This is a little different from the other brick-and-mortar places – we’re talking about good ol’ traditional camping. Devil’s Tombstone is one of the oldest campgrounds in the Catskill Forest Preserve. It’s a small campground with wooded sites, a small shallow lake – Notch’s Lake – and spots for boating, fishing, and hiking. There are 24 tent and trailer sites, two picnic areas with tables and fireplaces or charcoal grills, a playground, a volleyball net, horseshoes, and firewood for sale. Swimming, boating, and showers are available at North-South Lake Campground – 8 miles away.
