Description

Description: Woodland Valley is nestled in at the end of a valley. Hiking trails abound, leading to Wittenberg, Slide and Cornell Mountains. Slide Mountain is the tallest peak in the Catskills, so hiking it from here is a truly amazing experience. The park's campsites are mostly wooded, with some campsites located along a small stream. The campground is a peaceful place to relax after a day of hiking or fishing.

Geography:

Nestled at the foot of Slide Mountain, the tallest peak in the Catskills, and surrounded by Panther, Cornell, and Wittenberg Mountains, is Woodland Valley Campground.

Recreation:

The campground serves as the trailhead for the Slide-Wittenberg Trail (the Burroughs Range) and the Woodland Valley-Denning Trail, which provides access to the Giant Ledge-Panther Mountain Trail.

Facilities:

The park offers tent and trailer sites, a picnic area with tables and grills, flush toilets, hot showers, a trailer dump station, a recycling center, and a pay phone, most of which are handicapped-accessible.

Nearby Attractions:

The nearby village of Phoenicia offers tubing on the Esopus Creek, which is famous for its trout fishing; a railroad museum; train rides on the Catskill Mountain Railroad; shops; and restaurants.
