Dobbins Memorial State Forest

The 1,100-acre Dobbins State Forest is most popular for its hunting, snowmobiling and picnicking opportunities. There are no hiking trails but hiking is allowed throughout the property. Harry Dobbins was a forester responsible for the purchase of many of the New York State Forests, and this state forest was named after him in remembrance.

The Dobbins Memorial Day Use Area has a parking lot and a picnic table. It is nestled within a Norway spruce plantation that was planted by the CCC in the 1950s. Some use this as a base camp during hunting season with a camping permit. The day use area is located near the junction between Bedient Hill Road and Schuppenhauer Road. Unfortunately, the day use area has been repeatedly vandalized and the high cost of continually cleaning it up prevents proper maintenance.

There are three designated camp sites on this state forest: two are located at the day use area and one is located on Kahler Hill Road. These are primitive tent sites and are near the road. At-large primitive camping is also allowed throughout the property. Campsites must be at least 150 feet away from the nearest road, trail, or body of water.
