This is an ideal getaway from New York City; accessible on public transport and tailored to suit any level of camp comfort. You can choose how long you spend hiking in, if you want a covered platform site (complete with kitchen setup!) and can hire a tent if need be. Nestled between trees each site feels secluded but has a decent setup for a few people to sit round the fire. Would definitely would like to come back with a group for a weekend, perhaps in the Fall for the colors!
If you are planning on doing Hike #2 or #3 I would recommend getting a trail map as it is easy to get lost or switch trails, but totally worth it. The hike up to the Mt Beacon Fire Tower is pretty epic, as is the old incline rail track dotted with cool old ruins.

I had a wonderful time at Malouf Mountain. This is very much a catered campground - you can make it as rugged or as accommodating/comfortable as you like. My partner and I packed all of our food in, but we did end of purchasing a s'mores package our last night. It was also very helpful that they sell ice on site for $2/bag.

I really enjoyed the opportunity of checking out the trails neighboring the campground (as recommended by Dick, the owner), as well as the opportunity to go into the town of Beacon to do some kayaking.

I cannot say enough about the bathrooms/showers... hands down the nicest, cleanest, and most spacious I have ever encountered while camping!

One word of consideration - some of the platform sites have a pretty steep upward climb. If you are physically fit it should not be an issue, but it is something to keep in mind when booking your site!

We loved our stay and hiking in and around Malouf’s Camp. Dick Malouf and his staff were gracious hosts. For long time expérienced campers it was a treat not to have to bring our own gear and to stay very dry when it rained.

We had a perfect experience with Malouf’s Mt. Campground. The hosts were welcoming and accommodating, the area was beautiful, and the campsites and facilities were in great condition. Dick provides everything you could need as a camper. Our site was stocked with plates, cookware, utensils, matches, a deck of cards, clean up supplies, and even basic seasonings for cooking. We opted for the 30 minute hike which was a bit challenging because you are actually hiking up the mountain, but the scenery is beautiful and you feel accomplished walking into camp. My favorite part was lying in our tent listening to the rain, with no worries about getting wet because we were on the roofed platform, and making pancakes on the small stovetop in the morning while listening to the creek running by. It was a relaxing escape and we will definitely return!

Home for the weekend!The platform had plenty of room for our massive tent.The platforms are fully stocked with everything you need to cook camp meals.Cooking breakfast 🥞

Besides not having near places to enjoy, my daughter got poison ivy, I called and let them know my poor kid missed her first day of school. If you don't know how or don't want to hike this is not for you, it was an struggle for me personally going to the bathroom since is so far down and going back. The staff and place are keep clean and they are friendly.
