Swan Lake Camplands

Home Page

       Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of Swan Lake Camplands. We are located in Ferndale, New York and have 168 camp sites, mostly wooded.  The original Swan Lake Camplands fell under disrepair over the years and in 2010 was acquired by Dr. Joseph DeLuca, Col.(Ret.), USAF, of Vernon, NJ.  The goal was to rebuild the campground in a natural rustic setting and offer a unique camping experience.  Camping, music, freedom from the hustle and bustle, all in the heart of the beautiful Catskill Mountains.  A place to make memories, return to the past and enjoy family and friends while sheltered from the outside world --"The Woodstock Experience!"

        The original Woodstock Festival's organizers planned the concert at the Winston Farm in Saugerties; however, the town turned down their permit. The "Woodstock" Festival was actually held almost 60 miles away at Max Yasgur's Farm in the Sullivan County town of Bethel, (10 miles from the campground).  There you can visit Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, located at the site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival.  Enjoy their museum housed in a beautiful LED-certified green building set back from the top of the Woodstock festival hillside, and learn the story behind the "Sixties".  Spend your day visiting one of our local wineries, distilling companies,creameries or farms.  For the more energetic boating, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, paintball, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, auto racing and golf are all located at your fingertips.  At night enjoy a show at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, listen to music at the Downtown Barn or Dancing Cat Saloon or enjoy a quiet dinner at one of the beautiful lake side restaurants on Lake Kauneonga or White Lake.  When the day is done, come back to the campground, relax and enjoy a bonfire!
        RV campers and tents are always welcomed at Swan Lake Camplands. All of the amenities listed will be available for the season. If you are interested in a seasonal, RV, tent, or Carefree Camping Site (campground equipment-we do the set-up/clean-up) or just an overnight get away, please e-mail or call us.
       Our Country Store is open on the premises to meet most of your camping needs. Stocked with ice, water, soda, snacks, ice cream, camping equipment, and some souvenirs to take back home! We'll even put on the coffee to help wake you up in the morning!
        The mountains are full of activities for people of all ages.  Come create your own "Woodstock Experience!"
