We are sorry that our first day open to the public was rough. The winter was brutal, and our volunteers were working hard on airfield preparations, with air shows just a month away. We are especially dismayed that you didn't find the 60-plus airplanes, cars...More

Some interesting aircraft on display but mostly a collection of dilapidated and rusting hulks. Would have been more helpful if there was more information available or someone to offer a guided tour. Over priced entry for what it is.

No camping on grounds to my knowledge, but various campgrounds near the area. Google campgrounds rhinebeck, ny and you should find something that fits your needs!
