There will be no vehicle access to the Lake Minnewaska parking areas, or the Awosting parking area, due to paving at the park entrances on Tuesday, October 4. The Peter's Kill and Sam’s Point parking areas will remain open, but please note that these parking areas accommodate only 100 and 75 cars, respectively. Please plan accordingly, or schedule your visit to Minnewaska State Park Preserve for another date.
Paving will be weather dependent, so please check our website or call the park office at (845) 255-0752 for up to date information. If paving is delayed due to rain, it will take place during the earliest period of good weather, following the rain.
