Woodland Valley State Campground

If you’re considering a trip to the Catskills and you’re looking for a basic, no-frills campground that is located in the heart of the Catskill’s high country, then you might want to consider spending a night at the State run Woodland Valley Campground.

The Campground is located in Ulster County and sits near the base of Slide Mountain, which at 4,180 feet is the highest peak in the Catskill Mountains. Other nearby mountains include the peaks of Wittenberg and Cornell and Panther Mountain. Woodland Valley Stream flows through the campground and just to the south is the Esopus River, which provides white-water rafting and tubing opportunities. Further out from the campground are several different attractions including the village of Phoenicia, ski areas at Hunter Mountain and Bellayare Mountain and the village of Arkville where you can catch a ride on the Ulster and Delaware Rail Ride.
