Hunt’s Pond State Forest
Hunts Pond State Park Rd
New Berlin, NY 13411
State Park: Birding, Camp, Fish, Hike, Picnic, RV, Snow Sports, Walk, Water Sports
The former state park will be administered as state forest land, although many of the traditional recreational uses allowed at the former park will continue as part of the state forest system. Fishing and hunting with a proper license is allowed at Hunts Pond; launching of non-gasoline powered car top boats continues and the public may enjoy birding and nature observation throughout the property. Because the property is now a state forest and not a state park, there is no fee to use the property, or to launch a boat. Camping will not be permitted on the former state park, a policy which was implemented by OPRHP in the recent past and which will continue in the near future. Hunts Pond is a “carry-in/carry-out” facility, meaning whatever you bring into the site, you must take out with you, including garbage and refuse. There are no restrooms at the site.
