Bonflower is open for Fall camping! Check out our extras as right now we have lots of farm-fresh foods for you to enjoy.

Please read info about our sites carefully before booking, and feel free to ask any questions.  We've been having people camp on the land for about a year now and want to make sure everyone who comes knows what to expect and has a great time!

The campsites are spread around the farm to give everyone privacy. Each site has a picnic table and firepit, but they each offer something a little different. Make sure to book the one that is right for you & your people: 

Site 1:  Great for people who want to be a little closer to the action. It's near the compost toilet and large communal bonfire pit. And it's the closest site to parking — you can even drive up and park next to the site if you're wanting max convenience. Fits up to 2 tents.

Site 2: If you're coming with a crew, this is maybe the best site. Can fit up to 3 tents, and isn't too far from parking. On your short walk you'll travel through a little meadow of Goldenrods to a campsite that's private but not too far away.

Site 3: A quiet and woodsy experience that's very lovely. On the smaller side, so best for 1 or 2 people with a single tent.  Hide away in this site, it's a little mystical. It's a hike-in site on flat terrain, about a 5-minute easy walk.

Site 4: You'll forget all your worries out here, in the middle of the woods. It's quiet, typically visited by deer and wild turkeys, and campers of the more rustic variety. It's about a 10min trek in from the parking on an easy, flat path. If you have loads of gear, you can borrow our wagon to help out. Fits 2-3 tents max.

We're a small farm in the Hudson Valley with quiet, peaceful camping on primitive land.  Just the right amount of familiar amenities and a beautiful landscape make a nice backdrop for your next camping trip.

We love to meet new campers and have friends come back time and again.  Join us and other campers in the communal kitchen, or hang out by the campfire in your campsite with your group.

You'll find beautiful hiking trails, mountains, lakes, rock climbing, biking and many more outdoor activities right nearby in the Shawangunk mountains.  When there's snow on the ground we have snowshoe and x-country ski trails around our farm and through the woods.  You might even get lucky and come when we've groomed them!

We're a mile down the road from Angry Orchard cider house, and close to Magnanini Winery and Robibero Winery.  New Paltz is close by and has some great food to offer if you want to ride into a bigger town.

Order any extras with us (camp breakfast or dinner) ahead of time so we can make sure you have everything when you arrive.

Looking forward to having you visit :)

Ellie and Joey are wonderful hosts—they were super communicative, kind, and accommodating. Three of us—me, my partner, and a friend—did an overnight bikecamping trip to Bonflower Farm, staying at site 3, which had enough room for our 2 small backpacking tents. We opted in for breakfast, which comprised of very tasty shakshouka, a potato mash, bread with jam, and plenty of coffee. If you're reading this and you're also a bikecamper, we took our bikes on Metro North to Poughkeepsie, and from there it was a very pleasant ~23 mile ride along mostly rail trails (Hudson Valley RT > Wallkill RT) and quiet country roads. You'll need gravel tires for the rail trails, though, which have some rocky (and muddy, if it's rained recently) sections. Speaking of mud—it did rain a little the weekend we stayed at Bonflower; site 3 has some mild tree coverage, as others note, but if you're looking to hang out in the communal picnic bench area when it's raining you might consider bringing a tarp and some rope.

Great space to enjoy a car camping trip. The campsites are spacious and well spaced from each other. Had a great time enjoying the communal bonfire! Ellie and Joey had great recommendations and were always easy to reach. Would definitely recommend this campsite to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area!

My partner and I stayed one night while doing wedding research in the Hudson Valley. Ellie & Joey were super responsive to communications. We stayed at site 3 and arrived after dark. The walk from the car was easy to navigate, even in the dark, and well groomed. The site was covered by trees, which helped protect us from the light rain and also blocked the sun in the morning. We didn't do any of the food add ons, but did check out the communal bonfire and met a nice group of fellow travelers there. On the way out, we realized that the site is also right next to Angry Orchard brewery! We will definitely be back to Bonflower at some point!

This was our second year staying at Bonflower Farm, and most definitely not our last. Ellie & Joey are great hosts, super responsive, and cook THE BEST MEALS. I cannot emphasize enough that people should be adding dinner/breakfast to their booking. Two years in a row now they've blown our socks off with their fresh delicious meals. They grow most of the food served (chicken included) and source the rest from local farms, yum. The outhouse is super clean, and they provide kitchen essentials should you need them. Plus they let us fulfill all of our bonfire dreams. See you guys next year!

Bonflower was awesome! Plenty of space for two tents and three kids to run around. The sites are spread out and offer plenty of privacy. Definitely regret not ordering a meal while we were there but opted to check out a nearby brewery. Very conveniently located to climbing at the gunks and hiking areas. Thank you!

My boyfriend and I had a great time staying here this past weekend! We were in site 3, which was about a five minute walk from our car. The site was very cozy, and it was so nice having a designated fire pit and picnic table.
Overnight our site seemed to be home to several owls as well! We heard about 3-4 barred owls calling to each other as well as a great horned owl elsewhere on the farm— it was so cool!

Great farm-to-table meals!

Ellie and Joey were very welcoming hosts. We had stayed at site 4, and it felt like we were walking to a secluded secret camping spot. The communal bonfire pit at night has the best front row seat to view the stars. It was breathtaking! What was even more amazing was the food that Ellie and Joey made for us at dinner and breakfast. All farm-to-table with their own grown ingredients. I would highly recommend adding a meal to your stay.
