Located in the scenic Schoharie Valley, Mine Kill State Park overlooks the NY Power Authority's Blenheim-Gilboa Reservoir as part of the Pumped Storage Power Project. Summertime visitors frequently enjoy the park’s outdoor pool complex which includes an Olympic size pool, wading pool and a diving pool. Other warm weather activities include fishing, boating, hiking, disc golf, hosting a picnic in one of the park’s various pavilions, and playing on the park playgrounds and athletic fields. Hikers at the park can view rushing water, cascading 80 feet through a narrow gorge down the picturesque Mine Kill Falls for which the park is named. In winter, visitors enjoy sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Visitors may also choose to camp at one of 30 quiet, wooded tent and trailer sites at Max V. Shaul State Park, just 9 miles north.
