Nestled in among blankets of ferns in a mature pine forest, this campsite features a queen size bed for two and dome pop up tent that will sleep an additional 6 people. The site is a 5 minute walk away from the Little Schoharie Creek with several swimming holes and a 15 minute hike through the forest to the waterfall. Guests should be aware that we currently have 1 additional campsite on our property available for short-term rental. A Creekside RV & Tent Campsite which sleeps 6-8 in the RV and an additional 4-8 people in a tent. You need to bring your own tent or add one of ours as an extra at check-out. This site is available to book through https://www.hipcamp.com/u/forestfarmcampsites. Guests must be respectful of their use of public spaces at all times. We request that groups remain in one public area (waterfall, swimming holes, frog pond, etc.) for no more than 2-3 hours at a time. There are numerous places to relax by the water and in the forest. We are confident that we can all work together to ensure that all guests enjoy themselves. This is a family-friendly campsite with the health and safety of our guests at our forefront. Children will love to visit our Fairy & Gnome Glen, featuring fairy/gnome houses and lean-to's made out of items found in the forest. Guests are encouraged to enjoy existing and/or build their own fairy or gnome houses and lean to's. Birdwatchers will enjoy the many species that pass through and live in the forest and along the creek. We have already seen our resident bald eagle four times this spring. No guns, weapons or fireworks are allowed on our property. We provide fire starting materials including kindling, newspaper and matches.

Pets must be leashed at all times, including at the campsite and hand washing station, as we have chickens and young children in the nearby vicinity. In addition, the fern-covered under-story that makes our forest so magical would be quickly destroyed by an active dog. There are also endangered plant species on the property that we are protecting. Please help us maintain our favorite features of our forest by using the dog tie hooks that are attached to the deck.
