Take the Virtual Tour! - LITTLE POND CAMPGROUND

Nestled in a remote area of the Catskills, quiet, picturesque Little Pond Campground shows off the pristine beauty of the mountains. The Beaverkill, a world-renowned fly-fishing stream, is within minutes of the campground. Nature lovers will enjoy the leisurely hiking trail around a 13-acre pond and the opportunity to venture along trails leading to the ruins of an old farm or enjoy breathtaking views atop the Touchmenot Mountains. Most campsites are heavily wooded, with walk-in and boat-in remote sites available for those who prefer more primitive camping.


Little Pond Campground is located in the Catskills Forest Preserve.


Excellent hiking opportunities are available, from within the campground or from nearby trailheads. Non-motorized boats are welcome, and anglers may fish for panfish. A Junior Naturalist program is available for children.


Campsites have tables and fireplaces, with water, restrooms with showers, a trailer dump station, and a recycling center. A beach with a lifeguard and a picnic area with tables, grills, fireplaces, and shelters are within walking distance of the campground. The park also offers volleyball and basketball courts, a soccer field, ice and firewood sales, a boat launch, and rowboat, paddle boat, kayak, and canoe rentals. Most park facilities are handicapped-accessible.

Nearby Attractions:

Area attractions are numerous. The Catskill Fish Hatchery is about 20 miles from the campground. DeBruce Environmental Education Camp, shopping centers, restaurants, theaters, and bowling alleys are within 20 miles, in Liberty, Livingston Manor, and Margaretville. There are also a number of golf courses and horseback riding facilities nearby.
