The Peekamoose Blue Hole is in Sundown Wild Forest, located within the Catskill Forest Preserve's secluded wilderness. The Blue Hole is a depression in the Rondout Creek's streamed rock, a unique natural feature formed in an ancient whirlpool by sand and swirling gravel. The stream is part of the watershed of drinking water in New York City. The wildlife experience has been affected by the presence of large crowds on summer weekends over the past couple of years.
