Catskill is a small town located on the banks of the Hudson River in Greene County, approximately 35 miles south of Albany. It's easily reached via Highway 9 just off Interstate 87 in the southern part of the state. The town of Catskill offers many recreational opportunities, and affords a number of very scenic drives along nearby Highway 23, such as the East Windham Mountains and Highway 23B over Hunter Mountain. Catskill is also just a short drive to Bristol Beach State Park, North Lake and the site of legendary Rip Van Winkle's long nap. Recreational activities in the area include hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, golf, antiquing, cross country skiing and downhill skiing at Hunter Mountain. The town of Catskill is also home to the Catskill Game Farm, a zoological park with exotic animals and a petting zoo. The park also includes miniature golf, kids' amusement rides, splash pad (water activity,) picnic areas, animal shows and food vendors. In the fall, Catskill holds the Mountain Ginseng and Herbal Remedy Festival, a one-day festival highlighting the history and folklore of Catskill Ginseng and other herbal remedies. Vendors with arts and crafts and food, as well as educational programs, are available at the festival.

Catskill Weather & Climate

The Catskills climate has variations depending on the elevation. There is a totally different winter in the mountains and the higher plateaus over 1,000 feet. There, the grip of winter is strong and steady, and above freezing temperatures are less common. Average January temperatures are three to four degrees colder at elevations from one to two thousand feet and over seven degrees colder at elevations above two thousand feet. Snowfall is fairly uniform during the month of January in the Catskills. The third week of July is generally the hottest time of the year in the Catskills, and rainfall during the warm months is usually confined to a few days rather than spread throughout the month. September has warm days, cool nights and fog at dawn over the Hudson valley. By October the hills are a kaleidoscope of color, and the first hard freeze is usually at the end of October.
