Formerly the estate and far of Mrs. Fredrick P. Wilcox, whose 18th century complex of farm building still stand today, this park is now a family- and group-friendly attraction.

The park features two small lakes for fishing, paddle boating and swimming -- even a sand beach. Four covered pavilions may be rented for groups. There is a family campground with 27 sites (reservations required (845) 758-6100) plus miniature golf, DISC golf (free), along with a rustic site reserved for organized scout groups.

Wilcox Park Trail System
I want to commend those who care for the hiking trail system at Wilcox Park in Dutchess County. This park has one of the most scenic and well-kept trail systems in the area. Trails are well marked, cleaned of downed trees and well designed. Each week, I hike the entire red and orange trails (four miles or more) and continue to find much to delight. In addition, it's a fine way to keep in shape. I would just offer one recommendations: please display the trail system at the front gate (near route 199). The map is displayed in two other areas in the park (of which I am aware), but to further introduce the system to more hikers, the map at gate entry would be helpful. Please send my thanks to those responsible for keeping this gem of a park in such fine condition. Wayne Yaddow [email protected] Rhinebeck, NY
