MINE KILL STATE PARK ROAD
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.
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.
Mine Kill State Park has an Olympic size pool, wading pool and a diving pool available at no cost to anyone. Swim lessons are taught in the summer months-please contact the park office for details.
The boat launch on the Blenheim-Gilboa Reservoir is open daily, April 1 to October 15. Boaters are required to clean their boat using the park's hot water boat wash station before launching any vessel on the reservoir and sign in at the park office or boat wash station.
