This campsite sits 20 feet from the rushing water of the Shawangunk Kill and is surrounded by undeveloped forest.


The Heron Cove private campsite sits just a few yards from the Shawangunk Kill. The Shawangunk Kill is known for its clean water, and it teems with life.

The site is an easy 15 to 20 minute walk from the parking area. You will cross the Dwaar Kill by a primitive bridge and continue along a ridge and down a private trail to your site.

The Shawangunk Kill is usually not more that waist deep and is a great spot to float in an innertube or take a dip in a deep spot.

Each campsite includes a stone firepit, a supply of firewood for a nominal fee, and a portable camp toilet. We follow a carry in/carry out policy to minimize human impact on the forest.


Riverfront Camping

You're on a private campsite on a river. The sight and sound of it alone is refreshing. Take a dip, heat some coffee over the fire pit and enjoy breakfast on a fallen log.


Reach your campsite via a private trail. Enjoy 80 acres of undeveloped forest. Sit by a crackling fire and enjoy the sounds of the river.


On the property you will see bald eagles, woodpeckers, muskrats, and deer, just to name a few. On the river we also see ducks, geese, fish and an elusive beaver or two.
