Frosh Trip



Explore Day Hikes in Harriman State Park!

Based out of a campground in Harriman State Park, Basecamp & Hiking Trips will introduce you to the basics of camping, while retaining some of the comforts of frontcountry life.  The campground has bathrooms and showers for personal needs, and picnic tables and water pumps to make cooking and eating easier. 

Because of the campsites' central location, time spent transporting gear is kept to a minimum. Each day will be another adventure on a day hike to some of the most specatular places in the park, returning to the campground each night...
