Campground Description

Description: Mongaup Pond Campground offers a 120-acre lake, the largest body of water in Catskills Park, outside of the New York City reservoirs. Surrounded by Forest Preserve land, the park offers hiking, snowmobiling. Large, wooded campsites, some on the lake, appeal to campers who enjoy a dense forest environment and seclusion. Swimming in the lake, relaxing in the picnic area, and renting boats are popular pastimes here. To insure fairness for all NY customers, any reservation with departure dates outside the 9-month Maximum Window can not be changed or cancelled until 18 days after the reservation was made. Length Of Stay: A camping permit can only be issued for a maximum of two weeks. From July 1 through Labor Day, only 14 cumulative days of camping can be obtained at any campground. This is to ensure that new campers can enjoy their right to camp. Reservations may not be honored if you have more than 14 days cumulative camping between July 1 and Labor Day at the campground. Handicapped Access Sites: Sites that are accessible to the disabled are for mobility impaired people only. At least one member of the camping party staying on the site must be mobility impaired (for example, in a wheelchair or uses a walker) or the camping party will be turned away at the campground.

    One of the best Catskill campgrounds. It can be called a lake as it is large enough to spend a few hours on. Many campsites are right on the shore. The Big Indian Wilderness is right next door. It is 9 lonely miles from any kind of store or cell phone coverage. Andt it is immaculate thanks to NYS. Highly recommend as a camp or a hiking point
