Max V. Shaul State Park

Route 30

Max V. Shaul State Park is a small, quiet camping area with 30 wooded tent and trailer sites. The park has shady picnic grounds, as well as playing fields and a playground. There is a nature and hiking trail, fishing is allowed in Panther Creek and winter visitors can cross-country ski. Also, a car top boat/fishing access trail to the Schoharie Creek was established in 2011.

While there, also visit Mine Kill State Park, just 9 miles south, to enjoy the beautiful Blenheim-Gilboa Reservoir, Mine Kill Falls, and miles of trails. Minekill State Park has an Olympic size pool, wading pool and a diving pool available at no cost (courtesy of the New York Power Authority).
