With 10 miles of hiking trails and an 18 hole gold course on site one can get plenty of exercise. This park is made up of 2 lakes formed by glaciers Round Lake and Green Lake. They are considered meromictic lakes meaning the water from the top doesn't mix with the bottom of the lake water. Many scientist come to examine Round Lake, which is off limits for all activites as not to disturb the natural process of the lake. Green Lake however has camping, picnicing, rowboat rentals ball fields etc to make your stay enjoyable. The park is just outside of Syracuse NY to the east and is very clean.
Tenting, trailer or cabin this is a beautiful relaxing area. The upper park has a small lake that runs along side many trails and flows into Cayuga Lake one of the Finger Lakes which is beautiful itself. There are guided tours, hiking, biking, swimming, and fishing available in this tranquil campground. The swimming area is safely guarded and staff with certified guards for your protection. The waterfalls are gorgeous and they flow through a luscious gorge emptying into a marshland full of activity. Bird watching along with other wild life is there . To get away from the hussle of big city come relax here.
A stones throw from NYC this beautiful area combines Lake Welch and Harriman State Park. This camp ground is laid back away from the busy activity of the big city. If you want to get away and relax you can come here to walk, swim and camp. The beach is secured with lifeguards and shower and bathroom facilities are available. The camp ground is on RTE 287 just south of Newburgh.
A beautiful densely wooded campground. Complete with five water falls, spring fed swimming area, hiking trails, all set in a gorge type atmosphere. The 60 camp sites are in private areas protected by wooded areas, but for the less adventurous there are fully serviced cabins available. Hot showers and other conveniences are available. Activities include hiking on many trails, fishing swimming, and what I thought was unique was the spring fed swimming pool. It is cool but refreshing. The winter the camp ground is open for hiking, x country skiing and smobiling. There is a cabin on site that is the replica of Millard Filmore's youth.(13th President of the United States) Loved the area and the beautiful scenery on the hiking trails a must visit for those wanting to get back to nature.
On a recent trip to the Adirondak Mountains we camped at Rollins Ponds. A beautiful wooded campground with adjoining ponds. If you are a kayaker, canoer, or rowboat enthusiaist you'll love this park. There are no motorized boatd allowed on the pond as of the time we camped there. There is however a boat ramp where you can rent these and enjoy the placid waters of the ponds. If you are a fisherman(which we are) there is good fishing in Whey Pond which is stocked with hungry trout. We took a canoe portage from Rollins through Whey through Fish Creek and back crossing narrow strips of land to get from pond to pond. There are great hiking and biking trails as well. The camp ground is very wooded and private and many sites are right on the water. There are more than ample bathroom facilities with hot showers for your convenience. If you are looking for a nearby day trip we climbed one of the High Peaks and for those not so adventurous Lake Placid Olympic facilities and Adirondak Museum at Blue Mountain Lake are approximately 30 miles away. We will go back as we enjoyed this area.
Tent camping in the beautiful winding camp ground many shady trees brings you back to nature. We brought our bikes and explored the many hiking and riding trails on the premises. We loved the swimming beach soaking up the sun and cool refreshing water. As fisherman we loved that the rangers told us that the lake was regularly stocked with trout and other game fish. For the boaters there is an ample ramp to launch as well as boat rentals on the marina. Conveniences are provided with many bathrooms and shower facilities throughout the camp ground. For those not to into tenting there are cabins available to keep you safe. We camped in July, but were told that the park is opened for winter activities such as xcountry skiing and snow mobiling. A fun trip for the whole family
Right on the water front of Seneca Lake(a Finger lake in Central NY) It was a Naval training base during WWll. About 45 minutes from Rochester and about hr and half from Syracuse. It has a Naval museum with many authentic items from that era. Very shady and ample bathroom,shower, and water facilities. If you like wild life you may run into some animals that are indigenous to Central/Western NY. There are boating ramps and nice places to fish off a wall, plus a nice public beach fully staffed with life guards. A store and rec center is located at entrance area of camp ground as well as a big playground for the children
Stayed in the tent area with mature trees giving plenty of shade even at mid day. Two boat ramps for easy launching and quick retrieval of your motor boats. The beautiful beach is well attended with life guards on duty keeping you safe but still allowing much fun on the very clean white sand. The lake is a flooded area foaming a reservoir stocked with game fish as bass, perch, and pike. There is a very nice playground for the children and ample bathroom facilities including showers. It is opened in the winter months as well for snow mobiles and x country skiing.
Not too far from Tupper Lake in the Adirondak Mountains most camp sites right on the water of clean/clear Fish Creek Pond . Most sites have shade and some have docks with them. Vendors of Wood, Ice Cream, Pansteries/baked goods, bait, and others come through the camp area once a day. There is an outdoor church for those interested in Mass and or Services on Sundays. Things to do for the kids like arts and crafts A general store with EVERYTHING you can think of is a bout a couple miles off the property. There is time for sailing canoeing motor boating including skiing. Fishing right off the banks of your site is a convenient way to fish as much as you like. Rangers patrol constantly keeping all the campers safe and provide a enjoyable atmosphere. Love to take weeks at a time to stay in this lovely area. A canoe portage is available which connects to Rollins Ponds its sister camp ground
I took the family camping to this State Park in the tenting area. The camp sites are a mixture of shade and sun making the experience very enjoyable where you will NOT bake in the sun every daylight hour. It has a beautiful well groomed sandy white beach fully staffed by certified lifeguards. For the boating enthusist there is a well designed boat launch. Not only is there great fishing off the piers into Lake Ontario but there is a pond easily accessed for most to fish for trout, bass, and other fresh water species. During the fall there is a huge salmon run where fish up to 30 lbs are caught regularly. The park itself is clean with many bathrooms with showers are available. Overall we had a great time
