Winter camping notes: When temps are below freezing, we will put out hand sanitizer in lieu of the five gallons of water and soap for hand washing. When its cold, the outside water is turned off so if you need the drinking water refilled, just let me know. The camp stove will keep the tent warm but needs more wood added every hour or so. Plan accordingly. We've been a Tentrr site since summer of 2018 and have hosted well over 500 campers at our site! Wooded campsite accessible through sheep pasture, it's about 200 yards from the parking spot to the Tentrr site. Here's whats included: - All of the standard Tentrr stuff (two queen air mattresses, picnic table, camp stove, camp toilet, etc) including a full 5 gallon cooler of potable water, 5 gallons of water for hand washing or hand sanitizer when its cold, a solar shower, and three tiki torches (but without oil). We also include toilet paper, camp bowls, cups, silverware, and plates for 8, one stainless pot, and one large stainless skillet. Plenty of firewood will be provided at the camp site along with fire starting materials (fatwood sticks, paper, cardboard, and lighters). Our site is very close to Southeast Station (Harlem Line). We are right off the Putnam and Maybrook Trailways that make up part of the Empire State Trail (one could bike all the way here for bike camping from NYC), I-84/I-684, merely an hour or so from the city! Lots to do nearby including: - Ice Pond Preserve Hiking and Bouldering within walking distance (great bouldering location!) - Kayaking in the Great Swamp of Patterson NY, White Pond in Kent, NY, and Constitution Marsh in Cold Spring along the Hudson River - Hiking in numerous nearby parks like Fahnestock, Michael Ciaola, Ice Pond Conservation Area, etc. - Fishing and Fly Fishing in several area streams and lakes (NY fishing license required) - Mountain biking nearby including Ice Pond (only a mile away) - Road biking around popular trailways (Putnam and Maybrook Trailway) and nearby roads - Swimming in nearby White Pond As a warning, due to the proximity to Interstate 84, there is some background noise but it is minimal and cant be heard normally over the wind or a crackling fire! Addressing the two recent 3 star reviews: The tent canvas, which was replaced in October of 2020, has been replaced again with a brand new tent! I clean the deck floor inside the tent between every camper but this Summer and Fall have been so wet that the mud has stained the wood. If you get to the site and are unhappy about anything, please let me know!
The sheep are shy and will leave you alone - they are not aggressive. Please close the gates behind you and latch the chain, it doesn't have to be tight. No guns allowed on property, no hunting as well. Please don't drive into the field. Park outside the field at the Tentrr parking sign. A cart to haul your stuff is provided. No fireworks!
