The Farnch: A developing Destination Farm Come have a picnic under a tree, spend a few hours and go for a hike in Hudson Highland Gateway Park, a Historic 352-acre park offering hiking, birding, cross-country skiing, fishing & snowshoeing. He have rods and tackle to rent or buy if you don’t have your own. If you’re having a really great time and the kids just don’t want to leave, join us for an evening of sleeping under the stars in the forest at one of our campsites. We also host local Scout Groups, and Appellation Trail hikers. Hikers know that we are located about 2 miles south of the route 9 trail crossing at the Appalachian Market and offer pick up and drop off service from there on weekends. Hudson Valley is a wonderful 4 season go to location and being about an hour away from New York City you won’t spend hours in the car before being able to stretch your legs.

Mike’s place was very hip because, there was plenty of space for dogs to roam. They, especially, enjoyed cooling off in the nearby stream. We did, too, as it was a very hot weekend. The campsite was great. It had the perfect mix of shade and open space. There were 2 picnic tables as well as a prep table. The fire pit had a handy cooking grill. The platform, partially covered with tarp, that we put our tent on was quite useful when there was a major rain storm early one morning. The outhouse was perfect and the washing station for dishes and showers was a bonus. Mike did a nice job putting all that together! Mike was also very easy to communicate with.

Chestnuts Landing
Blend of Nature & Accessibility
Chestnut Landing Campground is just perfect for families with curious kids who love climbing, exploring, and splashing around in the swim holes. This was my second time visit to the property, and one thing that stood out to me for this particular campground was how close the campground is to the road, giving a reassuring feeling to newcomers. The road noise actually helps to make the place feel cozy rather than too isolated. However, I must admit, the car sounds can be a bit distracting at night, but fear not - the sites further inside the property are nice and quiet! This campground is spacious, well-kept, and has a lovely private feel to it, making our stay super comfy. The rocks around the swim holes are a treasure trove for little adventurers to explore and have a blast. Plus, Mike, the owner, is a gem! His thoughtful touches like the dish rest by the fire grill add a touch of charm to the whole experience. In a nutshell, Chestnut Landing Campground is the ultimate blend of nature and convenience, making it a top pick for families craving a fun camping trip. Don't let the road noise deter you - the beauty and welcoming vibe of the campground more than make up for it. Our time there was simply wonderful, and I can't recommend it enough to families looking for an unforgettable outdoor escape!

Nice and secluded site, multiple fire pits and areas to camp/hang out. Tables and chairs, firewood provided, would definitely return.

Beautiful Forest and Creek
Went hammock camping - 2 adults, 1 dog and had a great time. Incredible land with a nice creek, beautiful forest, and great plants (moss, ferns, trees). Awesome host, awesome land. You can hear a little freeway traffic at night but if you’re visiting from the city you’ll barely notice it. Mike was very kind, told us about the area, and sold us firewood. Would recommend!

NYC to the Woods!
The land and space was beautiful and relaxing! Just what we came for. Chestnuts Landing could have been a bit more level for comfortability, but definitely offered us a great experience! We had all we needed! Mike was an amazing host who was available and extremely helpful with all of our needs! He even helped one of our cars which got stuck in mud, out! If you prefer bare camping, this site was perfect! Cant wait to try a different site next time! Thanks Mike!
