Harriman State Park Campout – Sept 13-15, 2013

Harriman State Park, located in Rockland and Orange counties, is the second-largest NY Park in the parks system, with 31 lakes and reservoirs, 200 miles of hiking trails, miles of streams and scenic roads, and scores of wildlife species, vistas and vantage points. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the wonderful outdoor activities that Harriman State Park has to offer.  The scouts had such a fun time in the spring that we decided to visit lake Tiorati once again.  It is a close-by location, well-suited for those that have sporting events to come and go as their time suits.



The Cedar Pond Campground is located just 30 minutes away on beautiful Lake Tiorati which will provide for great outdoor activities including camping, boating, fishing, and hiking for the scouts.

On Friday September13th, we will leave OLPH at 6:15 pm, proceed to the campground, arriving around 7:00 and setup for the night. On Saturday the 8th we will have a full day to enjoy some canoeing, kayaking, fishing and exploring Lake Tiorati right from our campsite.  Sunday morning, the 15th  we will clean and pack up, leaving around 10am.

No fishing license required for those under 16. For those over 16 that plan on fishing, you are required to get a New York fishing license (5$ daily) at http://www.dec.ny.gov/63.html.

We are asking those that have canoes and PFD’s and would like to offer them to the troop for this outing to contact Paul Burns at paul_burns@mentorg.com.
