Travel directions: 
Wawayanda State Park maintenance shopparking lot. From the south/east. Take Route 23 north to Union Valley Road. Follow Union Valley Road about 6 miles to a stop sign. Continue through the stop sign, and proceed, still on Union Valley Road, to the second traffic light. Turn left at the light, (I think it’s still Union Valley Road, but not well indicated as such) and continue approximately 2 miles to a fork in road. Take the left fork; in about 1/2 mile the road makes a T intersection with Warwick Turnpike. Turn left onto Warwick Turnpike. The park entrance is four miles ahead on the left, and is well marked. Drive up the park driveway, to the visitor center/park headquarters building. You will see the maintenance buildings on the right beyond the park headquarters. Drive past the visitor center and immediately turn right into the parking lot for the maintenance facility.  From the west/north: Take Rt. 94 to Warwick Turnpike (north of Vernon NJ and south of Warwick NY--sorry, we haven't measured the mileage )--it's a right turn if you're traveling north from Vernon; there's a sign at the turn for Greenwood Lake, but nothing indicating that it is Warwick Turnpike. Continue on Warwick Turnpike until you see the park entrance on your right. Drive up the park driveway, to the visitor center/park headquarters building. You will see the maintenance buildings on the right beyond the park headquarters. Drive past the visitor center and immediately turn right into the parking lot for the maintenance facility.
