The vibe at Woodland Get Away
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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!
