  • Great place to camp, swim and relax on the beach. You have much that you can do and there is something for everyone. 
  • Beautiful many acre state park. Hiking trails, snow showing, cross country skiing. There are several ponds. You can rent canoes. 
  • Great place to go to find peace and quiet from nyc. Highly recommend to go! Ticket to enter the park is around $7
  • This park is chock full of lovely hikes and beautiful scenery- both for the novice and for the pro. Pelton Pond is an easy loop near the park office, with BBQ site and picnic tables close to the entrance. The parks website has a nice virtual tour of Canopus Lake, the "jewel of Fahnestock", so you can "know before you go". Also, Taconic Outdoor Education Center, located within the park offers programs and lodging throughout the year. I have also added photos of the maps provided to visitors at the park office, highlighting camping and hiking options.
  • Lovely walk around here. So much to do, and so many awesome sights to see! We hammocked in the woods too and loved it!
  • Originally our destination was FDR pool w/family. DUE TO IT BEING CLOSED FOR SERVICE 😠We were directed to this park or bear mountain (happy camper we are)!! SO GLAD WE CAME HERE FIRST TIME IT'S QUIET CLEAN AND WE HAVE PICNIC TABLES N GRILLS BY THE BEACH.. This will definitely be the new spot love it!!
  • Its a really nice place, great beach, ample parking..
