Cragsmoor is a hamlet (and census-designated place) in Ulster County, New York, United States. The population was 474 at the 2000 census.

Cragsmoor is located atop the Shawangunk Ridge, in the south part of the Town of Wawarsing. Sam's Point Preserve is near Cragsmoor.



Cragsmoor is located at 41°40′6″N 74°23′17″W / 41.66833°N 74.38806°W / 41.66833; -74.38806 (41.668298, -74.387962)[1].

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 4.4 square miles (11.3 km²), all land.

The center of town is about 1,800 feet (548.6 m) above sea level, much higher than neighboring communities such as Ellenville and Walker Valley.

As a whole, the hamlet has a wooded, rustic ambience. Most homes are rather modest and old, but sit on large lots with many tall shade trees. There are also many large undeveloped woodlots, and thus property values in Cragsmoor are higher than in the rest of Wawarsing. Other than the post office, there is no business district to speak of.

In 1996 the 3,620 acres (14.5 km²) comprising much of the hamlet's center were added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Cragsmoor Historic District, due to buildings designed by Bert Goldsmith and Frederick S. Dellenbaugh.

The Long Path hiking trail passes through the center of town on its way to Sam's Point.


As of the census[2] of 2000, there were 474 people, 189 households, and 137 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 108.5 per square mile (41.9/km²). There were 257 housing units at an average density of 58.8/sq mi (22.7/km²). The racial makeup of the CDP was 94.09% White, 0.84% Native American, 1.48% from other races, and 3.59% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.85% of the population.
