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.

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.
