Welcome to the
Maurice D. Hinchey
Catskill Interpretive Center

Your Gateway to the Catskills

Open daily 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Fridays 9:30 am to 6:30 pm

The Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center is a partnership between the Catskill Center and the
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, with generous financial support by the New York City Department of Environmental Conservation and Catskill Watershed Corporation and generous staff and volunteer support from Catskill Mountainkeeper, Catskill Mountain Club, Catskill 3500 Club, and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.

Visit us to learn about the natural, recreational, cultural, agricultural and historical resources of the Catskills.

For too long the Catskill State Park was one of the only major state or national parks in the country without an Interpretive Center. I was determined to change that. It’s critically important to have a place where residents and visitors can learn about our unique natural, historical, and cultural resources. It will help preserve our rich heritage, keep our local economies strong, and our quality of life intact.
