This is one of only two camp sites on a 200-acre parcel of secluded, rural farm land. We are a working pasture based farm where you can see how grass fed beef, pork, chicken, and eggs are produced. There's nothing quite like fresh eggs and bacon after waking up to the sunrise over a fog-filled valley! When you arrive we will provide a complimentary carton of pastured raised eggs and you are welcome to visit our web site (redhouseranch . net) or store to order meats for your stay and/or to take with you upon your departure. We have a wide variety of grass fed beef, pasture raised pork, snack sticks for long hikes, and dog bones for your furry friends. Many of our items are well suited for campfire cooking. Keep in mind that all our products are frozen so be sure to plan for time to thaw. If you're not sure what that involves - we're here to help. We are a working farm but, much of our property is not grazed or farmed. You are welcome to explore the entire area while also getting a glimpse of sustainable, pasture-based, farming methods. Learn more about us and the history of the farm at our website. As you roam the hills and forests you'll eventually bump into some of our animals. Please do not enter the animal enclosures or touch any of the electrified fence lines. If you really want to pet a piggie or hold a chicken - just reach out to Ike or Dave and we will gladly arrange this for you. Red House Ranch is also the perfect spot for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers. During your stay you may encounter eagles, blue herons, coyotes, turtles, wild turkeys, foxes, the endangered bobolink bird (its unique call sounds a bit like R2D2), deer, great horned owls, and many unique plants. It's not uncommon to hear the coyotes howling at night. In addition to hiking trails with incredible views, there are four ponds on the property easily accessible with mown paths. One is very large with a dock and suitable for swimming, paddling, fishing, or just relaxing but the water. The other three are smaller and are now primarily wildlife habitat. easily accessible with mown paths If you're feeling adventurous, there is a more strenuous hike down into the creek bed where you can find miniature versions of the gorges and waterfalls that our region is known for. We are happy to provide maps and guidance or leave you to your own devices. When skies are clear our area has very little light pollution and excellent star visibility. It's a great place to view the night sky during a meteor shower. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoy living in the beautiful Southern Tier/Finger Lakes area!

Wonderful Place to Stay!
Our stay at Ike and Dave's farm was such a wonderful experience for my family. It was our children's first time camping, and I would say they had an amazing time! Despite the unfortunate weather, the views from the property were stunning and surroundings of farm life added to the peaceful and serene feeling of country living. The hospitality shown from Ike and Dave was always pleasurable, and I would highly recommend the Red House Ranch to those looking for a peaceful getaway with gorgeous views!

Camping with Animals!
I loved camping at the farm. The view was incredible and very serene. The site was well kept and close to outhouse and water source. We explored the land and saw lots of salamanders, deer and birds. Also the eggs that Ike and Dave provided were SO tasty! Would definitely come again!

Scenic campsite!
The view lives up to the hype! Absolute pleasure camping on Ike and Dave's land, between the warm welcome I received to the complementary dozen eggs, I felt at ease immediately and was shown the way to an incredibly scenic campsite. The pictures don't do it justice. Be sure to check out their meat store (online or in person) - steak and eggs makes for an awesome camp breakfast

Veryfriendly hosts!
We never got to enjoy this campsite because of excessive rain and us changing our route accordingly. The hosts were very informative and understanding about the situation. We do hope to get back there in the future.

Great, quiet meadow-site at an easy to access location. Instructions were clear, host communicative. We stayed over on a super rainy night, and the gravel road and parking were clutch. Awesome experience with great hosts!
