Welcome to the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center

Your Gateway to the Catskills

The Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center is a partnership between the Catskill Center and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Visit the MDH CIC to learn more about the natural, recreational, cultural, agricultural and historical resources of the Catskills. Plan your visit to the Catskills with us today!

We are open seven days a week from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.

For too long the Catskill State Park was one of the only major state or national parks in the country without an Interpretive Center. I was determined to change that. It’s critically important to have a place where residents and visitors can learn about our unique natural, historical, and cultural resources. It will help preserve our rich heritage, keep our local economies strong, and our quality of life intact.
— Hon. Maurice D. Hinchey
