About Us:

Located in the scenic Schoharie Valley, Mine Kill State Park overlooks the NY Power Authority's Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project. Providing good fishing opportunities, the lower reservoir is stocked with trout and walleye, and has several other species, including bass and is ideal for motor boating, kayaking and water skiing.

Minekill State Park has an Olympic size pool, wading pool and a diving pool available at no cost to campers with a valid camping permit. Swim lessons are taught in the summer months--please contact the park office for details. Other warm weather activities include hiking and mountain biking on the parks 8 miles of trails. The park also hosts sessions of the Headwaters Soccer Camp in its regulation sized athletic fields. League play is also welcome.

Cascading 80 feet through a narrow gorge is the picturesque Mine Kill Falls for which the park is named. A separate parking area, 1/4 miles south of the parks' main entrance, provides access to the overlook viewing platforms, as well as the Long Path hiking trail to the lower falls and beyond. In winter, visitors enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Went today (4th of July) and had a family bbq under big shady trees. Then swam and had a lovely day. Even though it was very busy, there were plenty of grills and picnic tables available for our large family. The pool has many lifeguards keeping an eye on things, very adequate staff and friendly people.

Beautiful park! There are 'no swimming's signs posted all over the area. Not sure how enforced this is, but it would be a perfect place to take a dip. They have BBQ stations as well if you're looking to picnic.
