No-Fee Permit Now Required for Peekamoose Blue Hole on Weekends and Holidays

Permit-Only Access / Starting this Weekend
In an effort to limit the overall use during peak visitation and to help protect the pristine quality of the Peekamoose Blue Hole, beginning June 30th, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will require that all weekends and holidays visitors of the Blue Hole book a permit. 

Permits may be acquired online at ReserveAmerica.com, at a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Permits  will be available at no cost to the visitor, and each will allow access for up to 6 people. The goal of this permitting process is to limit the overall use during peak visitation to help protect the pristine quality of the Blue Hole.
