After not being able to book a campsite at any NY State campground, we decided to take a chance and were pleasantly surprised by our stay at Woodland Getaway, Dreamland. It is very secluded and is indeed properly named. The hosts, Jessica and her husband, Greg were very amenable and helped us into their campsite area, even helping us carry some of our gear in during a pouring rainstorm. They have a covered dining area set up complete with tables, plates and utensils, and a gas stove. Also set up, out of the way, is a very efficient composting toilet. The woods and campsite was very peaceful, and we enjoyed it so much, we booked another weekend there as soon as we got back home.

Where do I start!
Dreamland is a very beautiful and special space. Jessica and her husband demonstrated outstanding hospitality; they were very down to Earth people. There are many different places to camp out in the woods, including a convenient space next to a small road with a functional outdoor bathroom. For the more ambitious, there are other potential places to set up camp deeper in the woods. The hike is not that long, but can be difficult because of a few hills.
My group wanted to be next to the river, so we set up camp near the water. To get to the river, we had to go down a hill (a few ropes along the path made it easy to balance).

The river was spectacular! There were flat rocks in the water that allowed you to stand up, as well as deeper parts where your feet could not touch the ground. A small rocky "island" in the middle of the river was really fun to sunbathe/relax. Swimming in nighttime was utterly magical. The stars shined brighter than the Sun, and all that is felt is peace, wonder, and gratefulness. Be careful on the way up, and make sure to bring flashlights.

There was firewood all around us, all we needed to do was walk and collect. If something was forgotten, (in our case it was a pan), somebody could drive into town and come back in less than 45 minutes. We felt very private, safe, and carefree in our campsite.
I took my time with this review to demonstrate how lovely, and above all, magical this place was. I have nothing bad to say. I expect to come back.

Dreamland is aptly named. While hiking on the property, my daughter and her friend and I felt transported to a magical forest of mushrooms and green moss where fairies might live. Our hosts Jessica and Greg were super nice and very attentive. We basically car camped this time close to the entrance, but definitely would come again and backpack down to the Esopus Creek, which was huge and had rushing water and set up camp down there. All in all it was a lovely experience and I would definitely recommend it!

Our weekend at Dreamland definitely lived up to expectations based on the previous reviews. No one else happened to be staying there that weekend, so aside from Jessica and her family (who are lovely), we were completely alone. Once you're there it feels secluded and quiet (although it is quite close to town, so a train and some trucks can be heard from your campsite). We had the option to set up camp closer to where we parked, but opted to hike our belongings 10-15 minutes so we could be closer to the creek which was lovely as we could hear (and see) the rushing water from our tent. My one disappointment was that when we arrived we were advised not to swim in the creek because of septic runoff from recent heavy rainfall. Aside from no swimming, I would definitely recommend this site as the grounds are beautiful. If you hope to swim, I'd check in about any water advisories before you book.

Jessica & Greg were very friendly & accommodating hosts, communication was easy & the campsite was totally private in the forest overlooking a river. The site is a bit of a walk (10+ mins) from the parking area with some topography - so bring shoes with treads. Composting toilet is also at the top. The creek was beautiful but no swimming due to recent conditions. Overlook Mountain and/or Kaaterskill Falls only 30 min drive away. All in all a wonderful retreat from NYC. We brought a hammock and cooked our meals over a campfire, enjoyed stargazing, peace & quiet. Highly recommend!

We spent one night in October on Jessica's property- she met us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of the property to help us decide where to camp. There are several sites that range from a 1 minute to 10 minute hike in from parking. There was one other couple camping on the same night and we could not see or hear them from our site. Our dog had a great time off-leash. To get down to the river, you have to descend a steep face, but there is a rope to help get up and down. There is a compost toilet available if needed. Our site was clean, peaceful, and private. Our only issue with the site was a loud train that blew its horn as it passed throughout the night- it may have been quieter if you camped closer to parking. We hiked around beautiful Kaaterskill Falls the next day, which was an easy 30 min drive away.
