We were honored to be the first Hip-Campers to stay at Camp Handsome Hollow! Lance and Roberta were amazing hosts, and the amenities provided felt more like a luxury stay than your standard camping trip. We had several families that came together for MDW, and we all enjoyed our time at the camp. The kitchen (and amazing view in the morning) beat all of our expectations. Lance made sure we had all of the appropriate pots and pans to cook for our large group. Having the covered eating space served us well, as it did end up raining, but it didn't ruin our time. We were very appreciative of the Bonfire on the first night, as the kids were stoked to see all the brush wood go up in flames. Overall, you can tell that Lance and Roberta put a lot of love into making the camp special and we can't wait to come back to visit so we can go swimming at the Eddy in warmer weather. If you're looking for things to do in the area, def make sure you hike Jensen's Ledges - it was a highlight from the weekend!

We were honored as well to host you and your family at our camp! Our hearts were full and we were truly amazed that we could share this opportunity, along with introducing you to our local, natural resources. We truly enjoyed meeting you and your family! Your family is absolutely amazing and we couldn't have asked for anything more. You were extremely respectful, leaving our camp in immaculate condition. You have set the benchmark and bar high for other "hip campers!" We were anxious as new hosts, but you put us at ease. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to your return, hopefully before next MDW, when the weather is warmer. You and your family are always welcome at Camp Handsome Hollow! Thank you for "hip camping," with us! Your hosts, Lance & Roberta

Our group had a great time at Handsome Hollow! There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out, and all the amenities were great. The outdoor kitchenette and refrigerator made cooking our meals a breeze and we loved the sound system for playing music. The covered seating areas were great to hang out in when the sun was hot and would be really helpful if it rains. Lance and Roberta were very friendly and helpful. They gave us great directions and made sure we got settled and had everything we needed throughout our stay. The site felt secluded, but we were able to get to hikes and the grocery store in about 20 mins. We will definitely be back with more friends next time!

Thank you so much for staying at Handsome Hollow! We are incredibly happy that you enjoyed yourselves, our amenities and most importantly, had a great time! It was a pleasure meeting you and your friends! Thanks for being a respectful, kind and overall wonderful group. Also, thanks for leaving our camp in pristine condition. It means a lot and is truly appreciated. Thanks for being adventurous, and choosing to "hipcamp." We look forward to seeing you, your friends & possible newbie "hipcampers" next year (if not sooner), LOL. Our camp is your camp. Thanks for your visit! Your hosts, Lance & Roberta

Just wanted to wish you and your family a Happy New Year, 2020! Thank you so much for visiting our camp! We truly enjoyed meeting your family, along with their kindness and consideration. Your children's smiling, happy faces melted our hearts. We added a few new things, that may be of interest, some local walking trails and low key river access. Nice places to relax and destress! We hope to see you again and all is well! Lance and Roberta

We had a great time camping at Handsome Hollow. The site is amazing. We felt very welcome and the site had everything we needed. Our favorite part was the outdoor kitchen. Cooking on the grill with open fire was such a fun way to make amazing meals as a group while camping.

Although it would be easy to spend all of your time at the camp site, there is a lot to do locally too. We went for a beautiful hike at Jensen's Ledges and spent some time hanging down by the river.

Thanks for having us Lance and Roberta, can't wait to come back!

Camp Handsome Hollow is a killer campsite that I would recommend to any groups looking to escape the city for a few days to enjoy the Catskills. Lance and Robert and top tier hosts who were a blast to hang with and talk to all weekend, and they've really put the effort in to make their site a next level camping experience.

We had a group of around 10-14 throughout the weekend and the grounds were large enough to easily hold everyone's tents. The covered pavilion was great for eating dinner, and the outdoor kitchen was perfect for cooking burgers, dogs, and chicken fajitas.

The Delaware River is only a 6-8 min drive away, and we spent the afternoon floating in the river and hanging out on the shore. And then at night the camp fire area is perfect for hanging out and tying one off. Hopefully we can head back to Handsome Hollow next year, and again I'd highly recommend it!

I rented this site for a Bachelor party for my best friend and it was perfect. there were 10 of us and we never felt cramped or on top of each other. Amazing views and incredible amenities which strike the perfect balance of luxury and camping. There is also plenty of cover in case of rain so you don't have to huddle in your tent to stay dry. The hosts lance and Roberta are some of the most accommodating people I have ever met. I cant recommend this site highly enough and I plan to return with possibly a bigger group.
