The Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center is a partnership of the Friends of the Catskill Interpretive Center, the NY State DEC and the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development.

Visit the MDHCIC to learn more about the natural and cultural resources of the Catskills.

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.
