A hiker’s paradise, North/South Lake Campground is the ultimate base camp for all kinds of adventures. Here you’ll find incredible overlooks, the tallest waterfall in New York (Kaaterskill Falls), cool historic ruins, and miles and miles of trails, both rugged and meandering. The campground itself is a popular destination, but you’ve got plenty of room to spread out. There are two lakes to swim in, fish to catch, and boats to rent. Plus some killer mountain biking trails if you’re feeling brave!

One of my favorite campgrounds in the area. Yes, there are 100+ sites but the location is well worth it, as are the hot showers. Pick loop 7 to be further away from the crowds. I try to camp here every year during fall foliage, and the colors are just fantastic. Not to mention the number of hikes one can do directly from the campground.

The towns of Hunter and Tannersville are close by for some fine dining and non-hiking entertainment. You can also take a ski lift to the top of Hunter Mountain or try their zipline. Opus 40 is another neat nearby attraction, as is the Hudson River School of Art Trail. Landscapes painted by Thomas Cole were inspired by locations right around the corner from the campground.

Can get very crowded and loud -- but the location and hiking is very scenic.

If you want some last-minute Jiffy-Pop or firewood, check out the cute general store located at the entrance to the lake!
