Strict cancellation policy so if not sure, just book for 1 person to guaranty a space and settle up upon arrival when you know your actual plans and numbers ?

So, we do weddings on some summer /fall weekends.   You camp in a totally different part of the property and are no where near the wedding activity at all.  Occassionally, the music is audible.  We do our best to let the wedding folks have their fun without irritating neighbors and campers, but feel free to check in with us before booking.

I’ve stayed here twice and am so glad to have this new go-to spot in my back pocket. Great location and super awesome, helpful host. The horses are beautiful!

I absolutely loved my stay at Rustic Ridge View Farm. Wally is great! I almost got stuck in my little van, but luckily I had gravity on my side and was able to reverse out of the spot. Wally offered to pull me out before I told him I would be okay for the night. The next morning he came by to make sure I wasn’t stuck. He told me about the Bonitou Crag trail which was close by. I decided to check it out that day and I’m so glad I did because the views are “billion dollar” as he said. Very close to Minnewaska also, which is why I chose to camp here. Check out Gertrude’s Nose Trail! The horses on the farm are beautiful, the porta-potties are clean, the sites are spread apart enough. I had most of the place to myself so it was very private. You can pick any spot that’s open. I felt very safe here. There were so many stars at night it was incredible! I will definitely camp here again when I’m in the area, and you should too. Thanks Wally!

I did not have the pleasure meeting Wally in person as I was mountain biking on the local trails when he stopped by. As a fellow EMT it would have been a blast to quickly share stories & experiences. The property is in admirable condition. I could not have asked for a better location to drive my vehicle to and set up camp. I guarantee that I will be back sooner than later! Cheers!

We really enjoyed our stay at Rustic Ridge. The location was more than ideal for hikes at Minnewaska. Wally was an excellent host, very accommodating and provided very clear instructions — at all hours of the day. The view was beautiful and the farm had a lot of quirky charm. Some sites were somewhat more remote than others, but Wally was on-hand to help find you an ideal spot for your party and gear. I'd definitely recommend Rustic Ridge for camping — tent or van.

My friends and I had a great time staying at Rustic Ridge recently. The weekend we stayed was fully booked out, but we didn't have any trouble with loud neighbors or late nights. Each site had plenty of space – we fit an SUV and 2 tents in ours, and that only took up half the site.
It seemed like most campers (ourselves included) were up for the music festival in Accord, while others were looking for a weekend trip to get out of the city. I'd definitely recommend Rustic Ridge to anyone looking to stay in this area.
Wally was very accommodating and gave us plenty of great local recommendations that we'll have to come back to check out :)

I camp quite often throughout the country, and Wally was hands down one of the best hosts we could have asked for. The farm was gorgeous, and a perfect place for home base for a few nights while exploring the area. There are many different choices of spots and I hope to explore each one! If you are trying to do an easier camp spot without having to trek too far into the woods, this is a perfect spot for just that. Soft ground to sleep on too and close to all types of great spots. I would recommend it to anyone.

Wally was friendly, helpful, and accomodating above and beyond what is reasonable to expect from a campground host. If you're looking for a place to spend a night in your van or a tent this is a great option close to area attractions.

Name of the campground is "Rustic Ridge" so don't expect luxury accomodations. Do expect a scenic location with views of horse pastures and wooded hills, wildflowers and more.

If you don't have 4wd take Wally's advice and stay in a site just off the gravel road. If it's rained recently you will probably get stuck and Wally will have to pull you out with the tractor. It won't be fun for you or for Wally.
