Goosepond Mountain State Park, also Goose Pond Mountain State Park,[1][2] is a 1,558-acre (631 ha) state park in Orange County, New York. The park is located within the Town of Chester and is administered by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission.[3] A small section is accessible to casual hikers via a boardwalk, and there are extensive trails for hikers and horseback riders. Part of the area is wetland used as a bird sanctuary.

The loyalist leader Claudius Smith is said to have used a rock shelter in the area as a hideout during the American Revolutionary War.[4]
