If you’re looking for a great place to camp, look no further. We went to Maloufs for a second time because of the convenience from the city and their overall dedication to making sure you have a great stay. We got to the train station past their shuttle hours but Dick helped us make sure we got to the campsite safely and without issue. The bathrooms are clean, the trails are great, and everyone is friendly. Looking forward to our next stay.

V cool place. Good vibes from the owners and the camps were decently outfitted. Perfect halfway point between “glamping” and “roughing it.” Excellent hiking and foraging in the area.

Great experience. We really liked the kitchen set up - they thought of everything to make your cooking easy...pots, utensils, foil etc. Also loved how you feel like you're in a tree house. The fairy lights and gas lamps are so pretty and lots of dry wood provided for excellent campfires. It's a well run operation and pickup/drop off were easy - we hiked the 2 hours both in and out with just our day packs, since they shlep your gear. Lastly you can't beat the great hiking and proximity to NYC.
