The Heron Campground
182 sites · RVs, Tents300 acres · Sherman, NYThe Heron is a mindful community, raising conscious vibrations through art, music, farming, education and events while enriching lives and the land. You'll notice a handful of weekends that the campground is closed or would appear fully booked; those may be times that we have ticketed music festivals happening, in which case you can find that information on our main website.
For more information on our farm, The Farm Store, and our festivals, visit our main website.
