Farm Stay

Relax, Retreat, and Revive at The Heron!
Camping at The Heron

Our property offers a unique backdrop for camping excursions and outdoor exploration. We are surrounded by 400 acres of woods, wetlands and pastures, which means there is a lot of space for every camper to feel as if they have the place to themselves. We boast over 4 miles of wooded trails, so bring your bikes and your hiking shoes and prepare to be immersed in the natural surroundings and landscapes.

Our sandy beach is open to campers during their stay. Please sign a waiver at check-in before swimming. Fishing is available too, and is catch and release.  Boats, kayaks and paddle boards are NOT allowed on the pond at this time. Our public facilities include hot showers, outhouses, porta johns, and safe drinking water. Our on-site Farm Store, which features meat, mushrooms and produce raised here on our organic farm, is self-serve and open to campers. Plan to grill a steak on an open fire!

We allow pets to come with campers, but we have strict rules that will be enforced. There will be an additional fee at check-in for each of them.

All pets must be leashed and restrained by their registered owner at all times. Owners must be in complete control of pets at all times and pick up after them. No excessive barking will be tolerated. Uncontrolled and unleashed pets will be asked to leave the property. No pets are permitted on the beach at anytime.

In 2020, we opened our family and community campground after primarily hosting campers during large music festivals. At this time, we are closely following COVID-19 guidelines set out by New York State and our county Health Department. These include maintaining safe distancing and frequent sanitation of all public facilities.

The Heron Campground offers a variety of options when staying on the land.


Pack a tent or load up your RV! Many of our sites have electricity. Most sites have a spot for your car, but some wooded areas do require that you hike in with your gear. Campsites range from primitive and secluded woodland nooks, to spots closer to amenities and facilities. We can help you find the perfect site!


Rent a cozy space like the Sanctuary Yurt, the Cafe in the Woods, one of our pop-up units or a camper. You’ll need to provide your own bedding and cooler, but we’ll have a picnic table and fire ring ready for your stay! Link to our Airbnb
