I'm doing a favor for a friend and driving a 30 foot travel trailer rv across NY. I was on windy, narrow roads through the catskills all afternoon and my drive took much longer than expected (I don't normally drive trailers, I have a small car). I arrived to the campground a friend recommended at around 830pm and there was no way it would work. The sites were too small. Once I was down the long road at the campsite, there was nowhere to turn the trailer around so I headed towards Phoenicia. There was no service the entire drive, but I got one bar and saw Sleepy Hollow campground was about 15 minutes away. It was the only rv park in the area. It looked large and spacious on Google Maps, and by the time I got there, it was 1030pm. I drove around to the back office, seeing half of the rv park and saw tons of open space and some open sites! Yay! When I got to the office, I saw quiet hours didn't start until 11 (thank goodness, my friend's trailer is a little squeaky on dirty roads), and that I was supposed to go around to the greenhouse for check in. As I rounded the office building in the dark, I was greeted with a super bright flashlight right in my eyes and no words. The light just kept approaching me and I said while backing away, "Hello? You scared me!" and a man responded aggressively, "What the hell do you think you're doing" I gasped and continued to retreat while pointing behind me. Mind you, I am a small 5'6 woman alone in a pink shirt and there is a 30ft long 12ft wide travel trailer parked directly behind me. I feel like it was obvious what my goals were...? After continuing to shield my face from the bright flashlight and backing away from the threatening man I couldn't see, I started to explain my situation and told him I was alone and not used to driving big RVs, especially at night. I asked if I could pay for a site and I'd be out first thing in the morning. He didn't care at all, just said no. I said I didn't need hook-ups, just a place to park. He said nothing. I asked if he knew of any other campgrounds or rv parks and he said there was a parking area on the side of the road by the railroad tracks. I asked him if it was safe and he said rudely, "I don't know, there's stuff parked there sometimes." [I went and checked it out, it's on the side of the highway and there is no one else there, no lights, no buildings, no phone service to call 911 if something happens, pretty sketchy] I reiterated I was alone and nervous and not used to the RV and he was silent. I waited another second, no response, and I started to walk back to my friend's truck, fumbling with the keys (because they're not mine and I couldn't find the unlock button). I looked back at him again, and he didn't say a word. Just stood there staring at me. It was one of the rudest, shortest, and coldest interactions I've ever had with someone. As I drove slowly through the other half of the campground, towards the exit, I saw so many places to park I couldn't count. Just near the exit, there were at least 3 or 4 open sites, and a long extra wide dirt road that several campers could have fit on. This miserable and scary man turned me away simply because he felt like it. Not only did he not care about another human's safety, specifically a woman alone at night, but he also was aggressive, ill-mannered, and nasty. Beware, and don't go hear looking for refuge or a friendly face.

This place is so cute and we almost didn't stay because of a few bad reviews. I think the reviews were just people having a few bad guests.... but not the camp itself. The camp is amazing. Really really clean, tons for kids to do and the staff was amazing. You can get sights that are very wooded, or not. Up to you. We were there during pandemic and everyone kept their distance really well - which made it easy for us!

I camped for 3 days here at the beginning of September and can confirm some of the comments from other reviewers. The site is very well managed and the owners are friendly and welcoming. The toilets and showers are basic but they they are perfectly functional and they are kept clean and tidy. A 5 minute shower costs 25c. Other people using the site were also friendly. The site sits between the river and the highway so inevitably there can be some traffic noise but it was never enough to bother me. There is a decent diner across the road from the site and village of Phoenicia is just a mile away with a selection of restaurants and shops. There is a basic supermarket there and also a deli (deli closed on Monday so I didn’t get a chance to try it). There is a larger supermarket with more fresh food a few miles from the campsite in the other direction. I used the site as a base for doing some walks in the Catskills and it all worked out fine for me.

I was travelling the Catskills by motorcycle, and this campground proved to be the right place at the right time. Touring on Rte 28, the Sleep Hollow campground is just in the right place to start a trip in the morning. It is close to town for camping items if needed, gas is there, and restaurants if you need them. I had a great night, a good camp fire, and a good rest.

No cable and the Wi-Fi is sketchy. Worked about 80% for me. Better campsite for adults then a family with children; unless they like to fish and splash in the Esopus Creek that runs along the campground. For adults it is a peaceful location to relax and watch the fly fishermen cast for trout. Most sites are located along the creek. Each site has a firepit and firewood is inexpensive. Bathroom are clean, if basic. You'll need a quarter to take a shower. The campsite is well located for tourist travel throughout the area. I recommend breakfast at the Phonecia Diner, just across Route 28 from Sleepy Hollow. My wife and I enjoyed our stay.

Spent a weekend at Sleepy Hollow Campground and really enjoyed a quiet and relaxing few days. As stated before the campground sits on the beautiful Esopus creek. The water is so clear you can see the bottom. We watched people tube, fish and swim. Our site sat just above the water and was a climb down on the rocks that line and protect the banks. There are 3-4 areas where creek access is much easier. Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains on all sides the sun rises and sets over these mountains making for beautiful skies. The sites are large and have water and electric. There is a dump tank behind the bathrooms on the way out. The bathrooms were clean and large. The owner was friendly and accommodating offering to lend us the needed adaptor for the 50 amp electric on the site. If you are looking for high tech and high energy this is not the campground for you, but if you can enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings in a simple yet friendly atmosphere you will be at home. There is wifi available at and near the office as well as a Verizon booster, other telephone carriers are hit or miss and at times nonexistent unless you drive a few miles down the road to the nearest town. We are looking forward to returning again this season.

This is a small campground with large and clean, level sites. Some sites are right along the Esopus Creek. This place is very quiet. There is not much for kids, but that probably explains the quietness. Not many amenities, but we were camping without kids, so we didn’t need much. The owner was very helpful and friendly. We didn’t go inside the bathrooms, so I can’t comment on their cleanliness, but if they’re like the rest of the place, they’re probably spotless.

This campsite is BEAUTIFUL and very clean. If your looking for some good-ol camping this is the perfect place. Just a heads up for anyone with kids- there is no cable hook up and the wifi is in and out so if you need to make any calls or need to go online you may not be able to and most likely will have to go to town to do so. That is the only reason i gave it a 4 instead of a 5. But not having wifi got my 9 year old out of the camper and in the fresh air so its not always a bad thing to be "disconnected".

The sites are grass or gravel, no real pads, but they are level and well spaced out. The grounds are quiet with lots of grass and trees around the perimeter. No cell service, but the wifi worked great. No sewer, 30amp electric. Lots of trees making satellite difficult, but we got our portable dish into an opening that worked. The roads are a bit rough, but if easy to negotiate. There aren't a lot of good choices for larger trailers in this area and this is a pretty and comfortable place.

We arrived Friday afternoon and left Sunday at around 11:00. This campground is privately owned and well maintained. There are no golf carts and crowds. Many of the sites are on the Esopus Creek and the others are close. The campground is nestled in the Catskill mountains with 360 degree mountain views. Fish jumping in the stream. Last trip we saw a bald eagle fly up the stream, the eagle has a nest nearby. The owners and everyone at the campground were very friendly. If you are looking for some relaxation, this is the place. Water & electric hookups for campers and they have a dump station.
