I almost don’t want to give as rave a review as the experience was, only for the selfish reason to keep the amazing spot to ourselves: Gary was extremely kind and easy going. His land is absolutely gorgeous. The only thing is it’s a bit of a hike, but trust me it’s worth it. But be prepared for that. We’ll definitely be coming back time and time again.

Gary was an amazing host. The area was the definition of peaceful. We particularly enjoyed the privacy. This campsite is everything it is advertised to be and more. Highly recommend.

What a beautiful place to camp, it far exceeded our expectations. Just 2.5h out the NYC it is the perfect place to come escape the city, There are several water falls and swimming holes on the property. We spent the whole weekend hiking the property and exploring. We will defiantly be coming back

Jean Fall’s is truly a slice of heaven. The property is amazing and tranquil. It was secluded and a perfect escape. We spent our days exploring waterfalls, hiking, finding frogs and fish, cooking over a fire and soaking up everything the property had to offer. We could have easily spent a week here. The space is rustic with no running water, electricity or plumbing. But this only adds to the charm. You can truly unplug here and relax. It was exactly what we needed.

The one challenge with this location is the parking vs camping at the falls. It is definitely a challenging hike in and out. The path is very muddy and there is an extremely steep incline to get to the stream campsites. Gary does say you are welcome to camp anywhere on the property, but the true charm and experience of this site is the stream and falls. If you are okay parking near the road and setting up camp there yes it’s true parking at the site. However if you are looking to camp near the falls be prepared to backpack camp, bringing just the bare necessities to avoid multiple trips to the car. But once you are set up. There’s no reason to leave, everything you could want is right there.

As a family of 5 with 3 littles under 8 we were taken off guard by the walk and incline. Honestly we come with a lot of stuff. (Diapers and formula alone for 3 days is a lot). We definitely didn’t pack the right things and could have prepared better if we knew the landscape of getting to the campsite from the car. The only way you are getting close to the steam spot is by hiking or with a true 4x4 or off roading Vehicle.

Overall this space is a dream and the space itself more then make up for the difficulty getting in. Just be prepared properly.

This is 25 acres of completely undeveloped forest. A very picturesque stream complete with waterfalls runs through it, the best sites being on the banks by the water. Very peaceful. Feels more like backcountry camping in the Adirondacks than the Catskills. My only complaint was that you need to hike in, and I wasn't packed for backpacking in. There is a steep decline down to the best sites by the stream that is difficult with awkward/heavier items. However if you go in expecting a hike and pack appropriately -- the area is gorgeous, the hike is relatively short (10 mins), and it is well worth it. Gary is communicative and a nice guy. Just ask about the hike!

Gary has a really great piece of land. He even stopped in to make sure everything was going okay. You’re closer to town than you think, but you honestly can’t tell as soon as you drive back. There’s a beautiful set of water falls and we were able to bathe and swim. It is a very primitive site but that’s what we were looking for. Tons of rocks to build a big ring, and lots of space. Thanks so much Gary!

This is one of the most perfect settings for camping imaginable! The falls are beautiful and the woods surrounding them provide a lot of privacy. Definitely need 4WD to get into certain sites, but I personally enjoy off-roading so it added to the fun! There’s a lot of space and many places to set up camp. I’d suggest packing light to give yourself the most options for finding a site - we found some amazing sites further from the car, but didn’t want to lug all our gear. We’ll definitely be returning and definitely recommend it!

A beautiful place to camp. It was a little difficult to find the campsites, but once we settled into our spot, we were very happy.
