Devil's Tombstone Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A small site squeezed in a narrow mountain pass between Stony Clove Creek and an abandoned railroad, Devil’s Tombstone is one of the state’s oldest campgrounds. It takes its name from a large boulder that a landslide or glacier dislodged from atop Plateau Mountain or Hunter Mountain centuries ago. Don’t expect many amenities here, just small, shady, well-maintained lots, potable water, and an ideal base for exploring the surrounding Indian Head and Hunter–West Kill Mountain Wilderness areas. The turquoise-blazed Long Path is also just a 3-mile hike up Plateau Mountain from Devil’s Tombstone. Tiny Notch Lake down the road is only for admiring from its picnic area, but swimming, boating, and hot showers are available 8 miles away at North/South Lake Campground. Hunting (with a permit) is also permitted in the Catskills outside campground boundaries."
