We loved staying here. A great place to put a tent explore an old railroad line and jump in a river. Vilem and family are really nice too!

We had a wonderful stay at Vilem’s. He and his family were warm hosts who made us feel very welcome. The site was well-kept and right on the Catskill scenic trail. We borrowed bikes from Vilem and rode on it for miles, and the scenery was stunning. The site is also right on the west branch of the Delaware, and the sound of the river flowing past made for peaceful days and evenings. You can easily jump in and take a swim if you’re so inclined on a hot day. Highly recommended!

What a magical spot!
We had crackling fires at night and woke to mist over the small orchard. .Vilem and family really went above and beyond, and are genuinely lovely people. We could not have felt more welcome.
The location is surrounded by green farmland and backed by a trail and the river. Running, biking, swimming, hiking, etc... are all right there. It is only a few miles from Delhi, which has shops, restaurants, and a gas station.
We would return in a heartbeat.

Vilem and Rebecca were great hosts! They checked in with us ahead of time to confirm directions, and showed us around the site when we arrived. It was exactly as described - we had a little private access to the creek, fire pit and a small grill pit for charcoal, and plenty of space to set up the tent and park. Vilem left extra firewood at the site, which was a really nice surprise.

The site was right next to the Catskills trail, which was great for running/biking, though meant cyclists passed the site during the day and a few 4x4s at night. There were enough trees between the site and the trail for privacy. Tons of activities/restaurants/hikes nearby, and lots of beautiful creek to explore! We saw trout, herons, and a huge snapping turtle in the creek (~15 inches long!). Lovely weekend getaway!

Private spot in an orchard close to a tributary of the Delaware River, and right off the 26 mile Catskill Scenic Trail. The host family is wonderful and went out of their way to help us out. There are plans for a site in a hayfield next summer which sound great.

Vilem was a gracious host and I felt like I was speaking with a long-term friend.

Location is wonderful: unmatched solar display, babbling creek, singing coyotes, and gorgeous views. It is a great respite from the busy metropolitan world.

Hope to return again!

Camping here was awesome. The location is great -- close enough by car to food sources, but isolated from people and villages as well if you come fully prepared. The site's dual fire pits and close proximity to the river (less than 100 yards) were useful for warmth, refreshment, and essential parts' bathing. The river is also beautiful and just a stone's throw away. The Catskills hiking trail being just off the site was an amazing bonus -- super convenient and even a bit magical.

As if the location weren't stellar enough, Vilem and Rebecca were cool, kind, and extremely accessible hosts. Their property is serene, beautiful, and lends itself well to camping. We had a really great time and can't wait to come back!
