be able to tell from some of the photos. Unfortunately for the time being the impeccable views are a bit different and anywhere where you can see disturbed land is off limits to our Hipcampers, their guests, and pets.

Emily's property is gorgeous! There is a beautiful lawn, woods and a giant fire pit that sits atop a slight hill where you can hang out and stare into the distant mountains all day. The grounds are well kept with many trails to explore. We were blessed with spring-like weather in December but by night it had quickly turned rainy and windy - stop we had a great time. Emily is quick at responding to messages and was in constant contact with us when that windy weather knocked the power out in the area. Oh yeah! And the bathroom with flushable toilet was clutch - that little bit of luxury was awesome. I'd love to come back one day with calmer weather or during the fall to bathe in glorious foliage.

Such a beautiful and serene camping spot. We had such a great time and will most definitely be back. Emily was great regarding all communication. Farmers markets and wineries are close within driving distance as well as gas stations for firewood and water. Lots to do and wish we could have stayed longer.

Host Emily is very nice, she sent detailed and useful check in instructions ahead. The full bathroom is pretty clean and convenient.
In the morning time, the view from campsite is so amazing, we really enjoyed this trip!

What a wonderful spot tucked in the foothills of the Catskills and a short drive to minnewaska as well. We camped up near the Fire pit to enjoy some nice mountain sunrise views and it did not disappoint. It’s a bit steep if you are lugging heavy gear, just an FYI. Just the sounds of tree frogs and rustling leaves, and some rain when we where there. Bathroom was clean and tidy. Would definitely book again.

Had a great stay at Brandy Brook Pines. It's a beautiful property wth a beautiful vista tucked away in the forest. Really cool fire pit for the evenings. Emily is a very friendly and helpful host. Fantastic place.

Lovely land with a great view over the rolling hills north of the property. Great, clean bathroom with a shower and hot/cold water.

There is an awesome private stone fire circle that’s huge and we cooked and ate up there, as our kitchen.

We only met the owner briefly and he was really nice. Requested we didn’t leave trash on site as a bear has been getting into it and making a mess… didn’t see said bear.

East to find, near some nice landscape and a reservoir. Lots of Mosquitos but jungle juice and a candle dealt with them.
