Nestled in the prime location of the Catskills, Rondout Valley RV Camping is a great place to spend a few days, weeks, or even months. Located in the historic Hudson River Valley, a short distance from the beautiful Schawangunk Mountain range, Rondout Valley Resort offers campsites from basic to full hookup, as well as rental cabins to accommodate every type and level of camping. Enjoy fishing, hiking through the woods, or taking a stroll through the park at this scenic New York RV camp.
Checking in: They make it really easy with an online check-in system, so all your paperwork is ready when you arrive. The staff is friendly, although lack knowledge in some areas that we deemed quite important to understand. Case in point: When we arrived a few weeks ago (September 2020), there seemed to be sirens going off in the distance (sirens like you hear before a severe weather event like a hurricane or a tornado). When we phoned to the office, they seemed to not know about the sirens going off and didn’t know anything about severe weather warning system, which seems rather important to know. We lived in Hawaii and each month they tested the sirens for the tsunami early warning system.
The sites: Sites vary, but most of them are back in and have full hook ups. They are some pull throughs but I don’t believe those come with full hook-ups, but are W/E only. For more information, please download the RV Resort map below and call the resort directly. The first time we were there, we had a back in site by the river, which was nice and spacious and easy to get into. This time around we had a spot at the back of the park with lots of trees around, which was a bit of a challenge to get into. The trees are pine, which dripped a lot of sap onto our rig and the car, which was not ideal.
Laundry: When we first arrived at this beautiful campsite in June, all the public areas within the park were closed (including the restrooms, showers, and laundry). This time around (September 2020), all the facilities were opened with social distancing in mind and the mandate to wear masks in public areas was posted everywhere. Wash and dry was $2, which is a great price.
The park was still rather busy during the Columbus Day Weekend, with the park being almost completely booked.
I highly recommend coming here in the fall, when the foliage is absolutely stunning, and the weather is still sunny and warm.
Overall, a very nice, pet and family friendly campground with well maintained grounds and a great location for all of your outdoor adventures in the Catskills.
