This was a delightful newly renovated campground under new ownership it has apparently undergone a metamorphosis to a modern resort with all the amenities you would expect. We stayed for the summer and consider it a must when visiting the Catskills in the Hudson Valley. It has spacious shaded sites, unlike other campgrounds where they stack you like firewood in open sites to bake in the sun. The pond with paddle boats and fenced pool were pleasant places to chill during those dog days of summer. I highly recommend So-Hi to anyone who wants a bargain on camping in NY. I suspect the pricing will increase as this jewel is discovered by more campers willing to take the road less traveled! We camped here in a Motorhome.
As the owner is very nice the park in general is not maintained. Seasonal trailers seem to have been left behind years ago. Our view was of a trailer in complete disrepair and with trash stashed in all sorts of places. The sewer hookups are into barrels buried under your site. The water was not drinkable. Wi-Fi didn't make to our site. Pool looked clean and newer. Store was bare. My fiance noted this would make a great location to film a horror movie. (please accept this as my humor) Campground has or had potential. We are new to RVing (five previous and wonderful campgrounds) and this was by far a learning experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall, the campground was not in great shape. Our first and primary concern was hygiene. The water was brown and undrinkable. We had to buy gallon jugs of water for cooking and drinking. Sewer hookups were into buried 55-gallon drums. Part of our drum was visible in our site. So these drums rust, don't they. What might have been leaking into the ground? Is this legal? Many sites are abandoned and very shabby. The owners don't maintain them at all. Many of the cement pads are covered in mold and pine needles, and there are disgusting abandoned trailers. The place was very buggy--plenty of weeds around. When we got there on Monday, the shower stalls were covered in dead bugs. Fortunately, they were cleaned that afternoon although bugs did return throughout our stay. At least the water in the bathhouse was fine. Some good things included a nice pool, no problem running our AC, free Wi-Fi, large sites, friendly owner (although rarely in the office, they live near the entrance), $6.00 gets you a large bundle of wood, and a few noisy seasonal people; otherwise a quiet place. According to one of the seasonal folks, at one time the campground had really been very nice. When the seasonal folks began leaving (many had died), the owners just let the place go. Too bad, it really has potential. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
