Pine Hill (Ulster County)
Why we love it
Belleayre Mountain isn’t just a wintertime destination — it also offers great summer fun. Classic Catskills scenery surrounds its swimming area, which features a sandy beach, diving dock and lap lane. For a more expansive exploration of Pine Hill Lake, rent a kayak or pedal boat. Out of the water, you can test your mettle on the nearby climbing wall or grab some horseshoes, badminton rackets, volleyballs and other sporting equipment available to use for free. With all this, you don’t have to worry about the kids (or adults) complaining that they have nothing to do.
