We are first time hip campers and while new to the community, we are well seasoned backpackers, car campers and just general get out pull over and enjoy the journey adventurers. We were seeking a location that was easily situated between a couple state parks that offered privacy and some creature comforts as we had our little one coming along with us this time for a few days.

Driving up to Sandbar Farm we didn’t know what to expect, of course the pictures looked wonderful, and the location seemed about right… wow were our expectations completely blown out of the water when we were greeted by Jackie and Rob waving as we pulled down the driveway. Bright smiles, happy horses and a chicken or two (whom poop a delicious brilliantly orange breakfast egg) alongside a very friendly Timmy made us feel welcomed- while Rob and Jackie showed us to our site. We quickly settled in and setup camp. Jackie and Rob shared wonderful stories of the area, their farm, their passion for animals while giving us privacy. You could easily tell we were amongst great folks who were truly some of the most genuine people you could ever meet.

The site we selected was private, within walking distance of amenities on the farm, easy to drive to, nicely shaded with clear views of the night sky, the fields of wild flowers, horses and had soft ground cover. The farm is well kept with happy animals about and at sun rise perhaps you might see a doe wondering through. Trash removal, water and wood were available on site and Rob and Jackie, made sure we had what was needed to enjoy our stay.

We came to explore Letchworth and enjoyed it’s immense vistas, deep gorge and abundance of trails. Rob recommended we make it a point to visit even closer Stony Brook and we are so thankful we did. With a cool crisp creek / pool, within minutes of the farm it was refreshing after a long day of hiking. Back at Sandbar Farms, we were greeted with Pony rides (Thank you Puddles) a massive bon fire and some of the best people you could ever met, sharing laughter, memories of adventures and brilliant ideas.

You could easily tell our hosts were kind of people whom were genuine and authentic, down to earth and driven by their passion for all those in their care. It felt as if we were camping on land that belonged to friends whom we haven’t seen from grade school many many moons ago. Jackie invited us to go Strawberry picking (in season) & delicious, made way for some fresh baked crepes over the campfire for breakfast. Rob shared some great stories, encouraging us to fall in love with the area and horses. Jackie and Rob were easily available should anything arise and you could tell they would give as much or as little friendly privacy as needed (we naturally found the perfect balance) coming and going as we pleased throughout the day. By night, the stars and moon were bright against the deep gray sky, while moon light casted shadows as we walked around the fields at night watching the fire flies twinkle and horses settle for the evening.

In short, regardless if you staying for two nights or 6, with family or with friends, looking to lay back drink beer and poke a fire or seeking a day full of adventure, Sandbar farms is your base camp, and your guides are truly world class. We had way more fun than we anticipated and our little one surely found her brightest smiles camping out at Sandbar Farms. Probably one of the best camping experiences we’ve had. Thank you Jackie for sharing your land with us!

Jacqueline and her husband Rob were great folks; very kind and welcoming. They made sure we had some firewood and everything we needed for our weekend. It was an excellent spot for stargazing. Overall it was a great camping experience.

Jackie and Rob are absolutely lovely people. They greeted me at the barn, introduced me to their dogs, and showed me to the site, which was private, easy to drive to, and furnished with a fire-pit and plenty of firewood.

Jackie and Rob shared fascinating stories as we strolled around their property one evening, meeting their horses, donkeys and chickens. They are truly salt-of-the-earth folks and it's evident they are deeply devoted to their horse-rescue operation. I was extremely appreciative of the time they took to show me around their beautiful property and answer all the questions I had about their animals and operation.

Overall, best camping experience I've had using HipCamp. The hosts are some of the nicest people I've met in my life.

Site and hosts were great. No bathroom. Sweet, beautiful and happy farm animals were very happy to have the visit and attention from our kids. It made the stay very special. Awoke one morning to sweet sounds of a nearby horse chomping on some grass. There was a humming during the night that we were told was farm equipment on another property nearby. Overall, had a nice stay and would recommend.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Sandbar Farm. They were extremely welcoming and attentive to whatever we needed. Everything about our stay was great. We had the privacy we wanted while also getting to meet some very cool people and animals, easy access to town and parks if we wanted to get up and do something, and they were super dog friendly. We were able to buy some firewood for our personal campfire and paid a little extra to go on a trail ride with the horses (our favorite part of the trip by far). I definitely recommend stopping by Jacquelines and Rob’s farm. They made us feel like just a couple of friends stopping by for a visit. You can just tell how much love, time, and energy they put into their animals and their land. It was the perfect mini camping trip to relax after the craziest months ever!!

The sweetest donkeys ever Getting comfortable on 9er & Gunnar before our trail ride with Jaqueline and Rob! The most welcoming doggo Timmy came to visit our site a couple of times..he was the fluffiest love bug!!!

Jackie and Rob were such kind, welcoming hosts. The farm was beautiful! The sweet dogs kept us company and the horses were beautiful. This was the perfect place to stay for daytime trips to both Letchworth and Stony Brook State Parks.
