Covered Bridge Campsite will be alerted immediately and will approve your reservation after checking availability.
Covered Bridge Campsite is located in the Western Catskills of Sullivan County, NY. Our property features nearly a mile of creekfront on the famous Willowemoc! It is a peaceful, wooded, and family-oriented campground offering nearly 26 acres of natural beauty, surrounded by 500 acres of the Catskill Forest Preserve.
Campers have been returning for decades to enjoy our great fishing, hiking and waterfalls steps from the campsites. We offer creekfront campsites for RVs and tents with varying levels of privacy, perfect for those needing to escape for a while.
There are three separate tenting areas, some offering parking and drinking water directly at the site and others are completely primitive walk-in sites with water and dishwashing sinks nearby. RV and camper-trailer sites offer 20 or 30 amp electric and water.
Our campground has clean restrooms with free hot showers.
Covered Bridge Campsite is open May through October for Camping
Open Dates: November 1 to October 31
On March 18, 2009 the NY DEC enacted a regulation to protect our forests from destructive invasive species. This is to stop invasive, exotic tree insects and diseases from further spreading in our state. In short, the regulation... -Prohibits transporting firewood within New York more than 50 miles from its source. -Leave firewood home - unless you live within 50 miles.

WATERFALL TRAIL: Walk over the covered bridge and on the left is the Angler's parking lot. Behind it, cross the little creek (not the Willowemoc) and follow the creek and path up the mountain. The path separates but always comes back together. Path ends at a 20' waterfall. You will see several smaller waterfalls along the path. This a family friendly hike.
RIVERSIDE TRAIL: Cross the Covered Bridge, on the left, follow the dirt path along the river. This is approximately a 1 mile hike following the Willowemoc Creek.
FISHING: Ages 16 & up must have a NY State Fishing License
Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to post a review. We apologize that your campsite didn’t live up to your expectations. We hope you can understand that the campground was recently put under new management (a few weeks before you arrived) and the new owners will be investing $200,000+ over the next couple of off-seasons to improve the facilities. In fact, we have already completed significant tree work and removal to make the sites more accessible to RVs. We hope you will come back next year to see the renovations and improvements!
We are sorry to hear that the stay didn't live up to your expectations. We recently took over management and are planning significant renovations to the facilities. We are happy that you were able to use our WiFi and consult with our manager on nearby attractions and places to see, though. It seemed like were having a good time when you were here!
Thank you! We look forward to hosting you again.
