Mad River Club Inc.
PO Box 171
Pulaski NY 13142
The Mad River Club was founded over 125 years ago and incorporated in 1894. The original members were a group of businessmen from Rochester and Central New York seeking a quality place to hunt and fish on Tug Hill.
Today we have grown to offer more than 17,000 combined acres of private leased lands that are both posted and patrolled, with a membership that is both open and affordable to the general sporting community. These lands offer opportunities for members to participate in year round activities to include Hunting, Fishing, Camping, Hiking, and limited ATV/ Snowmobile riding. The primary lands are located on Tug Hill with additional smaller properties located in the towns of Lafayette, Taylor and Marathon, NY.
We also offer our own private Clubhouse located on the foothills of the Tug Hill, 5 miles east of Interstate 81. The clubhouse has a large fully equipped kitchen and banquet hall suitable for hosting up to 90 guests. We also have a covered pavilion, with another fully equipped kitchen, capable of hosting guests outside. Also located here is a fully functional rifle range and trap house.
Although today we offer more than our founding members had, our primary focus still remains true to their intent. To give our membership access to lands that offer opportunities to Hunt, Fish, and enjoy the great outdoors as sportsman. We are also actively committed to protect our environment and the heritage of hunting, fishing, and trapping through awareness and participation of the public and political processes and activities that could effect the opportunities to enjoy our sport today and into the future
With a current regular membership of 275, along with Life, Half dues, and honorary members we remain one of Tug Hills longest running clubs.
