Dreamland

3 sites · Tents18 acres · Saugerties, NY
Our woodland property bordering the Esopus creek is a serene and picturesque oasis nestled in the heart of the Mid Hudson Valley. While surrounded by lush forest, it offers easy access to hiking trails that wind through the natural beauty of the area, dinning and civilization (you'll even hear the train from time to time). But our property is more than just a gateway to outdoor adventures; it's a place of tranquility and natural wonder that deserves our utmost respect. With its close proximity to all the fun things the Hudson Valley has to offer, it's the perfect retreat for those seeking a harmonious blend of outdoor exploration and relaxation in a beautiful, pristine forest setting. DreamLand aka: Mugwort Express, boasts three enchanting campsites to choose from, each offering a unique experience. 1 - The Original Site: This campsite is perfect for adventurers who want quick access to the great outdoors. Wake up, jump in the car and hit the road for the great Catskills trails. It's the flattest site and the closets to parking, with under 1 minute walk to your car. 2 - Swing Side: Surrounded by towering trees and lush greenery, this campsite immerses you in the heart of our beautiful forest. It's the ideal choice for nature enthusiasts seeking a secluded and serene experience. Also with under 1 minute walk to your car. 3 - The RiverView: Nestled on a ridge some 80 feet above the river's edge, this campsite provides a tranquil escape with the soothing sounds of flowing water. It's our most adventurous site to get to with a good 10 to 15 minute "medium-difficulty" trek to get... A beautiful trek, not a leisurely stroll (Hint: pack light) but well worth the effort! No matter which campsite you choose, our property invites you to connect with nature, relax, and make lasting memories in this stunning woodland retreat.

The best camping near Martin Van Buren National Historic Site guide

Overview

About

History buffs won't want to miss the chance to step inside Lindenwald, the home of the 8th President of the United States. The sprawling estate of Martin Van Buren covers over 38.5 scenic acres in the Hudson River Valley.

Van Buren purchased the property in 1839, during his presidency. Lindenwald was his primary residence from 1841 to his death in 1862. He lived the life of a gentleman farmer while continuing his political activities. In fact, Van Buren launched two unsuccessful bids to regain the Presidency while living here.

View the short doc in the Visitor Center for a bit of historical background on the man. Then follow one of the guides through the lovingly restored home that retains the look and feel of Van Buren's era. The mansion tour takes about an hour and is well worth the time for the rich historical perspective. Lindenwald was a hub of activity for the politician, his family, staff, and colleagues.

Explore the beautiful grounds with a hike along the Wayside Trail, a three-quarter-mile loop. Eleven interpretive markers provide additional information about daily life on his farm. Up for more historical sights and scenic walking? Pick up the Dutch Farming Heritage Trail in the parking lot of Lindenwald. This multiple-use trail links three nearby communities and connects two National Historic Landmarks. Hikers stroll among rolling hills en route to the Van Alen House property.
