Flat Creek Island at Hoofbeats
Years of water flow have created a small island through the center of a VERY special place, Hoofbeats Holistic. You will have access to our secluded, mature forest where you can hear the soft neighs and nickers of horses directly from your campsite. Hoofbeats exists as a private natural board facility, focused on honoring and respecting the instinctual needs of the domestic horse. Our friendly, socialized herd will delight you with natural beauty. We invite you to watch or interact with horses living in our unique environment. Flat Creek Island is easily accessible from your land based campsite. Nearby there are Breweries, a Meadery, Winery’s, Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame, Howe Caverns and hiking at Vroomans Nose. Enjoy a visit to the local farm stand on your way to the Historic District on Main St. in quaint and quirky Sharon Springs. There you will find unique shops, eateries and beautifully restored architecture. Join us in Paradise.
