Getting to MAYfest


For those who wish to drive to MAYfest, parking is free.  Surprise Lake Camp is at the very end of Lake Surprise Road.  From Interstate 84, take exit 13 S (route 9 south) into Cold Spring NY.  Proceed on US route 9 south for 5.2 miles and then take a right turn on Fishkill Road, at the first traffic light in Cold Spring.  Proceed one quarter mile and take a right on Surprise Lake Road, just after the North Highlands Fire Department.  Surprise Lake Camp is at the very end of this road.  Please drive slowly in consideration of the people who live on this road.


Just a little more that a one hour train ride from Grand Central Station in Manhattan, on the scenic Hudson Line, this option is quick, easy and environmentally friendly.  Taxis are not readily available in the Village of Cold Spring and it is too far to walk to Surprise Lake Camp, but a cab can be schedule by calling the local company at 845 265 TAXI (8294).
