Explore Getaway Western Catskills

Located in Roscoe, NY, Getaway Western Catskills sits only five minutes from Pepacton Reservoir, right between the Cherry Ridge Wild Forest and the Delaware Wild Forest. While there’s plenty of exploring to be done around our new Outpost, here are a few of the spots we’d recommend you check out while you’re on your Getaway.

Note that the Pepacton Reservoir is open for recreational use between Memorial Day and Columbus Day, and anyone interested in fishing and boating will need to get the proper permits, and swimming in the reservoir is not allowed.
