Ugly Apple Farms

11 sites · Tents70 acres · Port Jervis, NY
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

Beach camping in New York guide

Overview

New York’s beaches are made for summer and spread throughout the state, from New York City to the Canadian border. If you’re looking for a traditional beach vacation, opt for a waterside campsite on Long Island. Suffolk and Nassau Counties house RV campgrounds, cabin rentals, and state parks mere steps from the sea. If you’d rather opt for a lakeside retreat, try a unique vacation rental along the shorelines of Lake Ontario or Lake Erie, lakes so massive that you’d never realize you’re not actually on the ocean. Spend your summer water skiing and tubing—or simply laying out beneath the sun with a beach read. In the cooler months, swimming is out of the question, but an off-season New York beach campsite is as tranquil as it gets, with fewer crowds and uninterrupted nature views.
