Well kept trails run throughout the property, There is also a pond at the campsite for your group to swim and bathe in. This pond is fed by a small unnamed creek. The campsite and pond are totally private for you and your camper group to enjoy. This place is so private you can run around naked.The site is now open for the winter as well. The tent is equipped with a woodstove and a wall to wall thermal rug.

A beautiful refuge surrounded by ferns and between two creeks. One creek is particular suited for wading into on a hot summers day. The water is clean and cold. About 40 acres of old growth forest and Christmas trees. There are well kept walking trails that leads into the forest where you will encounter massive eastern white pines and red oaks.
The refuge is accessible by a car. You can drive right up to the site. There is plenty of sun and/or shade. The refuge is minutes away from the Catskill state forest preserve. The famous Ver Noy Kill waterfall was once a logging site. It contains three pools. Sundown farm is close to many famous towns such as Stone Ridge, Pheonicia, Woodstock, New Paltz, Kerhonkson, Accord, Rosendale,and Ellenville. The pristine Ashokan Reservoir a major supplier of water to New York City is minutes away. The site and its acreage are totally private and has exceptional beauty. It is clean and has little trace of human intervention except for the overnight site. Our newest addition is a farm pond. The water is refreshingly cool originating from an unnamed creek at Sundown. Scientifically speaking the colder the pond, the cleaner the pond. Welcome to Sundown!

The overnight site is situated in a patch of ferns between two creeks.
There are many well kept trails that cover the property. Bring your binoculars and observe the variety of birds. Bring a compass to practice trailblazing.
Search the creek for newts and crayfish. On land it should be easy to discover the red efts that meander around the forest floor. If you visit the farm pond you should find bullfrogs and fish. Of course a forest would not be a forest without the fawn and its mother not far away.
The days may be hot but the nights are cool for a nice restful sleep.
A charcoal grill is provided so bring some charcoal and lighter fluid. Special thanks to our last campers, Ricky Jaen's party for installing a clothesline with clothespins. Stocked with kitchen supplies. Pots, pans, dishes, utensils, BBQ grill, and two coolers. A supply of wood is on us. There is ample water on site. If you need more there is a free public artesian well available down the road. An outdoor shower is provided but why not go for a dip in the Red brook which is on the property 100 feet from your tent. A wood stove is provided if it gets cold at night. You can even cook on it! If you never saw a virgin forest this one is as close as it gets. There are trails that lead to quite massive Red oak and White pine trees. The nights are so quite you can hear the sounds of the babbling brook in the distance. Come up and enjoy some rest and relaxation.
Both Sundown and Cherrytown are premier roads for perfect cycling.
