About: The largest campground in the Catskill Forest Preserve, this site has two things going for it: beauty and history. A short walk from the lake takes you to the spot where the renowned Catskill Mountain House once stood; they say you can see five states from this promontory. The famous Kaaterskill Falls, a favorite subject of the Hudson River School painters, is also nearby. And Alligator Rock -- a pair of boulders positioned in such a way that they resemble a giant jaw lined with pointy teeth -- has been attracting campers for over 100 years.
