Scenic Boating on Historic Rivers

The dazzling shine of sunlight on North-South Lake, the muffled engine of a motorboat on the Hudson River, the silent glide of a paddle dipping into Dolan’s Lake – you’re invited to float away in the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County!

From the legendary Hudson River, to the quiet creeks and expansive lakes of the mountaintops, Greene County is home to some of New York State's oldest recreational waterways.

Try stand-up paddle boarding in the River Towns in Athens on the Hudson; go kayaking in the mountains on North-South Lake, or tubing in the Valley Towns in East Durham at the Zoom Flume Water Park. For motorized boats, the Hudson River and Catskill Creek meander along the River Towns, offering scenic exploration and easy access to shops, restaurants, marinas and fishing.  Download our handy Waterfront Guide today!

Spend your summer by the pool or romp the day away at the Catskills #1 waterpark, and dive into adventure in Greene County!
