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 United States, operational from 1933-2006 and housed over 2,000 animals. Among their collection included giraffes, rhinos, pygmy hippos, capybara, and many more. The zoo itself is approximately 150 acres with 3.5 miles of paved walkways and 130 structures. It is now often visited by people for the sake of nostalgia, urban exploration and/or photography.
If you have any additional questions please feel free contact us.
Tentrr is an online marketplace (similar to Air B&B) that connects local landowners with anyone seeking to explore the great outdoors (or in this case - an abandoned zoo!). It includes the most crucial and basic of needs: the perfect site, and the actual equipment with which to set up camp. Through their booking system you can book either of our sites for your overnight experience!
Come EXPLORE the abandoned relic of what once was a thriving zoo in The Catskill Mountains!
