Beaver Pond Campground: Harriman State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Located on the southeastern side of Lake Welch, Harriman’s Beaver Pond Campground is one of the closest campgrounds to Manhattan, and one of the largest public areas to pitch tents in the lower Hudson Valley. The 25 platform sites in A section (open from Memorial Day to Labor Day) are closer to the lake and tend to be quieter than those in the larger main camping area. Ground sites in W section benefit from less noise, too. Four out of the five comfort stations contain showers, and a single coin-operated washer and dryer can be found across from the dumping station and the ranger station. Neither pets nor alcohol are permitted at Beaver Pond. Several dozen rustic cabins with electricity as well as two full-service cottages are also available to rent on Lake Sebago. The yellow-blazed Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail, which runs across the entire park from north to south, passes close to the Beaver Pond Campground. Access it from the parking lot on Route 106 and test your stamina on a climb to the fire tower atop Jackie Jones Mountain."
