Historic Interest

Beaverkill Campground is located on the Beaverkill trout fishing stream, which flows through the entire developed length of the site. An historic covered bridge, constructed in 1865, spans the stream on the town road. There is a deep pool in the stream adjacent to and underneath this covered bridge, creating a unique and picturesque setting. The development area lies along the stream, with camping sites on the north side and picnicking area on the south side. Beaverkill stream is the attraction for most campers. Most seem to enjoy and prefer the atmosphere created by the location of the campsites along the stream within sight and sound of the water.
