Turkey Point is a 139-acre state forest in the Town of Saugerties in Ulster County, fronting on the Hudson River. Immediately to the south of Turkey Point is the county's Ulster Landing Park. The hills and terraces contain a small forested swamp, an open swamp, a few brushy fields, and a small conifer plantation, adding diversity to this relatively undeveloped property. It is historically significant as an anchorage for Henry Hudson. The remains of the ice house operated by the Knickerbocker Ice Company can be found along the river bank. A 200-foot-deep concrete dock provides fishing for species such as striped bass, not normally caught from shore.
