Activities include: Bird watching, tent camping, lean-to camping, hiking, fishing, snow shoeing, X-country skiing, horse back riding, and picnicking. The park is open to NY residents and non residents a like. They do charge a parking fee. Parking is in several lots and road side parking areas.
I was able to test out some of my camping gear. I picked up a new sleeping pad and tent. The pad is from Alps Mountaineering. It is self inflating and it ROCKS! To inflate simply open the valve. After a few minutes close the valve and you are set. It was like sleeping on my bed. The Tent is a Big Agnes Fair View 3 tent. I picked this up on a big Clarence sale because it was discontinued. I must say the tent was well vented and had plenty of room. I think the tent can stand up to some weather and keep you and your gear dry inside.
Being that this park and campground is located on the doorstep of the Croton Watershed area i will defenitly be back in the spring for a camp and fish.
