Our campsites (we maintain three mowed areas) are located in a field next to a brook near a grove of walnut trees on the former Maybrook Lodge and motel grounds. The sites are a few minutes walk from the main house but far enough away you have privacy. There is a great swimming hole on the property I need to photograph and another a half a mile away. We are an organic farm practicing permaculture so you can pick your own veggies or get a lesson from the farmer. If need be our neighbor sells the most delicious cooked homemade pierogies and Kelder's Farm across the road has ice cream and a fully stocked farm store. Beautiful views of Mohonk Mountain and a million fire flies too.

The vibe at Field of Dreams
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We booked this camp spot at the last minute (with just 90 minutes notice) and arrived to find that we were the first ever campers they had hosted and given the short notice, they hadn’t prepared as much as they had planned to for their first ever campers.
Nonetheless, Kevin, our host, was very hospitable and showed us around, showed us some local plant remedies that grow on the property, the pile of kindling and firewood they had ready, and offered us vegetables from the garden.
The property is huge, and first appearances are very deceiving. Driving in, our first impression was an aging motel and several houses clustered together that are being renovated. Behind this was a large property with a gorgeous field full of vegetables, wildflowers, meadow, and woods. There are three campsites that are quite private and lovely (more so than the map would indicate), each in their own unique ways, and each are near access to a small lovely, private creek with swimming, although the water was a bit low when we had arrived. One is very secluded in a patch of field and feels very wild; one is closer to the farm near a meadow of wildflowers, and the other one is near a stand of walnut trees and next to another open field.
We stayed just one night very quickly as we were just on a short day and a half jaunt to get out of the city and explore. We enjoyed the sunset light bouncing off the creek through the trees, and watching hawks fly over the meadow. We built a campfire just to toast marshmallows on, and listened to the grasses rustle with the wind and some invisible animals. The stars at night were gorgeous too.
The mixture of forest and meadow throughout the property was really lovely, and we could not have asked for more hospitable hosts. We could see them preparing the solar showers, path lights, tents, and other amenities for the campers they had thought would be their first campers later.
The farm is a worker owned co op, and it’s also fairly new. They have a lovely vision, and I can imagine how this place will become even nicer as they develop their camping areas and farm even further.
Tanyth wasn't around, but she gave us the number of the farmer that was, and the directions were easy to follow. The site is down the path from the houses, and easy to access. There are three seperate sites, all situated in a field of wildflowers, along a creek. There was a little noise from a neighboring property, but once it started to get dark, the natural sounds drowned that out. There is a really great called The Spy, and several small grocery stores / farm stands very close. Only there for one night, but really enjoyed our stay.
The Solidarity Farm was just lovely. Our campsite was right by a beautiful stream and pretty well secluded. Beautiful scenery and the folks from the farm could not have been more welcoming. A friend and I were in town mostly to gather mushrooms, and they came down to our site, bringing some delicious tomatoes with them and we had a nice chat about mushrooms and they're (still very young) project. I would definitely recommend.
Though our trip was rushed, we had the most peaceful sleep, in lush surroundings, awoke to the tranquil sounds of birds and insects, swam in the creek and felt completely rejuvenated. The site was peaceful and private, exceeding all expectations! Thanks Tanyth and Kevin, we can't wait to return.
I stayed at Solidarity Farm with my girlfriend and her friend. Once you get past the run down motel, the property is gorgeous. The campsites are all along a flowing creek and have wide open fields surrounding them. We spent our evening enjoying live music and amazing beer at Arrowood Brewery, which is about a mile away. That is definitely my recommendation for a nearby destination. We slept well enough at Solidarity farm despite some coyote howls. Although there is one campsite with a standup tent that contains a mattress, we set up our own tent at a different site. There were some tough and pointy roots that might damage a weak tent bottom, so I'd recommend bringing an extra footprint tarp for your tent. The next morning we took a peek at the impressive vegetable garden, tended to by Kevin the farmer. Kevin is friendly and down to earth. I would be happy to camp here again with a group of friends.
This site was very pretty. However, I didn't feel like this was worth $50 a night. We made friends with the group camping near us, and apparently they received a full tour of the property. We we're not offered this tour but would have really benefited from it.
Wow what can I say, absolutely amazing place! The field was huge so much space, we camped right by the river it was so peaceful and we went for a hike around the place they had beautiful flowers that we were offered to pick for ourselves to take home. It had rained the day before and Kevin had made sure the spot we were going to camp in was not muddy. We felt the friendly and homey environment. They had bathrooms and swings with a view of the mountains. Thank you so much to Kevin and Tanyth for letting us camp here definitely worth it!
It was my first time camping and Tanyth was always available on her phone to solve all questions I had about her property when she wasn’t there in person. She received my friends and I, the tent was exactly as announced, just like the rest of her site.
It was a cloudy weekend and solar shower wasn’t heating up as expected, so she let us use another electrical shower instead.
We felt absolutely comfortable during our stay.
