Ashland sits among the rolling green hills and open meadows of Greene County in the heart of the Catskills Mountains in southern New York. A most beautiful and exciting region, the Catskills offer a diverse abundance of recreational activities for visitors. Greene County is legendary for its trout fishing in streams where American fly-fishing was born. Charters are available to fish the nearby Hudson River and fishing in the pristine mountain lakes near Ashland yields northern pike, bass and lake trout. Several bass fishing tournaments are held near Ashland each year. Pleasure boating is another popular activity, with hiking, biking, horseback riding, canoeing and swimming being just a few of the other sports available in the area. There are ten distinctive golf courses near Ashland within a 14-mile radius that offer a variety of challenging courses amid breathtaking views of the mountains. Winter sports have also become popular in Greene County, and two of the largest downhill ski resorts in the Catskills are located near Ashland. Other places to visit include the Catskill Game Farm and the Zoom Flume Water Park. Ashland is centrally located, near the city of Albany and just an hour and a half to New York City.

Ashland Weather & Climate

The Catskills region has cold, snowy winters and warm summers, but without the stifling, oppressive heat and humidity of some coastal areas. Normally, the hottest week of the year in the Catskills is the third week of July. September offers mild days and cool nights and October is a kaleidoscope of color. "Jack Frost" will likely make his first appearance in October, and the first hard freeze is usually at the end of that month. November is unpredictable and with December comes colder temperatures and more moisture - either in the form of rain or snow. The full force of the winter season arrives in January and stays around until March in the Catskills. Average January temperatures are a good three to four degrees colder at elevations from one to two thousand feet and over seven degrees colder at over two thousand feet.
