Appalachian Trail historic campsite hideaway under an hour from NYC!

Cooke’s Creek has been called “the best camping adventure around” and we were recently featured in Hudson Valley Magazine for our “peace and solitude of the surroundings”. Our profits go to the “Stonewall Project” restoring the Revolutionary War-era stone walls that are part of the mill property.

•Please book as early as you can because we fill up fast!

Cooke’s Creek is nestled up against the Appalachian Trail within a forest preserve that housed the Grist and Saw Mill for the Hamlet of Hortontown on the Dutchess/Putnam line. We are an hour from Greenpoint and less than an hour from Manhattan.

You are next to streams, springs, a couple “swimming holes” and a historic church and cemetery.

You walk from your camp onto the Appalachian Trail! You are 5 minutes from the historic, organic orchard Fishkill Farms and eclectic Beacon, NY is only a 15-minute drive or Uber/Lyft away!

Plentiful firewood is included with your stay!

The campsite is equipped with a Queen-sized bunk bed!

SPECIAL NOTES: Our sister site on the preserve is known as Hopeland Rest. Look for it on this site if you want rent with friends and be close enough to have fun but far enough away to have your privacy!

We offer a 20% discount on weekday reservations. Please contact (888) 798-9093 prior to booking to take advantage of this promotion!
