Campers' Group is a club that organizes camping, cabin, hiking and ski trips, mostly
in NJ, NY, PA and CT, and within a three-hour drive of the NYC metro area. We welcome
singles, couples and families, experienced campers and newbies, to camp and hike with us.
Camp behind the dunes on this beautiful barrier island off the coast of Maryland. Wonderful wild ponies share the island with people! We have reserved an oceanside group site for the weekend. Vehicles can drive up near the site, unload, and park close by. There is a boardwalk to access the site. We can also meet at the canoe/kayak rental lot, and paddle on the calm bay side of the island. This trip is a longer drive than most. Join us for the long weekend! Cold showers and chemical toilets in the national park, hot showers in the adjacent state park. $15 entrance fee per vehicle. To arrange carpooling, contact a trip leader ASAP.
In the heart of the Catskills, Woodland Valley is a narrow rugged valley surrounded by some of the region's highest peaks: Panther, Slide, Cornell and Wittenburg. A trail from the campground leads to Slide Mountain. Hiking, mountain climbing, and bicycling. Near Woodstock. Quiet hours are 10 P.M. to 7 A.M. Flush toilets and hot showers.
Camp in the largest county park in Westchester (4,700 acres). You can bicycle on the park's roads, hike the trails or ride a horse. The Trailside Museum has specimen animals, Native American artifacts and an exhibit about the Leatherman. A nearby garden contains over 100 varieties of wildflowers. Birdwatching is also a popular activity. If you want to visit for the day, you just have to pay the entrance fee to the park ($10/vehicle). The bathrooms have toilets but no showers.
