Labor Day Weekend Camping at Our Private Riverside Campsite: Sat-Mon

Description:

We are offering this special 2 night/ 3 day package (Saturday-Monday) for Labor Day Weekend. Our camping trips have become legendary for great times, great food and awesome people!  This trip is great for novice and seasoned campers because we supply almost everything you need!  We have the ultimate private campsite nestled on the shores of the pristine fresh water Hudson River near New Paltz NY.   You will avoid all the holiday traffic and take the train from Grand Central to Poughkeepsie, NY where your guide will meet you and bring you to the campsite where everything will already be set up for you.   We supply everything except a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow. (If you don't have a tent, tents are available for rent for $20. All tents are private unless you are traveling with a friend or significant other)

Vinecroft Estate has 13 acres of private secluded land on the shores of the Hudson River complete with a private dock, proper fire pit, boathouse, hiking trails, hammocks, horseshoe pits, BBQ's and more. (Take Campsite Video Tour) 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.   This is not a public campground it is our own little slice of heaven upstate.
