Enjoy the beautiful trails and relax with a picnic beside the pond.

Explore the trails at Camp Saratoga which operated as a boy scout camp from 1930 to 2001 when it became part of the Wilton Wildlife Preserve & Park. Approximately 25 acres of the 310-acre camp is owned by the Town of Wilton. New York State owns the remaining 285 acres.

The property encompasses a diversity of ecosystems including woodlands, wetlands, open areas, streams, and a pond.

Once you walk the numerous well marked trails enjoy a picnic at Delegan Pond where you may spot a great blue heron, belted kingfisher, or the occasional beaver.

If you enjoy Geocaching there are plenty of caches hidden among the park.
