Sites are private with fire pits.  It is $25/ person per night!

Strict cancellation policy so if not sure, just book for 1 person to guaranty a space and settle up upon arrival when you know your actual plans and numbers ?

So, we do weddings on some summer /fall weekends.   You camp in a totally different part of the property and are no where near the wedding activity at all.  Occassionally, the music is audible.  We do our best to let the wedding folks have their fun without irritating neighbors and campers, but feel free to check in with us before booking.

We really enjoyed our stay at Rustic Ridge. The location was more than ideal for hikes at Minnewaska. Wally was an excellent host, very accommodating and provided very clear instructions — at all hours of the day. The view was beautiful and the farm had a lot of quirky charm. Some sites were somewhat more remote than others, but Wally was on-hand to help find you an ideal spot for your party and gear. I'd definitely recommend Rustic Ridge for camping — tent or van.

My friends and I had a great time staying at Rustic Ridge recently. The weekend we stayed was fully booked out, but we didn't have any trouble with loud neighbors or late nights. Each site had plenty of space – we fit an SUV and 2 tents in ours, and that only took up half the site.
It seemed like most campers (ourselves included) were up for the music festival in Accord, while others were looking for a weekend trip to get out of the city. I'd definitely recommend Rustic Ridge to anyone looking to stay in this area.
Wally was very accommodating and gave us plenty of great local recommendations that we'll have to come back to check out :)

I camp quite often throughout the country, and Wally was hands down one of the best hosts we could have asked for. The farm was gorgeous, and a perfect place for home base for a few nights while exploring the area. There are many different choices of spots and I hope to explore each one! If you are trying to do an easier camp spot without having to trek too far into the woods, this is a perfect spot for just that. Soft ground to sleep on too and close to all types of great spots. I would recommend it to anyone.

Wally was friendly, helpful, and accomodating above and beyond what is reasonable to expect from a campground host. If you're looking for a place to spend a night in your van or a tent this is a great option close to area attractions.

Name of the campground is "Rustic Ridge" so don't expect luxury accomodations. Do expect a scenic location with views of horse pastures and wooded hills, wildflowers and more.

If you don't have 4wd take Wally's advice and stay in a site just off the gravel road. If it's rained recently you will probably get stuck and Wally will have to pull you out with the tractor. It won't be fun for you or for Wally.

Our stay at Wally’s was great! The sites have plenty of space and we felt like we had privacy. It’s close to plenty of hiking, and the brewery just a few minutes away was great. I would definitely return to the site in the future.

Wally was very welcoming and accommodating - even gave me great hiking recommendations, let me borrow a bike, lent me an empire pass! The farm has million dollar views, me and my dog had a blast.

The spot was beautiful and peaceful. The sky was littered with stars. Mars Landing was a good sized area. We'd definitely come back. Close to good restaurants (watermill had the best perogies)
