For hikers looking for a spot to simply roll out their sleeping bags at the end of the trail, Malouf’s Mountain Sunset Campground
is a noteworthy hike-in/hike-out facility with a twist. In fact, not much more than a sleeping bag is needed at this luxury campground. Yes, conventional primitive campsites are available, but what truly sets Malouf’s apart is its premium tarped camping platforms, each already filled to the brim with a full range of supplies. Plus, all sites come with an array of optional amenities, including delivery of camp gear directly from the Beacon train station, and a variety of food choices to self-prepare over camp stove or fire pit. Your camping experience can be as rough-and-tumble or as genteel as you, and your budget, determine. Hiking times range from 30 minutes to 7.5 hours, starting from one of three separate access points in Beacon, or from Breakneck Ridge.
