Whether you prefer traditional camping or glamping, or maybe somewhere in between; it’s up to you at Neversink Sanctuary. Nestled on the peaceful banks of the Neversink River in the beautiful Catskill Mountains, our private campsite is the perfect place to relax and recharge. “The Shed at Neversink Sanctuary” is loaded with amenities such as a covered front porch, heat, electric, wi-fi, and a full outdoor kitchen.  Feel free to keep it simple and cook on the open campfire or use our propane grill and smoker Big Green Egg Komodo BBQ (yes, you read that right) to show off your culinary skills. Come enjoy kayaking, tubing, fishing, bird watching, or just exploring the tranquil waters of the Neversink River at this private location. It is not uncommon to experience bald eagle here at the sanctuary as there is a nest in view and one a bit further upstream.  Let the refreshing river waters wash your stresses downstream. Our site has plenty of room for additional tents and playing yard games such as can jam and cornhole which are provided for your enjoyment.  We have extra gear for convenience, zero gravity chairs, 5 ft table, and more!

We had the best time at Neversink Sanctuary! Des really has put a lot of love into the site- he’s thought of everything. With the full kitchen set up, all the toys and games he provides, the cozy cabin- you can’t ask for more. You certainly don’t need to leave the site on the river but if you do, there’s great local hiking and cute little towns to explore nearby. Beyond the site itself, Des was really responsive, kind and helpful- toting our gear down to the area and providing firewood and fresh eggs. We would love to return in the future and would recommend Neverskink to anyone!

We had such a great time at this campsite. Almost anything imaginable was available there including the tiny cabin, smart tv, yard games, a smoker, pizza oven, etc. The site is very private with direct access to the Neversink river. It’s close to some really nice hiking too. Des and Tracy were very responsive and knowledgeable of the area. Highly recommend!

Des has truly made a sanctuary on the neversink river. All the extra details and amenities helped make a seamless, memorable and relaxing weekend spent enjoying the river and cooking over the fire. Would highly recommend for small groups and particularly those who want a dose of nature but aren’t necessarily the roughin’ it camping type.

We stayed at the campsite with 3 adults and 3 children 4,8,10 years old. The site was beautiful as seen in pictures but there were pleasant upgrades. The cabin was cozy and spacious. We even had complimentary large cooler (bring your own ice)! Plenty of outdoor furnishings, including propane grill under a covered setting.

Des helped us with our gear to and from the site. He setup extra tent for us upon request (small fee). He also set up a shade tent which was perfect in case of rain, too. I was worried about reports of possible rain/thunderstorms during our stay but with all the coverings that were in place, we still could’ve been comfortably outdoors in the rain.
There was much to do with the provided games, the river, kayak if you choose. Among the wildlife we saw was a bald eagle across the river everyday (fitting for July 4th weekend) what a treat! And don’t want to forget the delicious homegrown eggs.
Communication with Des was excellent. Our hosts were very friendly and down to earth. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will visit again. Thank you for a great camping experience!

Neversink Sanctuary was absolutely amazing. The campground was immaculately groomed with all the amenities you could want and more. Des's new cabin that he built was perfect. As for the scenery, the photos dont do it justice just how beautiful and peaceful this place was.

Sun rising through the trees was incredible Crystal clear water with awesome viewsBald eagle family are the next door neighbors

What an amazing stay! Several friends and I visited the Sanctuary this past weekend and I wish I could go back! When looking at the maps of the sanctuary, it doesn’t look like much but once you get there you realize you have a private oasis. Des provided so many different amenities. We spent the day floating down the river and kayaking. I highly recommend.
