Pollepel Island, Fishkill Reviews

  • One of the most interesting ruins on this part of the Hudson. While it never was a historic site, it was a great looking castle built by an industrious man with a vision. It is too bad it was allowed to deteriorate, as it would have made a terrific tourist site had it been able to be developed. I always admire it while cruising by and wish we could visit when it was a stable building.

  • A great history lesson given by staff members , shame it was damaged and no thoughts on a Restorations to the property

  • Cool historic site in need of continued support from the public. See it and help to refurbish the great state of NY

  • The island is small but full of history! The tour guides tell a great story about the island's history. Tip: Don't bring any food or drink here since you're not allowed to walk and eat/drink while on the island.

  • My wife, my daughter and I took the boat ride and tour out of the Beacon waterfront. The island is beautiful and the history fascinating,and great photo ops. Staff at the dock, on the boat and on the island were all great - very friendly and knowledgeable. Ken (our island guide) shared personal photos and stories they had about the site.
