DIRT ROAD CAMP

Opened in 2019, Dirt Road Camp began as a vision to create a serene, private and primitive campground that offers guests a true escape into the wilderness. 

 

You won't have other campers only a few feet away - our sites are spaced apart with acres of forest between groups - and you won't hear RV generators running all night (sorry, no RVs allowed). We are pet-friendly and encourage our guests to bring along their furry companions - no pet fees apply.

DRC provides firewood and several gallons of potable water to our guests (included in your reservation price).

By providing firewood we not only take a task off your list, but it's a good way to avoid invasive beetles and other issues.

 

As a bonus, cell phone signals are strong on our land (a rarity in the western Catskills). We can't broadcast wi-fi over our mountain and many acres, so the strong cellular signal means you can bring a speaker for music or your favorite movies to stream.

Our outhouses are clean, sanitary and environmentally responsible, and you will find divinity while taking an outdoor shower using harvested rainwater that is fully filtered. Please note the shower is closed in the winter from October through Memorial Day.

We fully realize that Dirt Road Camp isn’t for everyone. We are off-grid and off-road. Instead of electricity, we use solar power. Instead of paved roads, we have dirt roads. First Aid kits are on-site, on purpose, and basic survival skills are required.

 

To aid in giving others the necessary skills, Dirt Road Camp will be offering regular survival training sessions on-site, RSVPs required.

 

You’ll be hiking, playing and camping in the real Catskills woods, so come ready and ever cognizant that your actions may create risk of injury.

 

Be responsible, respectful of our land, nature and abundant wildlife. Bring your hiking boots, imagination, and desire to fully escape!

We want you to make your site your own, respect it and, please, offer us feedback on how to make the Dirt Road Camp experience even better!
