Directions to the Basha Kill

Take Rt. 17 to Exit 113. If you’re coming from the east, turn left (south) at the end of the exit onto Rt. 209 towards Port Jervis. (If you’re coming from the west, turn right onto Rt. 209 south). Proceed @ 1.9 miles. At that mileage point, look for a building on the left, Catskill Farms, 2458 St. Rt. 209. Immediately after the building, turn left onto Haven Road (you can only turn left). There are two parking lots along Haven Road. One is immediately accessible from the road just before the bridge; the other parking lot is at the end of a gravel driveway that comes up on your left after you have gone over the bridge.You can follow Haven Road until it intersects with South Road (.9 mile from Rt. 209 to South Road). At the Haven Road and South Road intersection, as you turn right, you’ll see the Mamakating Environmental Education Center at 762 South Road on that corner. Proceed right 1.8 miles to the major boat launch area for the Basha Kill. That site is directly across from the BashaKill Vineyards at 1131 South Road, Wurtsboro in case you want to use your GPS to get there.
