Sorry, Follensby is still the private property of the Nature Conservancy and is not (yet) open to the public. NY missed a chance a couple of years ago to purchase. Since then, the Finch Pruyn tract has taken all the press. Visiting the site of the Philosopher's Camp and fishing from there will have to wait a while.

From the Nature Conservancy web page:
"While The Nature Conservancy forges ahead with its protection plan for Follensby Pond, the property is not open to the public. We look forward to the day when college professors can hold sessions in an outdoor classroom so rich in meaning and history, and families can enjoyed these hallowed grounds. Until then, unauthorized access is considered trespass."
"Now I see the secret of making the best person, it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth." -Walt Whitman
