About Rip Van Winkle Campground
Whatever your camping style is, we have the perfect spot for you. With 160 wooded acres, an entire mile of frontage on the Plattekill Creek, koi ponds, a stocked bass pond, handicapped accessible bathrooms and showers facilities, and 170 spacious sites, we can easily accommodate your needs and all types of camping equipment. We offer tent sites, electric and water hookup sites, and full service hookup sites. In addition to our back-in full service hookup sites, we also have many pull-through full service hookup sites.

We pride ourselves in keeping the park an exciting experience in nature. Our sites are all level and under mature trees, surrounded by shrubs, flowers and young trees. We keep all of this peace and beauty easily accessible for you with wide, well-maintained roads.

We invite you to come and explore each unique area of our park. Take a guided tour with one of our family members, ask questions, and find the perfect spot for your perfect getaway. Once you’ve found it, come for the day, the week, the month, or the season and enjoy all that Rip Van Winkle has to offer!

Happy Campers
“It's beautiful, and we loved it! The campsites were big and the campground itself was well kept and wooded. My sister visited with her two kids and there was a lot to keep them busy. We'll definitely be back again!”
- Shawn and Gina


Weekend By Bus
Never camped before and just want to try it out? Or just want to “pick up and go” without worrying about packing your gear, renting a car, or buying last minute necessities? Well, with our new package you can do just that! Jump on a bus headed for Kingston, NY and camp for the weekend! The new FREE Rip Van Winkle Shuttle has arrived and is ready to pick you up at the Kingston Bus Station. All you need to do is bring yourself, your friends and a sense of adventure and we provide the rest.

At the end of your stay the tent, sleeping bags, pillows, and air mattress are yours to keep. You can take them home with you if you’d like or store them at the campground so they are ready for you on your next visit.
