You want mountains and mouth-wateringly beautiful views? Kenneth L. Wilson campground serves up a hefty portion of both, so come with a healthy appetite for adventure (or hardcore chillin'.) The campsites are perfect for tent campers and trailers alike, and they’re divinely wooded for ultimate seclusion. Groups can reserve the picnic shelter for a fun outing, followed by a rousing game of horseshoes at the horseshoe pits. If you can tear yourself away from relaxing at your perfect campsite, don’t miss out on inner tubing down the river!

We should all be thanking that ol' Kenneth Wilson guy for the supremely wonderful campground. Kudos, Ken!

Nice, clean campground in a great location! We went into the cute town of Phoenicia, to Kaaterskill Falls (about 45 min drive) and to Hunter mountain to zip line! Only downfall is a TON of poison ivy so if you're allergic I'd be careful staying here.

Breakfast on the fire. Another breakfast shot with the sun shining in Chili dogs! Swimming in the nearby Esopus Creek in Phoenicia

I solo camped here when I got a few days off work last minute. The ranger helped me pick a site that was more private where I was able to set up my hammock and camp and then spend my days exploring the Catskills. Pro-tip: skip the forums and ask the locals for their favorite swimming holes, but keep quiet about them so they stay pristine! Also, don't leave without having breakfast at Phoenicia Diner. You won't regret it!

Right before I took this photo, a raccoon tried to steal my cellphone off of that picnic table. Keep your food and devices locked up! Local swimming hole! 🙊Giant Ledge! A nearby hike that can't be beat. The concrete box is your fire pit with grill.

The campsites are large and private, sounded by trees and bushes. Each campsite has it's own grill pit and picnic table. The bathrooms aren't updated but satisfactory. Great location, close to the town of Phoenicia and Peekamoose Blue Hole.

Bring your own fire grate, as theirs are very widely spaced, like 2" wide.

If i could rate this place less than 1 star i would, i would never recommend this place to anyone. I drove 3 hours from long island because the reviews and the photos i had seen. Showed up at 12:15 and left by 1:45 and rather drive for another 3 hours then stay there for the night. I have been to campgrounds all over the states and i have never been so disgusted with how the sites look. The site i picked was so small and the trees were so over grown everywhere, which made it so hard to enjoy because your constantly ducking branches. I only came with one other and myself and i felt the camp site was way to small, how could i ever have brought more friends. I'm not one to write a negative review but i wish i read this from someone else before
