The Perfect Catskill Weekend

in Catskills, CampLife

Here is your itinerary:

Whether you’re a hardcore outdoors fan or a annual outdoors enthusiast, a Tentrr campsite will keep everyone happy. Here are a few suggestions for planning the perfect Labor Day weekend adventure.

It might seem impossible to fit all the fun things the Catskills have to offer into one weekend and you’d be right, but we are here to help with a few suggestions. One weekend is the perfect amount of time to get a taste of what the Catskills have to offer and leave you wanting more, you just have to know where to go and what to look for.

Day 1:

Hop in the car for a road trip to your Tentrr campsite, stopping along the way to fill up on some diner food. We chose the Phoenicia Diner along the way for the best diner brunch ever.


Once you arrive to your campsite, with a full belly, your campsite will already be set up for you so you don’t have to worry about that. Maybe go make the bed with your cozy blankets that you brought and put the drinks on ice, just to get things ready for later.

What you really need to do at this point is put your swimsuit on and head to the water, in our case it was Schoharie Creek, for a major dose of vitamin D.


We decided to follow this up with an intense game of KanJam, if you’ve never heard of this game, it’s time to revert your attention to google and thank us later.


It’s nearly dinner time at this point so better start the campfire and get ready for some grub.


You’ll then settle in for the best night of sleep in your life, the sweet sounds of nature, the glimmering stars overhead and the cozy blankets you are snuggled up in all make for the perfect snooze.

Day 2:

Waking up refreshed and ready for your full day at camp, we decided to set off on a hike!


We head out to a nearby trailhead and run into one of the coolest cliff jumps that I’ve ever seen, Fawns Leap. They send me off first and I happily cannon ball into the crystal clear water!


We head back to camp and have ourselves a little siesta, reminiscing on the amazing swimming hole we discovered.


Then make a pretty epic dinner... if you continue reading, full disclosure, you might begin drooling.


Then settle in for some serious campfire time. Keep the ghost stories for when it gets super dark and then break out the flashlight spotlight!


We made s’mores… One of the greatest parts of camping is that the calories in s’mores don’t actually count!! We warned you about the drooling...


Then settled into bed for the second night of the best sleep of our lives!

Day 3:

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we agree. A plate full of bacon, eggs, toast and fruit later...


Our CampKeeper surprised us with an amazing nature walk, teaching us all about the land, the different species of plants and animals we came across as well as told us the history of the area, thanks Max!


Now I'm home and daydreaming about my next Tentrr adventure. We already have our Labor Day planned at a Tentrr campsite and I'm counting down the days until we hop into the car and have a whole new adventure!

How about you?
