THIS IS OUR LAST MULTI DAY CAMPING TRIP OF THE SEASON AND THE WEATHER IS LOOKING GREAT!: This trip is great for novice and seasoned campers alike because we supply almost everything you need! Celebrate Labor Day Weekend (SATURDAY-MONDAY) the right way with a great camping trip with fun people. We have the ultimate private campsite nestled on the shores of the pristine fresh water Hudson River near New Paltz, NY. We supply everything except a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow (private tents, sleeping bags and air mattresses are available, rental info below). You may drive directly to the campsite or take the train.
Vinecroft Estate has 26 acres of private secluded land on the shores of the Hudson River complete with a private dock, huge fire pit, boathouse, hiking trails, hammocks, horseshoe pits, BBQ’s, picnic tables, lounge chairs and more. There is nothing across the river but trees and nothing near the camp except the main house (10 minute walk). You will watch the sunrise each morning and be dazzled by the stars at night. Take the virtual campsite tour.
You can do all, nothing or something in between. Hiking, kayaking, swimming, canoeing, winery visits, relaxing by the river, delicious food, happy hours, conversations by the fire, games and more.
