We’ve stayed at both the KOA and Rip Van Winkle Campgrounds in Saugerties, and Rip Van Winkle is our favorite by far. The grounds are pretty, with a winding gravel road that leads through a fairly heavily wooded forest and past a creek (we like the creekside sites the best). The tent sites are huge so you never feel like... More

This was our second camping trip and we had a good time here. Our site was large and had many tall trees. The camp has loads of fun things for the kids and a great store for all your needs. We found the bathrooms and showers to be clean. The heated pool was a pleasure in September. Will definitely be... More

We love Rip van Winkle campground. This is our second year as seasonals and we come up pretty much every weekend. We love the tranquility, the spaciousness of the site, The friendliness of the staff and The other campers. While they have a pool, we enjoy the flowing river where we can bring the dogs to cool off. And there... More

Nice big, level site. Bathrooms were clean. Reasonable to navigate with a 35' class A rig. My only complaint was bath houses that cost a quarter to take a shower. Seems like after paying $50 for a site that they shouldn't buckle and dime you like that.

When we arrived we were greeted with a smile, even though we arrived late. I made an error in my reservation and the office was extremely accommodating. We were escorted to our site where we discovered our cable didn't work and one of the owners spent over an hour helping us get it working. Eric was very knowledgable about the... More

I visited this place on July 4th weekend for 3 nights. I stayed on the River's edge tent site with 2 kids, ages 6 and 8. Great time! Property was very clean, and enough activities to do over a weekend for everyone. Pool area was clean, but a bit too many people for my taste. The ice cream truck and... More

The staff were really great - helpful and friendly. The property had a rustic feel - it is located in a forest. Sites had lots of space. There was plenty of room between sites. Roads and sites were not paved but the entire property was well maintained. A nice mix of day campers and seasonals. Also, lots of tent sites... More

Awesome memories made here. What a lovely place. The staff are friendly. The bathroom are very clean. Our tent site by the river was beautiful. We had a great time swimming, fishing and sitting by the campfire. We enjoyed our visit and will be back soon. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

Stayed in a cabin for the first time. Amazing! Stayed outside to cook and sit by the fire. Came inside to a warm cozy cabin. Fridge, tv and wifi were extras. Back deck with a view of a small lake was cherry on top. Already looking to book again!
