Keeping the memory alive and breathing new life into the property!

The Catskill Game Farm closed in 2006 – it was the first privately owned zoo in the US, operational from 1933-2006 and housed over 2,000 animals.  Among their collection included giraffes, rhinos, pygmy hippos, capybara, and many more.  The now defunct zoo itself is approximately 150 acres with 3.5 miles of paved walkways, 130 structures and connects to a 20+ mile mountain biking/hiking trail system with amazing views, waterfalls and swimming holes!

NOW: It has a boutique hotel (in the former Giraffe House), Glamping (glamorous camping), is often visited by people for the sake of nostalgia, urban exploration and/or photography/film production.
