  Shakespeare on the Hudson, offering unique accommodations, is located at 216 Route 385, Catskill, NY 12414, Greene County in the upper-Hudson Valley.

From Shakespeare on the Hudson: "It is no accident that the greatest school of art that America ever produced had its birthplace at the crosshairs of Shakespeare on the Hudson. The founder of Shakespeare on the Hudson, Owen Lipstein, believes that place - the mystery of the land, the river, the running creek, the elevations, its assembled sublime totality - transmutes everything that happens there. And this spot, where Shakespeare on the Hudson sits, is infected with a magic as respected and private as Prospero's magic island. Our spot on the river is genuinely unique: one of the best places in America, and unquestionably the best spot on the Hudson. The spirit that lives here finds its way into every event, every wedding, every getaway that we host on the property." Shakespeare on the Hudson | Greene  website and more . . .

Scenic Hudson saved this riverfront parcel from development

From Scenic Hudson: "Located midway in the Hudson River's eight-mile course between Hudson and Coxsackie (hence its name), Four-Mile Point long was a hive of activity. For 6,000 years, it was the site of a Native American tool-making workshop; the long stone blades fashioned here were used to butcher fish and game. In the 19th century, a large icehouse stored frozen blocks cut from the river as much as 55,000 tons worth awaiting shipment to Manhattan during warmer months. While traces of this bustling past remain, the land now invites more tranquil pursuits. In fact for a small park, there's an awful lot to explore. An observation platform invites up-close inspection of a small wetland that furnishes critical habitat for birds and amphibians. Grand Hudson River views await those who reach a bluff-top overlook. And the walk is all downhill to the piece de resistance the river itself, where a fishing pole, a kayak or a picnic would come in handy, but none are necessary to savor the scenic splendor."

Fish Fisherman Anglers tips techniques secrets Bass Trout Walleye Crappie Catfish Salmon Steelhead | Greene All About Fishing

  "A A Fishing" is dedicated to those kindred spirits who have an inborn desire for fishing and seek knowledge about the science and sport of fishing. Since the beginning, mankind has sought fish as a food source. To most, catching fish was simply a means to an end. To some, the pursuit was the awakening of an instinct that drew them to the water in search of the thrill of the "tap - tap" that only a true fisherman really understands.

  "The Catskill Park is a mountainous region of public and private lands in Southeastern New York's Ulster, Greene, Delaware and Sullivan Counties. Evidence of the area's unique natural history can be seen in the impressive skyline formed by the ninety-eight peaks over 3,000 feet in elevation. Human activities such as logging, quarrying, tanning, trapping, and fishing have also shaped the Park's more recent history. Today, tourism and recreation play a prominent role in both supporting the region's economy and creating an awareness of the Catskills' ecological significance.

Click to enlarge photo of the Hudson Highlands The sign reads:
"For much of its 315-mile course, the Hudson River flows straight and broad. But at the Highlands, the Appalachian mountain chain intersects the river to create a fifteen mile stretch of rugged, mountainous landscape. This area contains the river's narrowest and deepest points, as well as its fastest currents. The Hudson River is an estuary, a mixture of salt and freshwater, and the saltwater line extends just north of Beacon. The River is tidal all the way up to the Troy Dam above Albany."

Long Path Trail 21 - 26: Hiking / Biking Central Catskills

  Long Path Trail 21 - 26: Hiking / Biking Central Catskills

"Once out of the southern parts of the Catskills, the Long Path enters the more well traveled and civilized regions. The trail joins the Devil's Path, one of the most strenuous hiking trails in New York, and passes near the former sites of two large hotels. Both hotels played a huge role in the development and then subsequent protection of the Catskills as an area "forever wild" to be spared from logging and other encroachments of civilization on nature. North Lake State Campground now occupies the land owned by both hotels in order to preserve the landmarks and vistas seen by the rich and famous when the Catskills were "the" place to go to for travel and vacation. The trail also passes a bounty of waterfalls, some directly on the trail and some nearby. Kaaterskill Falls, a short distance from North Lake State Campground, has two major drops, each a major waterfall in its own right, that add up to the tallest falls in New York State."
