Putnam-Valley is a historic community nestled in the Hudson Highlands, which is less than an hour from midtown Manhattan. However, it seems much further away than that from the hectic New York City lifestyle. With a population of approximately 10,000 residents, the Putnam Valley area includes several picturesque lakeside communities, miles and miles of hiking and riding trails and the Clarence Fahnestock State Park. The town of Putnam Valley is nicknamed the "Town of Lakes," and the area was named as one of Reserve America's "Top Outdoor Locations" in 2005. Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park is a 14,086-acre park that is situated in both Putnam and Dutchess counties. It boasts a beautiful swimming beach, picnic areas, miles of hiking trails, opportunities for boating, and fishing, hunting and birding. The park is also home to the Taconic Outdoor Education Center which provides high quality environmental programming and Fahnestock Winter Park which includes 15 kilometers of groomed trails for cross country skiing and snowshoeing and an area for sledding. The beach at Canopus Lake has a sandy shore and nearby picnic area, along with swimming, fishing, camping and rowboats available for rent. Fishing is also available at Stillwater Lake and four other ponds in the area. Boating permits are available at the Park Office. The campground is situated along the park's natural rock ridges, which provides privacy and a peaceful spot for campers to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Each of the 80 campsites has a fire ring and picnic table, and there is an additional area for RV camping.
