Catskill State Park, NY

330 RV rentals

Sometimes referred to as Catskill Park, the land that would eventually become Catskill State Park was obtained when Ulster County fell behind on its taxes in 1885 and exchanged the land with the state of New York in return for wiping the slate clean.

In the early 1890s, New York recognized the value in tourism and outdoor recreation, and over the subsequent decades, New York slowly added trails.
