NY State Parks has begun offering a longer-term camping option at Max V Shaul State Park in Schoharie County.
In the 179 NY State Park system, this is only the third Park that offers this opportunity. This is the first park in the Saratoga / Capital / Hudson Valley and Taconic regions that this is being offered.
For campers interested in spending several weeks – or more – at a time, a number of campsites are being made available for this special option. This will save campers time and reservation fees because they only need to make a single reservation for their extended stays. (Typically at most state park campgrounds, campers are limited to a maximum of 14 continuous nights.)
Seasonal camping reservations must be made with the park directly at 518.827.4711.
The only other state park locations in the state that offer longer term camping are in our Central Region – Bowman Lake and Oquaga Lake.
If you are unfamiliar – Max V. Shaul is a quiet setting with wooded sites. Highlights at the park include fishing in the Schoharie Creek, hiking the park’s nature trails, enjoying shady picnic grounds, open playing fields and a playground. Additionally, campers have free vehicle access to nearby Mine Kill State Park which offers an Olympic size swimming pool, multi-use trails, boating by permit and views of the scenic 80-foot Mine Kill Falls.
