Nice clean and new campground. The sites are small and close together - good for crashing for the night and then climbing or hiking for the day. Super clean restrooms, group fire pit only. There were only 3 other people staying last Thursday.

My friend and I scored a free tentsite for the long weekend (thanks, Mountain Hardwear!) and wound up staying a second night because liked this location so much. The campground is one of the cleanest and better designed spots I've stayed. Every site has its own bear box, tent site, and picnic table, but we found ourselves enjoying the campfire or communal picnic area for meals instead. The manager was friendly and seemed genuinely invested in the happiness of every camper here--from young families to groups of experienced climbers.

We were looking for a last minute place to camp out and The Spot was just right. Great location right across from the West Trapps trailhead but close enough to town to grab a meal if you don't want to cook. Walk right in to Mohonk preserve or take a short drive to Minnewaska State Park for trail running, biking, swimming and much needed nature immersion. Would recommend!

This was a very clean and well maintained campsite. There are bathrooms, showers, and the staff lights a campfire in the evenings. It is right by the road, so very convenient, but not the most outdoorsy.
