Crystal Lake Wild Forest - Unit Management Plan

The Crystal Lake Wild Forest is a detached parcel of the Forest Preserve, outside the Blue Line of the Catskill Park. The parcel is 497 acres in size and falls within the Town of Fremont in Sullivan County.

Due to the popularity of the area with the public, the status of Crystal Lake as a public fishery, and overuse of portions of the area, the Department completed an updated Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Crystal Lake Wild Forest in 1993. If you have questions regarding the UMP, please contact us at r3.ump@dec.ny.gov.
