SOME OF OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONs
INFORMATION - Is there a site where we can learn more about the property?
Yes, please visit theoldgamefarm.com
WHAT DO I DO WITH MY GARBAGE? - In the back right corner of the main parking lot, there is a gate with two dumpsters. Upon check-out, please drop your garbage off at the dumpsters. There is a regular garbage and recycle dumpster.
THE PROPERTY - Is The Old Game Farm open to the public?
No. At this time, only guests staying at the Inn or at one of our Tentrr sites have access to explore the property.
THE PROPERTY - Are there still animals in the zoo?
The Catskill Game Farm closed its doors in 2006. The property is no longer an active zoo but rather is a place where guests can stay at and explore the abandoned areas of what was once America's largest private zoo. We recently added a few cows, goats and chickens but there is no longer an active zoo on the property.

Only guests staying on the property have access to explore the abandoned zoo as well as the connecting 25+ miles of maintained trails (for hiking as well as biking) at their leisure. Learn more here (RMBA Trails)
PUBLIC TRANSIT ACCESS - Can you get here using public transit?
We have had people take Ubers/Lifts/Cabs from the Hudson Amtrak station to the property, but it is very difficult to get a ride back to the train station from The Old Game Farm. We recommend taking your own car or renting a car to get to The Old Game Farm.

STAY - Where do I go to the bathroom?
The site comes with an outdoor camp toilet (you'll line the loo with a provided CleanWaste bag, do your duty, then remove the bag, tie it off, and throw it in the garbage). You'll find the empty loo inside your tent when you arrive - you'll be able to move it to a more private location since it's fully portable.
DISCLAIMER - This year is one of the worst tick seasons ever. Please be mindful of ticks while you are camping, we are tucked in 200+ acres of wilderness so please be prepared to repel and protect against ticks during your stay.
