Since 1962, camping addicts have been seeking seclusion at this 175-acre state park in the Taconic Valley. The campsites are set up around Black River Pond where bass, pickerel, and bullheads are in abundance. You can kayak or canoe on the pond and even swim in it at specified times.

Why You’ll Love Cherry Plain State Park

A beach is in front of the pond’s swimming area at Cherry Plain’s campground; you can sunbathe on the sand or admire the water and surrounding forest from a park bench. If you’re an equestrian, you’ll like the nearby bridle paths. The hiking trails that wind through the hills are used in the wintertime as cross-country ski trails.
