Park Information

Storm King State Park made the headlines in the 1960s and 1970s when it found itself at the center of a legal battle over a power plant that Consolidated Edison wanted to build at the base of Storm King Mountain on the Hudson River. But the park's history is much older; to be precise, it started in 1922, when an 800-acre gift allowed PIPC to begin protecting the scenic value of that Hudson River gorge.

Thanks to subsequent gifts – including several hundred acres donated by Consolidated Edison as part of a 1980 settlement. Today, Storm King is an 1,884-acre park prized by hikers for its pristine beauty.
