Posted on: May 3rd, 2017 by Brent Gotsch

Fishing with the family is a great way to connect with each other and experience the great outdoors!

Back by popular demand for a sixth year in a row, AWSMP in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is hosting “Family Fun & Fish Day” at Kenneth Wilson State Campground located at 859 Wittenberg Road, Mount Tremper, NY on Saturday, May 20 from 11:00am to 1:30pm.

All fishing supplies will be provided, though you are welcome to bring your own if you have them. No fishing license is required.

Register by May 18, 2017 in order to participate. Register online now by clicking here. For more information on the event contact Brent Gotsch at 845-688-3047 Ext. 3, or by email at bwg37@cornell.edu. DEC charges a $6 fee per car for admission to the campground — all other activities at Family Fun and Fish Day are free.

DEC fisheries staff and volunteers with local Trout Unlimited chapters will introduce youth and others to the sport of fishing and provide education on fish identification and aquatic ecology. Other family friendly activities include a barbeque, and arts and crafts under the pavilion starting at noon. Please let us know in advance if you have special needs related to the day’s activities.
