THE OLD GAME FARM
We want you to have the best possible experience staying at The Old Game Farm
Your room is in what was once the Giraffe Barn at the old Catskill Game Farm, a world famous zoo that closed in 2006. Today it's a beautiful 200+ acre property that offers you the chance to relax, unplug, and experience nature taking back an American landmark.

Our County has an Amazing Tourism Website which can show you some of the great things to do in the area!
There are 25+ miles of maintained trails off of our property. They are maintained by the Round Top Mountain Bike Association but are used for hiking as well. If you plan to explore them we recommend downloading the Trail Forks App, which then will allow you to be able to follow this map on your phone. The Old Game Farm connects to the “Jurassic Trail” which is a blue trail in the lower right corner when the map first loads on your phone. Your camp-keeper will be able to help direct you to this trail if you are interested.
EXPLORING THE ZOO
We ask that you do not explore it after dark as there are many hazards. Please refrain from using your vehicle to explore the abandoned zoo. The African area has several moats you should be aware of to not fall into.
This year is one of the worst tick seasons ever. Please be mindful of ticks while you are exploring the grounds, we are tucked in 200+ acres of wilderness so please be prepared to repel and protect against ticks and mosquitoes during your stay.
To respect your privacy, we are not tidying up rooms unless requested
We are taking all the precautions and following all the most recent guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
When bringing children into the abandoned zoo area please be aware that many of the areas were not designed for the public, as well as much of the protective fencing on the property no longer exists. Please keep a close eye on your children, do not let them roam without supervision and do not let them climb on anything, as it may be unsafe for them and could damage equipment around the property.
All dogs must be leashed when walking around the property.
