Food and Lodging:

  • If you don’t want to camp, then call American Hotel Sharon Springs, NY or Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, NY to book a room (Don’t wait since rooms will fill up.)
  • Bring your drinks and food since it’s rural here and restaurants are very limited and have odd hours.
  • Restaurants: I would suggest BUT call ahead to see of they are open (American Hotel Sharon Springs, Double Day Cafe Cooperstown, Tryon Inn Cherry Valley NY, Rose and Kettle Cherry Valley NY, Sharon Tavern Sharon, NY
  • We will bring in Dinner on Friday and Saturday Night but breakfast and lunch will prove difficult due to local restaurants are too small to handle a group our size.


  • Yes, you can camp here and even bring a small pop up camper.
  • Please don’t drive across the fields since that is our hay that feeds our horses and driving on it will kill it and put ruts in fields… meaning horses go hungry and I end these events so make sure everyone knows… Don’t drive across fields.
  • Bathroom is an outhouse.
  • Yes, we have firewood for your campfire.
  • You don’t need a Land Rover or 4WD to attend.
  • If you attend or reserve a ticket you are holding us harmless for any accidents, death or damage to you, someone else, or your vehicle. You’re an adult and accept all responsibility for your actions or fault of anyone else, regardless if it was negligence on our part or anyone.
  • Please haul out what you haul in and don’t leave any trash and don’t drive across our fields.
  • Yes, you can bring your “Well Behaved Kids and Dog”
  • Yes, you can come for 1 day or Part of a Day
  • Yes, you are expected to have fun and enjoy the wild life, outdoors and wonderful people that will become life long friends.
  • No, I will not be wearing a mask nor will many of us, so if your concerned, then just keep your distance.

Any thing I missed just ask paul@helderburg.com and looking forward to seeing you soon. Again please book your room early if you don’t want to camp, and be sure you can make it before reserving a ticket. We want to get food order accurate and try to find some place to feed us as a group for breakfast.
