There was another swimming hole on RT23A west of Palenville (Kaaterskill Clove). There was a large pull nearby. For a couple years I was climbing the waterfall ravines in the clove. I visited this swimming hole when no one ever visited. Then all of a sudden it got very popular with the pulloff and roadsides where possible filled with cars. Eventually the lot got closed off with Jersey Barriers. I'd heard for the same reason it being trashed. Things got out of control.

Another spot is Fawn's Leap a little farther on. Not sure the status there other than RT23A through the Clove is pretty well posted with No Parking signs. Also the road is pretty narrow and there are not many places wide enough to pull off onto anyway.

It's not DECs responsibility to teach people to respect things. By the time it falls into their lap it's way too late. This needs to learned from an early age and demonstrated by example by parents.
