A Relaxing Camping Experience in New York’s Catskill Mountains

Do you need a break from your hectic schedule and countless responsibilities? At Rip Van Winkle Campground we believe that everyone deserves a slow down. We invite you to leave the fast life behind and escape to our 160-acre woodland paradise. As our guests you can relax, recharge, and revive in one of the most beautiful places on earth while you and your loved ones share special moments that will last a lifetime.

Your relaxation is our business and we take that very seriously.

Rip Van Winkle provides the best of both worlds! We offer spacious sites to tuck you away from the world while still providing the modern conveniences necessary for your comfort.

We are conveniently located in the Catskill/Hudson Valley Region, 2 1⁄2 miles from the New York State Thruway (I-87) Exit 20 Saugerties, NY.

Come visit us in the magical land of Rip Van Winkle!
