Birch Star Farm in historic Charlton, NY

3 sites · RVs, Tents47 acres · Charlton, NY
Our historic and peaceful property is yours to explore! You can swim in the pond, take casual strolls around the property, enjoy the campfire at night, bike for miles on scenic country roads, and use this site as a jumping off point to discover all the beer, wine, cheese, concerts, festivals, hiking, kayaking, restaurants, shopping and more that the greater Capital Region has to offer! According to a few sources we've consulted, the Mohican people (Eastern Algonquian family of tribes - not to be confused with the Mohawk, a distinctly different tribe) were the indigenous occupants of the land where our farm is now located. Historians note that the name Mohican is from the indigenous word meaning "water that flows in two directions." Most Mohicans were driven into western NY and Canada when the Revolutionary War broke out. Local history indicates that the first white occupants to build here were the Hawley Family, in 1790. Parts of the farmhouse date to this era. Outbuildings were added through the decades and centuries, and the land was used as a dairy farm, among other ventures, by previous owners. We purchased the property in 2021 in hopes of providing more space, nature and outdoor living for our two little ones. We have two fields dedicated to Christmas trees, as well as apple, pear and cherry trees, and we've had successful garlic harvests to share with neighbors, family, friends, and at local farmers' markets. We've also begun brewing our own beer and cider. If you have any planting or farming advice to share, please don't hesitate! Follow us on Instagram @birchstarfarm

Camping in Saratoga guide

Overview

Just over an hour south of Lake George, Saratoga is steeped in history and natural beauty. The majestic Adirondacks loom on the horizon. Mineral water fountains dot the historic downtown of Saratoga Springs. The busy season is summer when crowds pack the Saratoga racetrack to watch the horses.

Campers who want to stay close to town can choose from private campgrounds and RV resorts. Several favorite family campgrounds are near the Daketown Town State Forest. If you don't mind bringing your own supplies, you can pitch a tent in many of the surrounding New York state parks. Most of them permit primitive camping.

The closest state campground is Moreau Lake State Park, about 13 miles from Sarasota Springs. The picturesque grounds have cabins and tent camping close to the lake. Campers get basic amenities like restrooms and picnic tables, plus a swimming beach, boat launch, and hiking trails. The park's nature center has kid-friendly programs, too.

On Great Sacandaga Lake, the Northampton Beach campground is nestled on the shore amid towering white pines. The tent sites are nicely shaded, and a sandy beach and boat launch for large crafts provide lake access. For those willing to venture north, Hearthstone Point campground has sites right on Lake George. The facilities are older, but the trailer and tent sites are large and secluded, offering a relaxing atmosphere.

Mineral springs made Saratoga Springs famous in the 1800s. Today, spas still offer the bubbly baths. The Saratoga Spa State Park is the best place to sample some, with a dozen drinking fountains along the Geyser Trail. In the winter, the park is one of the best spots for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Bring your own gear or rent at the Park Office.
