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. We now offer a very different experience including a hotel, glamping, workshops and much more.
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. The defunct zoo sits on 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!
