Review of Getaway Eastern Catskills.
To escape the sweltering heat, we went camping in Getaway Eastern Catskills for 2 days and 1 night. The cabin at the campsite here is a concept that looks like a campervan, and the cabin is equipped with a bed with a mattress, a bathroom, and a kitchen.
Small, clean and modern cabins are set on flat ground surrounded by tall, dry trees all around. The yard has lounge chairs and a space for a campfire.
We have forgotten the most important piece of camping equipment, firewood. But when it arrived, the wood was prepared in a small black plastic box that I saw. The price is 8 dollars. What makes this camping site unique is that you cannot meet staff. Of course, there are stores selling camping gear, but most of them are remote cabins. The entrance to the cabin is in the form of a digital door look, and you just need to enter the verification code that the company gives you through your mobile phone before you arrive. It felt like an unattended hostel because I didn't meet the staff directly.
We have a small child so we booked a 2 bed room. The two-bedroom has an loft structure with a small staircase as shown below. On one side of the cabin is a one side curtain wall, out of which the densely packed trees are directly visible.
And right in front of the bed is a small table.
The cabin is overall very clean. There are radios and books to read, and bowls, cups, cutting boards, frying pans, and pots for simple cooking are provided. Coffee and tea are also available, but you have to pay. It is recommended to bring it in advance. And you should always have mosquito repellent ready. There are a lot of mosquitoes.
There is a refrigerator without a freezer function, and there is an air conditioner. And there's a red phone you can call in case of an emergency.
The bathroom is equipped with a shower and hot water is available. But there is no washstand, so you have to use the sink in the kitchen. Towels and shampoo are well stocked.
Below is the equipment to make simple marshmallows by lighting a fire.
The downside is that the two-story attic is suitable for small children, but I wouldn't recommend it for adults. The ceiling is very low and stuffy like an MR.I machine, and my daughter often bump her head. The mattress upstairs is thin so your back will hurt a lot when you sleep.
Overall, it is a good place to stay for a while when you want to relax and enjoy camping in a cozy and clean environment in a quiet wilderness. Very quiet and clean.
In my case, it was interesting because it was my first time staying in a camping car. If you have never used a camper before or want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, it would be good to stop by for a while.
