NYSDEC Announces Final Management Plan for Mongaup Pond Campground
The NYSDEC has asked that I circulate to members of the Catskill Park Advisory Committee that the Mongaup Pond Campground Unit Management Plan has been finalized. The following is from their announcement:


Plan Outlines Accessible Enhancements and Horseback Riding Facilities

The Mongaup Pond Campground management plan that will guide improvements at the campground for the next 10 years is now finalized, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Acting Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today.

Under the Unit Management Plan (UMP), the Mongaup Pond Campground, located in Livingston Manor, Sullivan County, will undergo upgrades to make it more accessible and allow horseback riding.

“The final plan for Mongaup Pond Campground will guide DEC’s efforts to modernize the facilities at the site and offer many enhancements benefiting visitors’ access and recreational experience,” said Acting Commissioner Seggos. “The proposed actions in the plan increase the efficiency of the campground management that is in harmony with the character of the Catskill Major enhancements planned over several years, include:
provisions to allow campers with horses and horseback riding in certain areas of the campground;
a new lakeside picnic area; and
new comfort stations.
Mongaup already provides eight accessible camping sites and an accessible trail and observation deck. The UMP proposes to further enhance accessible recreation opportunities
a new universally accessible pavilion;
six new accessible lean-tos; and
a new accessible walkway and trail.
The full list of proposed projects and management details can be seen in the Final Mongaup Pond Campground UMP (PDF) available at on DEC’s website.
All my best,
Jeff Senterman
Chair, Catskill Park Advisory Committee
