Camping in the Catskill Mountains

Camping in the Catskill Mountains
If you are in the northeastern United States and looking to get away for some camping, you might want to try New York's Catskill Mountains. You will find several different camping locations, each with a variety of amenities. There is even one, the Jellystone Park Camp Resort, designed especially with children in mind. Whatever you are looking for, the Catskills probably have it.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park

The Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park is the perfect place if you want to go camping with younger children. You can bring your tent or RV, or you can rent one of the cabins on location. To keep your children occupied, you can take them to the man-made lake, which is stocked with bluegills and bass. You can rent one of the paddle boats or have some fun on the three-story playground equipment.

Bear Spring Mountain State Park

Bear Spring Mountain State Park is as different from the Jellystone as night and day. There are no huge man-made lakes or bear mascots. In fact, there really isn't any facilities. The park itself is especially designed for horseback riding, and there are over 24 miles of trails. If you are looking for a great adventure on your mountain bike or snowmobile, then Bear Spring Mountain State Park is exactly what you are looking for.

Beaver Spring Lake Campground

If you are looking for a place that 's out on its own but still allows you to take your boat or RV, Beaver Spring Lake Campground is for you. There are numerous complete RV hookups, as well as shower and laundry stores. A small store is on site to buy your needed supplies. If you don't have a boat, you can rent one to fish out on the water.
