The vibe at Bare Camping
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was my first experience using HipCamp and I can honestly say I am a total convert. The check in process and communication were all 10/10.
As far as the actual campsite, it is infinitely better than any standard campsite I’ve ever been to. Chester had two fire pits, a cool bamboo teepee structure and plenty of space to roam around. If you are considering camping in Harriman state park....don’t! Come here instead.
There’s some cool trails nearby, an old cemetery right across the street and we even had a visit from Porky, a friendly neighborhood pig. Guarantee you won’t get that at your typical busy campground.
Overall a great experience. Considering the location to NYC, it’d make a nice weekend get away for anyone looking to escape and experience nature. Don’t hesitate to book here!
Nice setup the site is rustic feels like a camp site.. it could use some help but overall a good experience. Lots of firewood ask the neighbors...
If your not worried about the outhouse and there is a lake a short drive only problem you will get a parking ticket if not parked in designated spot. The trail is ok but you need to watch were it is taking you.
The site, located behind the host’s house, was well maintained and the host responded very quickly to my initial messages to request the site and ask for directions, and he let me know at that time that he would not be reachable during most of our stay. The site was decent, with two fire pits and room to park our car off the street.
Unfortunately the neighbor’s dog was barking incessantly at us for hours each time we were at the campsite, and no one intervened. There were also two men shooting compound bows/arrows in the back of our campsite for a couple hours one of the days we were there - my girlfriend and I were too afraid to approach them, but they stared us down and did not stop, which was a bit scary.
Great little spot right on the edge of Harriman. Still pretty close to other houses so you will hear the neighbors / see lights from other properties most of the night. Nicely set up, and the host provided firewood the first night which was cool. Perfect for Moto camping into bear mountain!
