Fair Haven Beach State Park is located in upstate New York on the eastern portion of the Lake Ontario shoreline. Fairhaven Camping has one of the finest public lakefronts in upstate New York, with towering shoreline bluffs, sandy beaches and adjoining hilly woodlands. The park features 1500 feet of beautiful sand beach including 600 feet of guarded swim area. Inland, Sterling Pond and Creek are centrally located amongst the geological transition between woods and water.
Campgrounds and cabin areas are nestled within the gently rolling woodlands. Fishing and boating opportunities are plentiful in Lake Ontario and the adjoining Little Sodus Bay. Visitors here also enjoy swimming and diving boards, biking, hiking, picnicking, and camping. Winter snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and ice fishing are very popular. Park facilities include two sandy beaches separated by a diving channel with two boards. Boat rentals include row boats, paddle boats, canoes and kayaks which are only for use on the inland Sterling Pond waterway.
Three separate campgrounds and a 30 unit cabin colony each contain a centralized restroom with showers. Two additional cabins and three cottages make up the self contained units available for reservation. Campgrounds consist of 46 electric sites and 138 non-electric sites. A ball field, hiking trail, camp store, concession, 5 picnic areas, 1 family picnic tent rentals and 3 shelters (one heated) are also offered as an attraction to patrons. With fantastic scenic views and an 18 hole golf course this makes for a unique and accommodating destination.
I have been there many times. Beautiful park with nice beach and great fishing. Close to town and lots to do.
Great place to camp or even go for the day. Beach is a nice place to go and relax. Also can walk the pier
Range of camping available from non electric to sites with electric also cabins are available. 2 swimming, sand beachs on lake Ontario with diving area in the canal that leads to a pond that has excellant fishing. Canoes and paddle boats available. Many hiking trails are around the campground some that lead to secluded trails and secluded areas of other Lake Ontario beaches. Close to town of Fairhaven that has several dining options.
Family friendly and pet friendly. Cabins right along the shore or set back a bit. You can pick based on prefernence. A very nice and calming place
We love this place it has just enough waves that the little kids can jump them. But small enough that they don’t get pulled over by the waves. Absolutely love it Sandy beaches great campsites. Very clean
You have Lake Ontario on one side of the road within the park and Sterling pond on the other. Very unique. Swans are everywhere even though they are not native to the area. My grand kids love to fish on the pond and then go to the huge beach at the lake. Some of the camping sites are close together but if you're lucky enough to camp up on the bluff the sites are only on one side of the road leaving an open view of Lake Ontario. It's just gorgeous at sunset. We've been having family reunions at this park for years. It's beautiful.
Great fishing pond. Sandy beach and friendly people
Loved the campground. The sites were very large and private. The swimming area was a bit of a walk, but was worth it. Great place to camp if you are heading to the Sterling Renaissance Festival.
weve camped here quite a few times as its close by for us. We have been in both the electric loop and the bluff, electric and non electric. The view from the bluff is unbeatable. Bathroom are close by in the electric loop and are always well maintained. Nice park for everyone, very kid friendly
Not too far from Rochester, Syracuse, and Albany. Sunsets are amazing. Sandy beach and hilly wooded park. Basic though recently renovated facilities with electricity at a lot of the tent sits. Get a site by the buffs if you have a tent that can take some serious wind (especially in fall). Avoid Drumlin loop, it’s sandier and smaller sites. They have cabins too. Favorite park in the area and they take good care of it.
