Park Information

In 1964, the Commission purchased more than 50 parcels - a total of 800 acres - in the Town of Wallkill, in Orange County, NY. These purchases marked the beginning of Highland Lakes State Park, a pristine preserve near the busy corner created by Interstate 84 and State Route 17. Over the following years, Highland Lakes has nearly quadrupled in size, creating a buffer for the Shawangunk ridge. Highland Lakes is comprised of 3,115 acres.
