This was a fantastic weekend. The camp site is great!!! It's totally private and peaceful and Desmond has put a ton of care and thought into the setup for guests. On top of that, the hosts are kind and friendly. I'll definitely be coming back next season!

The Sanctuary was more than we could have imagined. It's the perfect mixture of being alone in the woods but being close enough to the world if anything were to happen. The host were amazing and more than accommodating to any of our needs. The tent is perfect, 4 of us slept very comfortable and stayed warm with the wood burning heater ! You do have to wake up every couple hours to make sure it keeps going but it was great! We will definitely be coming back again. The spot also had almost everything you need for your experience.

Des is an excellent host and built an amazing campsite with plenty of space. We came with a group of 9 but could have easily fit more.

Everything about this location makes it a great stay. From the direct river access to all innovative fixtures Des built himself - you can quickly tell that everything is well kept.

I'm happy we chose this location and would definitely come back again.

It’s a beautiful campsite, and Desmond (Des) is a very attentive and gracious host. The campsite itself is really sweet and perfect with the river view. Truly a lovely experience, will come again and refer to our friends & family!

The fog of the river rolling in once evening begins, as sunset takes place. Super magical!

A slice of heaven! Long time Hipcamp user here and this space is one of the very best stays I've ever had. Amazing, private camp ground tucked away off from a residential area, it felt like we had the river all to our selves. Dez is a terrific host and he has built a truly unique camping experience.

We booked Neversink for a week (and crossed our fingers about the weather). We lucked out with the weather and we’re grateful to have found this wonderful piece of space that truly is a sanctuary. Des and his family are welcoming and wonderful hosts. They’ve done some great things to make the space fall into the glamping category… great outdoor kitchen, canvas tent, an Instagram photo worthy fire pit and lots of fun games and some fab hammocks.

The eggs from the chickens are delish and the river is incredibly inviting. We spent a lot of time in the river, even though it was freezing, it was so wonderful.

We had lots of fun and felt like we could truly disconnect from the world and work and school and anything else tugging at us. Bug thanks to our Neversink hosts for helping us have a great week!

We had an absolutely lovely weekend Neversink Sanctuary. A private, beautiful and spacious spot right on the river. We loved the beautiful fire pit and comfy hammocks. Also the eggs were delicious! We’ll be back!
