Marked by the Tri-State Monument in Port Jervis NY by the confluence of the Delaware and Neversink Rivers.
Trip Report - April 24, 1994 - Jack Parsell
ACCESS ROUTE: From Interstate 84, exit #1, in Tristates, NY, proceed N on US 6 across the bridge over Neversink River. Just after the bridge, turn L on South Street, and L again into Laurel Grove Cemetery. Proceed on gravel and dirt roads to the parking area at the extreme W end of the peninsula, beyond the cemetery. A large NY - NJ boundary monument is on high ground, under the Interstate bridge. Tri State Rock is at the water's edge.
The inscription on the NJ side of the 1882 monument is as follows: "SOUTH 64° WEST 72 1/4 FEET FROM THIS IS THE TRl STATE ROCK WHICH IS THE NORTHWEST END OF THE NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY BOUNDARY, AND THE NORTH END OF THE NEW JERSEY AND PENNSYLVANIA BOUNDARY". On the NY side it says, "THE CORNER BETWEEN NEW YORK AND PENNSYLVANIA IS IN THE CENTER OF THE DELAWARE RIVER 475 FEET DUE WEST OF THE TRISTATE ROCK".

Note on Land vs Water - June 17, 2017 - Michael Schwartz and Mike Donner
This tri-point is wet, not dry. Check the boundaries on the aerial photos and current non-topo maps and see the tri-point clearly in the water. The tri-state rock near water's edge, which shows the supposed boundaries of the three states at their junction, is simply not at the tri-state point. Some years ago, during extreme low-water, I walked out to the tri-state point, using GPS, and it was quite a few feet from the tri-state rock.
