Ugly Apple Farms was started by my Wife and to try to bring fresh organic/permaculture food to our community. We love to play music and get together with our friends and have been hosting people for some time. We thought that hipcamp could introduce people to our mission and make some extra money to get the farm off the ground. Ugly Apple Farms is a diverse place. We have opportunities for farm classes, pick your own veggies and more. We also have 1800 feet of access to the Neversink River. We recommend four wheel drive for some of our sites so please ask about them. We are an off grid farm with access to some solar for charging. We have tent sites and room for campers. Our camping is primitive but there is access to potable water and sanitation if needed. All extras are first come first serve if not reserved in advance. We love and welcome any questions! Thanks for looking!! Randall and Melissa

The space is gorgeous -- so secluded and surrounded by luscious forest, but also totally accessible and easy to walk back to the car and outhouse/to drive up to the host home and water source. The river spot was so magical, and Randall and Melissa were very response and welcoming. Goats, chickens, turkeys, puppies, and fall foliage! We'll definitely return :) Thank you!

Nice campsite
Nice open spot, quiet and secluded. Great place to sit by a fire and disconnect. Pulled the car right up to the campsite

We stayed at site #1 that was a nice secluded spot near. We brought our paddle boards and spent the morning exploring the river. It was awesome. We saw a bald eagle!

Private camping experience
Great camping experience. Feels like you are totally in the woods but you are not that far from civilization. We went in late September so it got very cold at night. We were at Riverside 1 and the land there was mostly flat and softish. No sleeping on rocks here. Plenty of space for multiple tents. Lots of tinder and kindling to be had all around. Randall took care of our needs and gave us good directions to find the location. Definitely get the breakfast if you come by. Eggs and bacon were outstanding. Highly recommend this place. I'll certainly be back again with more folks this time.

Randall was a great host and easy going for the check in even when we were a little late arriving in the evening. The campsites are well set up and easy to navigate, and even with many campsites near to each other it was quiet.

Large group camping!
Super friendly and extremely helpful and hospitable! The camp site we had was so so nice. Lots of space and had a nice fire pit and even included a charcoal grill and table for us. Will definitely be back!

Rustic camping experience
Our family enjoyed our first camping experience at Ugly Apple farm. Randall was so helpful and generous in making sure we had the right directions and everything we needed. My kids loved hiking along the river and the scenic view.

Relaxation near the water
Wow! Another great stay at Ugly Apple Farms. Yep, I came back for a second time because it is that great! Near the water so you can “lazy river” on a float or just sit back at your campsite and enjoy watching the river flow by. There is a “beach” (a pebbled spot you can sit and relax) to enjoy when the hot afternoon hits. The campsite is all shaded and the outhouse is clean. What more could you ask for?!?

River camp with farm animals
Randall and his family are so cool! Their property is easy to find, close to hiking trails, and is the perfect place to spend a few days by the river. Our favorite parts were a lazy float down the river and taking a cheese class, where we learned lots about raising animals and even got to milk a goat or two.

Awesome
We had an amazing time at site #2. It was very secluded and we didn’t see or hear any other campers the entire day and night. If you’re looking for a nice quiet camping trip, I highly recommend staying here.

We started at riverside site #8 and loved our stay!!! Randall and his family were so nice and we especially loved how private the site is! Bathrooms are a nearby wooden outhouse, the whole spot is very shaded, and the spot to go swimming in the river is a short walk away. Would definitely camp here again!

Site 1 - Ugly Apple Farms Birchwood sites
Our family of six (plus my nephew) had a quiet getaway on Randall & Melissa’s sprawling property. We started in one of the Birchwood sites, and by day two we were walking all over the place totally barefoot and care free. The tubing was a lot of fun. The best part of the trip was Randall and his family’s hospitality, which felt transported us to another place and time. Definitely opt in for the meals, and make sure to chat with Randall. The guy has lived multiple lives within a single life, and has a lot to reach those around him. We will definitely come back to get away from the everyday routine to Randall’s timeless place. It’s rare to visit a place and come back a slightly better version of yourself. Thanks Randall, Melissa and family for making it a special weekend.

My friend and I had such a incredible time camping on the river. We fed the goats, tended to the bees, floated down the river, enjoyed a beautiful sunset at dinner, and listened to a chorus of nature throughout the night.

A beautiful little spot right by the water! It's a dirt road to the campsite, so you may want to only consider if you have 4 wheel drive, but it was nice to be able to pull up and have the car right there. There is an outhouse, but it could use a little love. Would 100% stay here again! The water access is so worth it.

Great river side tubing campsite!
Loved this place and would definitely come back! The host was really nice and made an incredible meal for us ! The one thing is that the sites are further a part than expected but it ended up working out well for our big group

Brookside Site #2
My friends and I stayed at Brookside site #2 and couldn’t have been happier. Our site was extremely private, clean, spacious, and had a pretty brook to venture. The bathroom was a seated bucket filled with wood chips, which we didn’t mind! 2 of us did the beekeeping class with Randall and it was such a cool experience!! Randall was so kind, considerate and knowledgeable- we had a blast. I highly recommend spending time floating down the river, it was the highlight of our trip. Randall and his family are wonderful hosts that have created such an easygoing and relaxed environment to have fun. 10/10 recommend and we can’t wait to go back!

A great place to relax
It was an amazing stay. The view of the river from the campsite is amazing. The stress just drops off you as you are surrounded by woods and watch the water go by. The “beach” area is a great place to grab some sun in the afternoon and the upper Delaware is nearby with tons of things to do! Will definitely be coming back to stay at Randall’s place!

Camping next to the Neversink River
Randall’s spot is an oasis of relaxation. We stayed in spot #9 next to the Neversink river. Plenty of room at the site, a nice fire ring, and a convenient folding table. No other sites nearby and the outhouse was close. A quick walk down to a rock beach and the river, which we visited and swam in everyday we were there. Randall was particularly helpful in setting up our floating/rafting adventure on the Delaware. We dropped our car down the river and he drove us up to a drop in point where we put our SUP and one of his tubes in the river. He was kind enough to help us inflate our SUP. That was above and beyond. We would come back here in a heartbeat. The setting is gorgeous and Randall is generous.

Great river camping!
Great private campsites that are secluded from other campers. Access to an awesome river and beach area. Randall has fire wood available. I would recommend you bring chairs. All in all it’s very chill!

Water access!
Site 8 was absolutely perfect for peace and quiet and it was just a short walk to access the water which was awesome. Randall answered any questions we had and greeted us upon arrival. We are definitely planning to return!
