Balsam Lake Mountain Wild Forest - Unit Management Plan

The Balsam Lake Mountain Wild forest is made up of 13,500 acres of state land in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. Geographic features of interest in the unit include the area's namesake, Balsam Lake Mountain, as well a Alder Lake, Kelly Hollow, and the Beaver Kill area.

The Department completed a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Balsam Lake Mountain Wild Forest in 1996. If you have any questions about the UMP, please email Region 3 UMP.
