Peekamoose Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"At the southern end of the Catskills, in the Sundown Wild Forest, lies the Peekamoose Valley, where three 2,000-foot peaks— Samson, Van Wyck, and Peekamoose Mountains— funnel water into Rondout Creek through a series of picturesque waterfalls. In the midst of all of this is a campground that, while administered by the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), is decidedly different from any of the Catskills’ other offerings. If you’re looking for a place to pitch your tent that’s somewhere between backcountry camping and primitive but is an established property such as Devil’s Tombstone (see page 25), then you’ll find this is your sweet spot (or 25 sweet spots, to be more exact)."
