    Typical State Park Camping

    While state park camping is usually less expensive than at private campgrounds, you often get less amenities. This location is no different. Fire rings, wooden tables etc. Seems a little tired looking but great place with water and plenty of woods and hiking.


    The Grounds of the park were very nice, and the hiking trails were really good and easy to follow. One even overlooks the Hudson River. They also start right at campground which was convenient. Hot showers were fine.Most of the campsites are small and close to your neighbors without much privacy. Mine was ok, but guy next to me decided to chop wood for 20 minutes at 11:15 pm which woke me up . There is no pool or beach or convenience store at campground either. Its Not real far from city but Route 9 going south to 84 on way home was full of traffic and traffic lights and not a pleasant drive. I’d go another way next time.

    With more than 2,000 miles of marked trails across New York, the State Parks have something for hikers of every ability. That includes the beautiful Taconic Region, located on the east side of the Hudson River and stretching through Columbia, Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester counties.

    Palatial estates, highland trails, Hudson River vistas and woodland campgrounds define some of the exceptional treasures to be found in a region with 14 parks and eight historic sites.

    If you are new to hiking or have not yet explored hikes in this region, named for the Taconic Mountain range that runs north-to-south along the state border with Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont, here are some suggestions to start you out.

    As with all hikes, there are few things to remember beyond carrying a mobile phone. Wear sturdy yet comfortable shoes or boots, bring water and snacks, and perhaps carry a camera, to capture what you see. Be mindful of hikes on steep terrain or that go near cliff tops. Having a small first-aid kit available in case of emergency is never a bad idea.

    Hiking poles are useful, and can transfer some of the stress of hiking from your knees and legs to your arms and back. And use a trail map, which is available online at each park website at and at the main office at each park. Check the parks individual website to see if its maps can be downloaded to your iOS Apple or Android device.
