Richard, Tracy and Debbie are so friendly and easy to deal with. We secured our tent site through Hipcamp but finish the rest of the booking details with them via email. The campsite itself is beautifully maintained, the bathhouse is unlike any other state-owned campsites, so clean and nice! They also provide firewood, food options and even a tent if you don't have anything. We brought our own food cooler and gear, and they actually move all of your stuff to your campsite before they drop you off at the hike-in spot. You can decide how long you want to hike to the site, the forest is beautiful.

At the site, you can purchase ice, more wood if needed, and there is a little vending area with snacks. They even have a small library and will help you order pizza if you crave it. We love the experience so much that we're going to return again later this month!

Totally great all around operation that Dick is running. It's a beautiful hike in/hike out campground. We hiked in with our stuff, but the stuff-shuttle is a perk for the less backpackery folks. The sites are well spread, and the primitive site we were at was over looking a lovely sloping woods where the sunset through the woods over the Hudson. The site was a good size, the bathrooms and other facilities are clean and just what you need. A la carte food like sweet potatoes, chicken are available for cheap to cook over your firepit. Bonus, no CARS. Love the quietness yet not far from civilization.

Plus! Beautiful hikes abound right from the camp trail! Just challenging enough hiking, great woods and overlooks. Poles recommeneded:) Hike into town for delicious dinner. Cab it back to the trail. Repeat. ;-)

Honestly we werent sure, because correspondence at first seemed to be all about what we were gonna be charged extra--taking the shuttle/not (6/per person), taking a cab/not (6/pp), want stuff driven to site/not(3/pp). But if Their HipCamp description listed these, with prices(!) upfront that'd take away that feeling of being squeezed. In any case that discomfort INSTANTLY disappeared once we got onsite. The Malouf Mountain Campground is DOPE/GREAT/A RETREAT. Go. Enjoy. Relax.

This was my first camping experience sleeping in a tent. I took my eight year old son. This place exceeded all my expectations. I didn't want to invest in a tent and all that is needed to camp outdoors. I live in an apartment in Brooklyn and every nook and cranny is full. Richard and everyone there gave us a warm welcome. We were dropped at the 30 minute hike trails. Once we were dropped we heard rumblings of thunder. 10 minutes in it poured a torrential storm. By the time we arrived my son and I were fully drenched. That was the first of many wonderful experiences I will never forget or my son. This is worth every cent. I will definitely go back. My only pet peeve is not being able to bring my dog but I understand why.

Malouf's is beautiful! Unfortunately we got caught in some post-Harvey rain which lasted most of the weekend, but the limited hiking we were able to do was excellent, albeit very uphill. Dick, Tracy, Deb, and Bryan were all incredibly friendly and willing to help with any issues we had (which were pretty much none). This is a perfect spot for anyone like me and my friends who live in NYC, love camping, but don't have a car.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and fell in love. The campsite was just what we were looking for - clean, quiet and primitive. Everyone was friendly and the 30 min hike was just enough for us. The facilities for shower and bathroom are the nicest I've ever seen on a campground. Will gladly stay here again and do plan to on the platforms they offer next time!

Had a really great time at the campsite! Sites feel very secluded, clean and well maintained. You have the experience of hiking in (can choose between a 5hr, 2hr and 30min hike in), but still have the amenities of a bathhouse and campfire. This is a great site for folks who live in NYC and want an easy way to access the outdoors. I would also recommend to first time campers!

Super great weekend spent here! There were more campsites than we expected, and they are all pretty close together. Also, they're set on a VERY steep hill, so if you're at the top, getting up and down to the bath house (at the bottom) can be exhausting. But those are minor points compared to the proximity to wonderful hiking trails, great site staff, well-maintained site, and clean bath house. Overall a great experience!

We had a great stay! We did the 2.5hr hike in, it was super pretty and quiet. Wild blueberries growing along the trail and a breathtaking view of the river and the Valley from the top. Our campsite was private and the other campers were nice. The bathroom showers and other amenities were super clean and easy to access. Our hosts were cheerful, helpful and all pick ups/ drop offs went smoothly!

Dick and his crew were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The site was secluded yet close to the bath house, which was clean and had everything we needed. We definitely plan on returning in the future.
