The Catskill Mountains are famed for their abundance of lush green fauna that dominate mountain views. In the winter, they are also home to popular ski resorts, but all year round, the range serves as a hot spot for hikers, campers and backpackers alike. Make sure to bring your pet along with you to experience nature by staying in a pet-friendly camping option; one that is as unique as your surroundings to make your holiday one you won’t ever forget. When it’s snowy, head to Hunter Mountain for some of the best ski slopes in the area, or try tubing when it’s warm in the Esopus Creek. Don’t miss a view over Sunset Rock on one of your many hikes, and to really connect with nature, visit Zen Mountain Monastery for some meditation.
