It was a nice little campground. The people who checked us in were very friendly and helpful. The campground was clean and a nice amount of space. The showers in the bathroom were great and lots of hot water. We were there on a weekend though, and there was quite the party on Friday night, so Saturday morning, there was vomit all over the bathrooms. It got cleaned up very quickly though. We didn't have bears on any of the nights we were there, though we did hear from the rangers that there were bears on our first night there in a different loop. The volleyball net stinks, so don't expect to play a real game.
The real attraction about this place - and the real reason I will come back again and again - is the hiking. There is an abundance of trails of varying levels of difficulty. And the views are just unbelievable. There are easy hikes up to the Catskill Mountain House, and if you're willing to try something a little more difficult, there are plenty of amazing ledges and vistas. I highly recommend making the hike to Kaaterskill Falls (from both the bottom and the top, which is two separate hikes), Eagle Ledge, and Newman's Ledge.
