My girlfriend and I were the first ones to stay on Richard's property, and we really loved it! The area is quite private - on arrival he and his dog Ruby greeted us immediately and took us back over half a mile to the camping area. There is a pretty large pond with trails through the surrounding woods, and he had left a canoe, two kayaks and a paddleboard by the pond for us to use. He told us we could camp wherever we saw fit, and we were the only group there that night. We set up pretty close to the pond next to a fire pit, and it was a lovely spot! It felt peaceful and secluded.

It should be noted that the cabin and outdoor kitchen mentioned on the listing are pretty basic and could use a little work (the host admitted these are still a work in process), but the cabin has clean running water and a shower/bathroom.

I would recommend this site more for the property itself rather than the cabin. For guests eager for a beautiful, quiet place to set up a tent with a few basic but convenient amenities, Richard's farm is perfect. We absolutely loved it and would like to come back one day!

We had a great experience at the Flying J Farm. Richard and his dog Ruby met us at the entrance of his farm and took us down to the campsite. The hipcamp is a beautiful space around a pond with several spots to set up a campsite. We set up camp next to the pond where a fire ring was already established. There were trails around the pond and we found blackberry bushes along the way. We enjoyed canoeing in the morning as Richard has kayaks, a canoe and paddleboard available for guest use. Overall this is a great escape that is still close to the city, we hope to come back in the Fall.

Spent 2 night’s camping with my boyfriend at the farm and had an excellent experience. First a warm welcome by Richard’s goldie ‘Ruby’, followed by a tour of the amazing,
huge piece of farm land. We felt welcomed right away! We chose a wonderful spot in the shade, right along the pond. The fire ring was perfect, with an abundance of firewood provided by Richard and the woods. Our favorite part was Ruby spending the day with us :) Richard stopped by ar sunset to take her home and that was truly a beautiful day. We would definitely stop by again if ever in the area. Thank you again Richard for being such a wondeful host and letting us share a fantastic moment on your farm. Hope to see you and Ruby someday on our visit back to NY.
