We stayed in the group campsite over July 4th weekend. The site is clean, the staff is friendly. Our problem is that the neighboring group campsites were too loud after quiet hours. They blared music, talked and shouted at night, partied until after 12 every night that we stayed. We complained several times to the main office. Throughout the night... More

We stayed at Rip Van Winkle over July 4th weekend. We had a pull-thru site for our travel trailer and it was perfect. The site was *huge* and wooded to the back and side of us. We liked that the sites were wooded and shady - we prefer that to being out in an open field. We were next to... More

Very pleased. Rented cabin #100 for two nights midweek, just me (mom) and my two young kids ages 6 & 3. Cleanest campsite I've ever experienced both in NY and CA. Excellent staff, thoughtful amenities, extremely clean bathrooms, beautiful grounds. Only need for improvement is the game arcade. It needs updating.

We had a great time in a group site at the campground. Our site was private, near a playground and bathrooms. The facilities were very clean and well kept. When I made my reservation, I was asked if we were planning to be a quieter family group or a "party" group because they wanted to put us on the right... More

We spent a week at Rip Van Winkle Campgrounds. The reviews we read and photographs we viewed left us totally unprepared for such a dark and dreary atmosphere. It had positive features as well and I will start with those. Rip Van Winkle is safe, clean and well cared for. Numerous hosts wearing brown shirts were visible performing lots of... More

We stayed for 2 nights and were very happy...the bathrooms and showers were clean...sites very nice and staff very friendly! Free coffee was nice and very good...also the camp store and laundry mat were very reasonably priced. These amenities were there to be helpful not to gouge the customer... will definitely return and try a camping cabin!

Rip Van Winkle is a great campground located in the Catskills - we stayed in a pull-through site and were kind of dreading it because most of them are not convenient and lack trees. Having just purchased an A-Frame pop-up camper we wanted it to be easy camping our first time out. Well no problems here. The pull-through sites are... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at RVW Campgrounds. We were also extremely lucky with the weather. Our campsite was a little small - but not a big deal. We were right next to the toilet - about 40 yards away, which made it convenient, except that at night, when we were trying to sleep, there was a bit of traffic... More

Tent camping at Rip as I write this review...this is a great place to stay with a family. We have tent camped here three weekends over the summer Memorial Day, July, and Labor Day weekends. Our first trip was near the front entrance to the campground which I found too loud and busy with traffic (there are plenty of seasonal... More
