Packing Guide

Your complete packing checklist

All of Wild Hudson Valley's activities are outdoors, and it is important for you to come prepared.

Clothes & Toiletries

Even in the warmer months, the temperature can drop in the evening. So, be sure to bring warmer clothes than you think you'll need! 

  • A range of comfortable outdoor clothing for hot and cool weather (layers are great!)

  • Hat and/or sunglasses

  • Long pants & close-toed shoes (think ticks and stinging nettle)

  • Toiletries (we do not provide bath products)

  • Sunscreen and bug spray 

  • Rain gear/umbrella 

  • Sturdy outdoor footwear and water shoes/sandals (the stream shores are rocky and some trails forge the creek - sport sandals are a great dual-purpose option)

  • Slippers or flip-flops for inside your tent (we ask that you take off outdoor shoes when entering your tent)

  • Swimwear and a beach towel if you plan to visit a lake or swimming area.


At your campsite, you'll find most of the amenities of a traditional hotel room, plus some extras to enhance your camping experience.  That said, below are the items we recommend you bring to get the most out of your weekend.

  • Food & drinks for your entire stay*

  • Towels & Bedding (sleeping bags, pillows, blankets etc)*

  • Cooler & Ice*

  • Portable camp/beach chairs*

  • Flashlights and/or headlamps

  • Binoculars

  • Hiking gear: Backpack, water bottle, multi-tool, lighter, hand sanitizer, first aid kit 

  • Notebook and pen/pencils (nature journaling!)

  • Additional cooking equipment (other than what we provide) that you might want for special meals. Examples include: aluminum foil, portable stove, thermos/tumbler, bottle opener/corkscrew, spices/condiments, dish towels/napkins.

  • Extra tableware for additional guests (we provide a four-person set that includes plates, mugs, bowls, and utensils)

  • Electronics... We suggest leaving them at home! To encourage our guests to unplug and be present during their stay, we do not offer Wi-Fi on site. We also highly discourage bluetooth speakers/portable radios, so that all of our guests can enjoy the sounds of nature and a peaceful, relaxed environment.

  • Fishing gear

*Also available as add-on when you make your reservation
