This amazing 50 acre farm is on the State and National Historic Register. Once part of the Milton Bodine land tract, this property has been privately owned for 4 generations. Come explore all Riverside Farm has to offer. **BEST IN NEW YORK 2022 and 2023** Voted Hipcamp #1 place to visit for 2022 *Riverside Farm was granted one of the States first Conditional Adult Use Cannabis Cultivation Licenses and has since formed FlowerHouse NY. The cultivation of New York's first licensed cannabis crops and products are happening offsite, at another location. However Riverside Farm is still an active and working Farm* Follow along @FlowerHouse_ny and @Waldenriversidefarminc This picturesque family farm is conveniently located just 80 miles from both Manhattan and Albany. Riverside Farm offers 1600 feet of direct river access, ponds, rolling meadows and woodlands. You’ll have 50 acres of freedom to enjoy at your leisure. There are convenient walking paths cut throughout the property to help guide you. The farm is yours to explore, check out the beautiful, historical barns, old school hand water pumps, the old-world windmill and other hidden treasures. All the campsites have plenty of space between each other (roughly 300 ft), and they all have their own access points to the river. We are approximately 1.5 miles from Angry Orchard Cider House. The new City Winery in Montgomery is minutes away. We are located right in the middle of the Shawangunk Wine Trail and have dozens of wineries and craft breweries within 20 miles of the farm. World class hiking trails and breathtaking views await at Minnewaska State Park and Mohonk Mountain House, both just 15 miles away. The Bashakill Preserve is home to some of the best bird watching in the Northeast and is 5 miles away. The walkway over the Hudson and fine dining options at Newburgh's waterfront are also within a short 20 minute drive. The Shawangunk, Wallkill and Hudson Valley rail trails are easily accessible for those wanting to bike or jog. Whether you're looking for a home base to explore the wonderful Hudson Valley and its attractions or looking to get completely lost in nature's peacefulness and beauty, Riverside Farm is the spot.

Beautifully maintained campground
This was one of the best and most well-maintained campgrounds I've ever stayed at. The site itself is beautiful, sitting amidst the meadow full of wildflowers and vibrant wildlife, and beside the river which was wonderful to play in and a relief from the heat. There were many great amenities as well: a tent platform, adirondack chairs, picnic table with cook station, firepit, and camp toilet. The hosts were extremely welcoming, hospitable, and responsive. They are running a beautiful campsite on their farm and we will definitely be back!

Historic Riverside Farm Site 1 & 2
This was a beautiful spot right by the river. Sites are well spread out so everyone has privacy. Sam was very quick to respond to my questions and the site was extremely well kept. Firewood was dry and not pine so burnt very well. The kindling and paper was also a very nice touch. Property is also beautiful with nice paths through the field. I am already thinking of going back.

Historic Riverside Farm Site 1 & 2
Sam’s place is incredibly sweet, next to a river you can listen to while falling asleep, close to a big supermarket for supplies, and well maintained (pathways mowed, but lots of wild areas full of life!) Our dog had a wonderful time running around. We were the only campers there so we had the place to ourselves but the sites are far enough apart that even if there were others it would still feel private. At night we watched the millions of fireflies and at one point we were visited by a deer who hissed at our barking dog - all very fun. Sam’s a great host!

Great, secluded site for groups
Sam’s site #5 was awesome, secluded from other sites and with private access to the river. Sam was very responsive and extremely kind and accommodating. The site had access to fresh, cold well water. And we were able to purchase firewood and fresh eggs from Sam. Would highly recommend!

While my pups and I were only here a brief time on our way to VA, this place was amazing and I’ll definitely be back. Quiet, private, and the river was much needed during insanely hot heat wave!
