From your bed you will hear the roosters crow and feel the sun warming the day...

From your bed you will hear the roosters crow and feel the sun warming the day...

A fire ring, picnic table and some wood for your first fire will be waiting for you. From the front of the site you can see one side of our market garden. Depending on the season you will see tulips, beets and onions sprouting, tomatoes climbing up their trellis, melons soaking up the sun or corn and sunflowers waving in the wind. The bees from our colorful hives will be busy pollinating the crops and gathering nectar. 

Tucked into the trees are our two chicken coops. Our hens and roosters play an important role in the sustainable agricultural practices we use on the farm.  The shady portion of your campsite offers close views of our coops.  While our feathered friends free range during the week we usually keep them contained to their runs and coops during the busier weekend.

On the little crest behind the field portion of your site is chairs and a little table tucked into the circle of young fruit trees.  This is the perfect spot to watch for fireflies or sip your coffee as you welcome the day.

If you pass by the chicken coops and head Southeast you can walk down into our lush forest.  If you are quiet you are certain to see birds, squirrels, chipmunks and deer as you walk along the creek and explore the mossy rocks and tiny waterfalls.  There is a marked bush wack trail to help guide you on a ramble over fallen trees and between breaks in the historic stone walls to the O&W Rail Trail or feel free to wander our woods. If you cross the creek and walk up the hill you will come out onto the O&W Rail Trail. This 27 mile trail is perfect for hiking, biking and strolling. In some segments it is smoothly paved and others it is gravel. From this trail you can access multiple parks, libraries and museums if you are looking for a long hike or ride.  

Our lovely ladies provide us with delicious and colorful eggs each day. Your breakfast at the farm can't get any fresher... sunny side up eggs dripping yolk onto fresh local bread, fresh melons and berries still warm from the sun, sweet honey and local milk in your coffee. A true farm to table meal is possible year round in our beautiful valley!   Most weekends we offer a breakfast basket filled with goodies from our farm and other local growers.

We are centrally located between Kingston, Kerhonkson, Woodstock and New Paltz and all are about a scenic 20 minutes drive. The NYS Thruway is less than 10 minutes away if you are travelling through. 

The Rondout Valley is home to multiple breweries, amazing restaurants, luxurious spas, places to kayak, fish, swim... or you could spend your entire visit at the farm reading a good book and enjoying beautiful sunsets.


-We are a working farm that uses sustainable organic methods.  There are bugs (ants, ticks, bees, mosquitos, etc) and areas with long grass.  We keep the grass at the campsites short but you will have long grass around you.  That long grass is home to numerous kinds of birds that only live in that type of habitat.  Poison ivy is also possible when out in nature, we do NOT spray any chemicals on ANY of our land.  

-The sites are within earshot to the chicken coops, we DO have roosters and you WILL hear them.

-There are wild animals around the farm.  You should store away all food and garbage when you are not at the campsite.  We would like to keep them cautious of humans and not a nuisance!

-On holiday weekends we do have a minimum night stay.

The property is located perfectly by Kingston and Woodstock. The farm is very private and tranquil. Firewood, honey, and farm fresh eggs provided. best of all, we collected eggs from the hens in the morning with the farmer and her adorable daughter. The chickens are sweet and friendly and my boys both cuddled chickens in their arms. So educational and memorable!

Accesible from NYC! We took the trailways to Kingston and then a Lyft to the campsite.

It was a lot of my friends first time camping and they all really loved it, especially the roosters coming to say hello :) We took the path the rail trail the next day but it was less of a trail and more of a bushwack hahah

What an amazing adventure at The Rose Comb Rooster. We spent 2 nights on the property with our trailer and C class which fit perfectly at the site surrounded by beautiful wild flowers. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular. From the breakfast basket with farm raised eggs, oatmeal bread, honey and apples to the beer can roaster chickens we were completely immersed in the delicacies of farm life. Kara and her adorable family even came to rescue us with a battery jump on our final day. We will definitely be back. So much gratitude to Rose Comb for making our stay upstate wonderful for all.

We had an incredible weekend camping on Kara's property! The land is absolutely gorgeous, and the campsite had plenty of room. Kara left us a bundle of wood, and we were easily able to grab more wood from their self-serve honor system wood collection as needed. The site is nestled into a beautiful field, which is currently full of rich fall colors. I hope to come back soon!

The campsite was just like it was explained and was easy to find. The chicken farm was amazing and the owner explained to our kids about the chicken farm which was also a great experience.
Would highly recommend.

The camp site was very private and my kids had a great time. We had a wonderful experience interacting with the chickens, getting fresh eggs, and learning many things about where our food came from with the host Kara.
The field was flat and large enough to set up tents easily, and we had a wonderful time staying there with friends and family without feeling cramped at all. I would love to come back and visit again.

It was so lovely to share that time with your family and see the joy on the kids faces as they got to interact with the chickens. It is so fulfilling as a host and farmer. Many thanks!

This is a great site for newer campers looking for a secluded spot but still want to be close enough to town to explore. The site is spacious, easy to get to, and there is enough space to fit several cars and tents. There were two other camping groups while we were there but we were all far enough away to not hear too much noise from the other sites. The site is very sunny, so bring a canopy or rain cover. A grill grate is helpful if you plan to cook over the fire pit. Unfortunately, it rained one of the days we were there so we were unable to explore the grounds but from what I could see, there were lots of places to explore surrounding the camp sites.

Our stay at Kara’s farm was fantastic. The site is spacious and private, and the surrounding area is beautiful. Our kids loved seeing the chickens and garden vegetables at the farm. The breakfast basket looked and tested delicious. Unfortunately, it rained during the night, and we ended up leaving one night early because of more rain in the forecast. Kara was kind enough to offer us a voucher for the night we missed and we’ll be back next year!

Kara was a wonderful host with a beautiful farm. She picked gorgeous flowers for us from her garden, and there were farm fresh eggs available straight from her chickens that were a few hundred yards from where we slept. Please do not be intimidated by the no spray farm- it's better for us, and the farm! Pack some citronella candles and light a fire for the bugs.

We will definitely be back!!
