North-South Lake

Summer season offers swimming from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Hiking, camping, fishing and non-motorized boating. Canoe, kayak, paddle boat,  and rowboat rentals are available. The park features marked hiking trails, pavilions, bath houses and playground.

Day Use Facilities 

Swimming is permitted at both North and South Lake beaches from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day when lifeguards are on duty.

Two picnic areas: one on North Lake with two picnic pavilion rentals a 20' X 32' and a 44" X 24' (the larger of the two with electricity) and one on South Lake with a 40' X 60' picnic pavilion rental.

* Please take note that at facilities that offer swimming beaches, there are days which lifeguards are unavailable. For the safety of our customers, these beaches will not be open and swimming will be prohibited.


No motorized boats are permitted. Rowboats and canoes permitted. A paved boat ramp is located at the North Lake day-use area. Rowboat, kayak, canoe and paddle boat rentals are available at the campground.


North-South Lake is also a fantastic fishing spot. Fish in area include: chain pickerel, brown bullhead, pumpkinseed, black crappie, and largemouth bass.


The campground offers access to numerous hiking trails. The short hike to the site of the Catskill Mountain House provides the reward of incredible vistas. Longer and more strenuous hikes can bring you to such spots as Artist's Rock, Sunset Rock, Newman's Ledge, Boulder Rock, and the Kaaterskill Hotel and Laurel House sites. Kaaterskill Falls lies outside the campground and is reached by a trail beginning on Route 23A. The two tiered falls of 175 and 85 feet is the highest in New York State. The trails also offer spectacular cross country skiing and snowshoeing throughout the winter months.
