3 Hudson Valley Scout Campgrounds released


HUDSON VALLEY, NY – Three Hudson Valley campgrounds are marketed by the Greater Hudson Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Cushman & Wakefield announced Tuesday that it has been selected exclusively to organize the sale of three unique campgrounds, located in Stony Point, Putnam Valley and Salt Point.

The sites total 1,970 acres.

A Cushman & Wakefield team consisting of Al Mirin, Bill Eisenhut, Matthew Torrance and Kate Schwartz will market the sites on behalf of the vendor, the Greater Hudson Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Al Mirin of Cushman & Wakefield said the three campgrounds represent a unique opportunity to acquire a large area within an hour’s drive of New York City.

“Each site is truly one of a kind, offering its own unique characteristics in extremely scenic areas,” he said.

Camp Bullowa is a 313 acre site located at 17 Franck Road in Stony Point, Rockland County. The camp has a variety of buildings and scenic waterfront areas on its own Lake Boyce. The site has road and electric access to most of the property and offers a dining hall that seats 125, seven cabins, numerous tent sites and a training center that was to become the Council Service Center. The site is zoned special recreational residential, allowing for public parks, playgrounds and outdoor recreation facilities, as well as isolated single-family residences with or without municipal sewer and water.

Durland Scout Reservation is a 1,385 acre site located at 65-300 Clear Lake Road in the Putnam Valley. The site includes two lakes, 18 miles of color-coded hiking trails, nine group cabins, dozens of tent and lean-to sites, and an events program pavilion. The main areas of the camp are equipped with public services and the majority of the camp is accessible by road. The property has district preservation zoning, allowing municipal buildings, public schools, and parks and recreation services. The uses of the special permits would include a variety of educational and recreational uses, such as camps, golf courses and horse riding stables and academies.

Camp Nooteeming is a 272 acre site located at 22-169 Camp Nooteeming Road in Salt Point, Dutchess County. The site has road and utility access to most of the property and includes many structures including a four-season visitor center, a dining hall with a capacity of 175 people, and several cabins. The property offers access to a lake and extensive riparian areas for various activities. The site also has a regulation size synthetic turf soccer field, swimming pool and softball field. The Pathfinder Academy currently rents out portions of the property related to the football pitch for specific periods throughout the year. The site is zoned agricultural rural, so any development will have to be compatible with the natural boundaries of the land.
