Monticello, NY – Summer is just about here, and Sullivan County has 2019 Lake Superior State Park Season Passes ready for sale!
“Sullivan County residents and property owners can visit the Parks, Recreation and Beautification Office at the Government Center in Monticello to get their passes,” said District 4 Legislator Catherine Owens, chair of the Legislature’s Parks, Agriculture & Sustainability Policy Committee. “Each pass is $15 per person, which provides you free entry into the park for the season. If you’re a first-time applicant, you need to bring proof of residency or property ownership to the Office (second floor of the Government Center) Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.”
Holders of 2018 season passes do not have to provide proof of residency and can simply apply by mail (or in person). The application form is available at the Office or on the Parks page at www.sullivanny.us/sites/default/files/departments/Parks/LSSPResidentSeasonPassRenewalForm2018.pdf.
Season passes will also be available for purchase at Lake Superior during operating hours. The beach will open to the public on Saturday, May 25, 2019 and continue to operate every weekend through the end of June, when it will commence daily operations through Labor Day. Hours are 9 a.m.-7 p.m., subject to weather conditions.
Daily admission to enter the park is $5 per person. Children under 3 years old and veterans who present a valid ID issued through the Sullivan County Return the F.A.V.O.R. program can enter for free. Lake Superior also participates in the Golden Park Program, which grants New York State senior citizens free admission to the park on weekdays only (but not weekends or holidays).
Boat rentals, vending machines, the playground, and the bathhouse will all be in operation during regular beach hours. Several picnic pavilions are available for rent; please contact the Parks, Recreation & Beautification office at 845-807-0287 for more information.
Lake Superior State Park is operated and maintained by the Sullivan County Parks, Recreation and Beautification Department and the Sullivan County Division of Public Works through a license agreement with the Palisades Interstate Park Commission.
