Kerhonkson sits along Route 209, right between Catskill Park and the Minnewaska State Preserve. Kerhonkson appeals to rock climbers who don't want to pay the higher prices of New Paltz while still having access to the crag. Gardeners and conservationists alike will find inspiration at the Catskill Native Nursery, specializing in nursery-propagated North American perennials, fruits, shrubs and trees.
Restaurants in Kerhonkson tend toward family fare, with the Kerhonkson Diner and the tiny Outpost BBQ serving simple and hearty food. The Rough Cut Brewing Co pours their own craft beers and serves a full menu of gastropub options to local families.
Kelder's Farm goes above and beyond as Kerhonkson's local farm stand. In addition to offering fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers, they have an annual community supported agriculture (CSA) program, and are one of the largest u-pick farms in the area with berries, apples, pumpkins and more offered seasonally. They also have family entertainment, including a mini golf course, birthday parties, and hay rides in the fall. Kelder's is also the home of Roadside America attraction Gnome Chomsky, which at 13' 6" was the world's largest garden gnome when it was built in 2006 and now ranks third.
