Lodging and Camping at Zoar Outdoor

Charlemont, Massachusetts

We offer several on-site lodging options at Zoar Outdoor: Hawk Mountain Lodge is a renovated farmhouse with 5 rooms that can sleep as many as 14 people;  our wilderness camping includes five tent sites and eleven cabin tents and a total capacity of seventy-six campers.

Camping at Zoar Outdoor is set in a wooded, wilderness environment off the beaten track on a plateau 60 feet above western Massachusetts' Deerfield River Valley floor. Surrounded by 80 acres of wilderness hiking trails, it is not uncommon to see deer, hawks and owls or even an occasional bear in the area.

Our bathhouse offers modern conveniences such as coin-operated hot showers and flush toilets. Your car is never more than a few hundred feet away.

About campfires - because of the lack of vehicle access to our campsite, we can not allow camp fires at individual sites.  Cooking fires that are contained within a hibachi or other grill are permitted.  We have a group fire area behind Hawk Mountain Lodge that is available upon arrangement with our lodging manager.  We will provide the wood for these fires.

We can not allow you to bring your own wood due to the risk of importing invasive insects or diseases.  Tree-killing insects and diseases can lurk in firewood. These insects and diseases can't move far on their own, but when people move firewood they can jump hundreds of miles. New infestations destroy our forests, property values, and cost huge sums of money to control.  For more information, check out http://www.dontmovefirewood.org/

Our Alcohol Policy - While we allow the responsible use of alcohol in our campground, we do not tolerate heavy drinking or the behaviors that go with it.  If you are not able to adhere to this policy you will be asked to leave and you will forfeit any payments you have made for that night or for future nights’ stay.

Halfway between camping and staying indoors, our cabin tents offer a wilderness experience with a touch of class. Our eleven cabin tents sleep four people each and are available April 1 to October 31st.

Each 12' by 14' tent is set on a wooden deck built into the side of the hill and equipped with four cots, a gas lantern, a gas grill, and a comfortable porch. You should bring a sleeping bag or blankets, a towel, a pillow and a flashlight. Linens are not included.

Price

$21 per person per night ($42 minimum per tent.)

Yurt Glamping

Set in the middle of our campground on the hillside above the Deerfield, our Yurt offers a unique experience in a wooded setting.  The furnishings are simple with a double bed and a battery powered lantern, but the sight of the stars overhead through the clear skylight makes a stay in the yurt memorable.  

Price

$59 per night.  Maximum 2 people.
