Every Summer I look forward to taking the family to Belleayre Beach at Pine Hill Lake. It really has it all: ample parking, beautiful scenery, clean beach, and a family-friendly crowd. The only thing I would add would be a more extensive snack bar. I'm thankful they have one though. (After spending $4.35 for an ice cream sandwich at Southampton beach last weekend, I'm grateful to be back in the affordable Hudson Valley). Snacks for sale are limited to ice cream popsicles, chips, and cookies.
There is a nice playground near the parking lot where kids can unwind when they get water-logged. $8 for cars. $2 for walk-ins. Pedal boats, row boats, and kayaks are available for rent too. For more information visit the Belleayre website or call 845-254-5202.
