The Catskill Game Farm is located in Catskill, NY. The game farm was the first privately owned zoo in the United States. It opened its doors in 1933 and was active until 2006, when all animals and equipment were auctioned off. Today the zoo lies in ruins, with a boutique hotel that will be opening in July 2019 and glamping sites. Today you can explore the zoo on your own with permission from the owners.
