My partner and I stayed at Camp Moonchild, campsite #2, over the 4th of July weekend. It’s situated near the town of Grafton, NY on private land near several lakes and forests. The location is great for hiking and kayaking, and is close to Troy and Albany so you can explore the towns as well!
When we arrived at the camp, our host (Ricardo) met us at the parking area and gave us a tour of the space so we wouldn’t get lost. The camp is very new so he’s still improving the road in but it’s beautiful land! Campsite #2 is about 0.3 miles up the road from the parking area so make sure you factor that into your packing. However, Ricardo was very helpful and took most of our things up to the campsite in his 4-wheeler!
The campsite was set up with a fire pit, log stools, tiki torches to ward off mosquitos, a log table, and a trash can. We could see the stars and hear fireworks for miles! Ricardo made sure we were all set with a walkie-talkie if we needed to reach him, a 50-gallon drum of fresh, filtered well water (DELICIOUS), lighter fluid and dry firewood, and an air horn in case we needed to scare off any animals (we didn’t). He really made the campsite very special and I would recommend staying here 100%!

Beautiful fern “shelf” just behind the fire pit!Campsite #2!Space to cowboy camp if you want!Beautiful germs surrounding the campsite

It was a pleasure to have you stay at our camp. We couldn’t have asked for better campers on our first booking. Caitlin and Alex, you were just wonderful and very pleasant. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we are definitely looking for ways to improve our camp so please come visit us again!! Thank you.

Our host Ricardo knew we were celebrating my birthday that weekend, and upon arrival he and his daughter had these awesome balloons waiting at our campsite! So thoughtful! The site was incredibly private, with SO many acres of trails to explore. Wooded site but perfect mix of sun and shade throughout the day. About a 300m hike uphill from the parking area to the site (site 2), but if you don't mind the exercise it's a good climb! Would definitely consider staying here again. :)

Camp MoonChildDoggos were definitely tuckered out after all their exploring!So much great space. Camp MoonChild
