West Camp, New York

West Camp was one of two work camps setup by the English, along the Hudson River, to temporarily house refugees (German Palatines) displaced by Louis XIV's invasion from France into the Holy Roman Empire. These German citizens who had initially escaped to England were then shipped to the Colonies, sympathy of Queen Anne of England, whom they came to serve in the reduction of the pine forest for naval stores for her Majesty's Fleet.

The site of West Camp is part of the modern town of Saugerties in Ulster County, New York.

The second camp was East Camp, which was across the Hudson River in what is now Columbia County.
