Deerpark is a town in the western part of Orange County, New York, and part of the New York metropolitan area. As of the 2010 Census, the population was at 7,901. The center of population of New York is located in Cuddebackville, a hamlet in Deerpark.[3] Cuddebackville and Deerpark most prominently serve as the headquarters of both the global Falun Gong religious movement and the Shen Yun performance arts troupe, based at the Dragon Springs compound.


Dutch colonists attempted to settle the area in the 17th century.[clarification needed] The town was organized in 1798 form the town of Mamakating after Port Jervis was set apart from the territory. The settlement was part of the boundary dispute between New York and New Jersey, which was not settled until 1773. The former Delaware and Hudson Canal ran through the town.


According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 67.9 square miles (176 km2), of which, 66.4 square miles (172 km2) of it is land and 1.5 square miles (3.9 km2) of it (2.14%) is water. It is considered the second largest town in area in Orange County.

The southwest town line is the border of Pennsylvania, marked by the Delaware River. The western and northern town lines are the border of Sullivan County, New York. The Neversink River flows through the town. The city of Port Jervis is located at the southern corner of the town, and a small portion of the town borders on Montague Township, New Jersey.

US Route 209 parallels the course of the Neversink River. The Hawk's Nest scenic overlook along New York State Route 97 offers views of the Delaware River. Interstate 84 passes through the southern portion of town near the New Jersey state line.
