No Camping Gear? No Car? No Problem!

Picture 1Wow!! Camping without a car? No camping gear? No problem! Welcome to Malouf’s Mountain Sunset Campground, a hike in, hike out, fully catered camping resort. We can supply you with almost everything needed to have a relaxing stay in the woods.

Whether coming from the south or north, enjoy a scenic train ride on the Metro North Hudson River Line. From the Beacon train station we will take you to the hike of your choice. Hikes range in duration from a half hour to five hours. While you hike in to the camp, enjoying the views, we transport your gear to the campground and place it at your site for your convenience.

Upon arrival, the first thing you’ll notice is the privacy of each site. You will find your fire pit for cooking. You will see your covered platform which is especially nice because you’re not stuck in your tent if it rains. There is also a cover over your fire pit. You can bring your tent or rent one of ours. Then, there is our chow box – it has everything you will need for your stay, from pots and pans to a pad of paper and a deck of cards.

We also have primitive sites for the more adventurous camper. For these, you bring all your gear.

In either case, wait until you see the bathhouse – hot showers on one side, flush toilets on the other, and in the middle, sinks for cleaning up and sinks for dishes. There are also two dryers in case your gear gets wet.

Of all the phrases used in our guest book to describe the campground, the phrase most used is “WE’LL BE BACK.”

So, what are you waiting for? Come stay with us. Just give us a call at 845-831-6767 or send us an email.
