The sites are nice and private and they obviously work at making it a destination to camp at with the multiple play areas, swimming hole and pond. We unfortunately didn't have the time to stay and explore the campground but if we are in the area again we will stay again.

Very friendly staff, very clean, superior amenities you can't believe! My friends and I love camping here. Nice campers - both seasonal and tent campers! Very nice general store! I highly recommend getting meat at catskill smoke shop and pickles from the pickle barrell in town. Then come to Rips and make a feast for yourself and friends!

We camped here in August 2013. It is a beautiful campground. We stayed in a travel trailer in the Ledges area. The campground is wooded with a beautiful stream going through it. I'm very fussy when it comes to campgrounds, I want woods, privacy, friendly staff, and beautiful scenery. This campground fit the bill. Honestly, we didn't use the campground... More

This was our first visit to Rip Van Winkle campgrounds.After reading some of the negative reviews, we were hesitant. We decided to take a chance as this location was perfect for our five day stay. I must say we had a wonderful time. The sites were huge and wooded. We have never had so much room to move around. The... More

Went tent camping. Sites are nice and wooded. Stream is a lot of fun for the kids. Pool is just ok. Bass pond with paddle boats is just ok. General store was limited but prices were very reasonable. Free coffee was nice. Employees very nice. Overall would go back again

Great family run campground. Sites are nestled into the trees very nicely. Lots of privacy. Nice clean restrooms and showers. Very nice camp store with good selection of everything from rv parts to swim paraphernalia for children plus candy and snacks. Owners couldn't be nicer and grounds are maintained very well. Conveniently located close to many historical sites such as... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in late April. This is a great campground with a variety of sites that can handle the largest motor homes to the smallest pop-ups. We travel in a large motor home with car-in-tow. Location is fairly close to the new york state thruway, route-32, and Route-9w. W-E-S is conveniently located for... More

We travel in a 38 ft fifth wheel, not full timers but we go often. I called this campsite about 2 hours out and Brian helped me with the reservation. Not thinking we'd make it in before closing he left our info for us to pick up and when I asked about pets he said "absolutely". This alone had a... More
