It would almost be impossible to describe the magic that is Camp Benjamin. We met Ash when we arrived, and she showed us to our camp spot which was on soft grass above kind of a sandy ground which was comfy and made it easy to set up camp. We were able to drive our car right up to the site which made our stay that much more stress-free. We had a nice private little nook with a picnic table in the forest with two fire pits. After setting up our camp, we explored a bit on the trails. It felt like wandering through a calming labyrinth in the trees. Benjamin and Ash met up with us to give us a tour of the property. The huge barn they redid contains a bathroom and a large room where they hold concerts and yoga/dance/outdoor classes. We got to check out the impressive greenhouse that they built. We joined our hosts for a fire closer to their homestead with a view of the huge garden. Ash gave me a jar of sprouts she sprouted. We had a clear view of the milky way and Ash showed me some cool constellations. We were also directed to a beautiful swimming hole about 2 miles up the road where we swam in the morning. We can't wait to come back!

Campsite in the soft grass beneath the trees. The view from the campsite.They hold concerts, yoga classes, dance classes, and outdoor education here. This is where they hold concerts and different types of classes.

Camp Benjamin is magical! I am so grateful for my stay there--it was just what I needed to relax, regroup, and refocus my energies. Not only did I enjoy Camp Benjamin's accommodations, gardens, nature trails, and peace and quiet, put its proximity to the Adirondacks and its lakes and hiking trails can't be beat. Just 10 miles away I was able to go swimming and paddling, and just a mile or so down the road I enjoyed a lovely walk along the Black River Canal. Hosts Ben and Ash went above and beyond to make sure my stay was comfortable, pleasant, and that I had everything I needed. I couldn't have asked for more gracious and thoughtful hosts. Also, I was pleased that their WiFi connection was great as I work remotely and know that Internet service in the Adirondacks can be spotty. I had no issues with it. Camp Benjamin is a true gem and I will certainly be recommending it to others. Thanks Ash and Ben (and Levi!) for the great getaway!

Camp Benjamin is a sweet spot! Camp sites are private and quiet. The trails on the property are perfect for a relaxing walk. You feel comfortable and right at home here! Benjamin and Ashley share their local knowledge for a real Adirondack experience. Thanks Ben and Ash for such a fun weekend! Playing music, sitting by a fire, yoga and soooo many laughs! We’ll be back your place is a real gem!

Ben and Ash were lovely- we met them both the first night and had a great conversation and can’t wait to go back to hang out again.

Great energy on the site even though it rained like mad (we were told this gives you extra camping points, ha!). Even though it rained we were offered to hole up in one of the barns which was such a nice offer! The site was great and we got a proper wake up call from the resident rooster which was the authentic experience we were looking for.

Toilet shower and filtered water were great and not too far away but just far enough so you really felt like you were properly camping.

We can’t wait to bring our whole family out to the farm!

What great guest campers! We really enjoyed having Meg and her friend at camp. We made friends quick and we look for to hosting again. They were real troopers to weather some torrential rains and they left the campsite looking lovely!

This was an amazing experience! The campsite was so private, quiet, and absolutely beautiful! Equally the host were the best! They were so friendly and helpful and truly made us feel welcome and like family. It was also nice being so close to the Adirondack state park, Old Forge, and just minutes to historic Boonville. Most important was just spending lots of quality time at the camp and experiencing such beauty and peace! There is no doubt that we will be returning to Camp Benjamin and sharing our experience with friends and family. This is a must place to stay and visit. Awesome!!!

Camp Benjamin is well kept!Good photo of the main house and some of the neat barns. Good walking trails and this one, T-Dog Trail was just blazed. The host are always busy improving the Camp and Experience. Love it!! Here’s the two barns - one of them they have visiting musicians perform.
