Enjoy the big view from the highest corner of the big field.  This is a sweet little campsite set in a birch grove with a view to the Catskills, and lots of wildlife. 

Two minute walk from your car, and a five minute walk to a swimming pond and a composting toilet outhouse. Near Chatham, New York where there is a brewery, cheese shop, bakery, restaurants, and a movie theatre.  We are half an hour from Hudson, and in the midst of plentiful Berkshire and Hudson Valley hiking, biking and sightseeing opportunities.

Early check-in and late check-out are often fine; just ask.

*Special note for winter campers: depending on both snowfall and what you are driving, the parking locations may change.  In all cases, we will be happy to either ferry you via our 4WD, or help you carry your stuff in.  The winter is really fun and beautiful.

Black lives matter.

The Birch Camp is a unique, serene place to pitch a tent that's private and offers bountiful views. The entire property is beautiful throughout the day and night; wake up early to watch the morning sun pour over the rolling hills or stay up late to walk amongst 1,000 fireflies. Swimming in the small pond a short walk down the road is a refreshing perk on a hot summer day, and the hosts are very accommodating and communicative.

Karl and Athena are our favorite kind of campers; adventurous, curious, and appreciative people who love being outdoors. We highly recommend them to other hosts.

It is beautiful and Malene is very friendly and helpful.
I wasn't able to stay after all because of Brown Tail Moth season, but it is so so pretty and I will be back in another season!! :)

Stunning location amongst a birch grove in a large field with views into the Taconic range. The pond provided a refreshing swimming hole. Quiet and felt remote but had clear directions and accessibility.

This site was breathtaking! The views were phenomenal and the site itself was private and peaceful. Willam met us with a water jug and was super kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!

Birch Camp is beautiful- peaceful, lovely views of the Catskills, fireflies in the evening and it’s very private and quiet. We always enjoy a refreshing dip in the pond. This was our second time camping with Will; we appreciate his swift communication and love the campsite.

Beautiful, secluded, grassy campsite at the end of a long dirt road. Plenty of space to have fun with friends and family! I got to camp in the dark, and it wasn’t too hard to find.

This was our second stay at this property, but first time at this camp site. It is beautiful. On top of a hill with an incredible view, perfect for star gazing with a campfire. Highly recommend.
