Oneida Shores County Park

This was one of the best town parks that we visited, and their playground was definitely the best.  It has outdoor instruments, a rope climbing set, saucer swings, bouncy pavement-it is awesome. There is a large sand beach and large swimming area-there is even a separate dog beach.  All facilities were clean and well maintained; […]

Trenton Town Park

This is a large town park with tennis, sports fields, and multiple pavilions.  The park is free, but there is a swim fee for non-residents.  The swimming area is large, though the water looks a little muddy.  Very nice park though. http://town.trenton.ny.us/content/Parks/View/2

Hinkley Reservoir Day Use Area

This day use area is surprisingly large considering how hard it was to find the actual location online.  This probably explains why it has a huge parking lot, but wasn’t crowded on even a Saturday, unlike some of the other public parks.  The park is actually on Stormy King Road, not on Route 365 as […]

Delta Lake State Park

This location is very popular on weekends, and there is a large swimming area with multiple lifeguards.  They have a wide sand beach and all facilities. Interestingly, this is a man-made lake which submerged the village of Delta when it was created in the early 1900s.  Most of the buildings were removed before the flooding, […]

Pixley Falls State Park

This is a “See” location; though kids were splashing in the falls, it is too shallow to actually swim. This is a beautiful fall, and the park has multiple picnic areas, which we believe used to be campsites. This is a very small park and you can hear the falls when you enter, so it […]

Erwin Park Boonville

This is a town park in Boonville, with a large swimming area, sports fields, and picnic areas.  This is a pretty park, that is quite large for a town park, and has multiple lifeguards.  No pets allowed. http://village.boonville.ny.us/content/Parks/View/1

Ager’s Falls

There is a brown and yellow sign for Ager’s Falls Recreational Area, and then signs directing you to the parking lot for the falls.  The falls are visible from the parking lot. This is a gorgeous location, and we think it is one of the best in the state.  There is a meduim sized fall […]

Whitaker Falls Park

This location is variously called Whitaker or Whittaker, but we went with the town website spelling of “Whitaker” http://villageoflowville.org/content/Parks/View/3 This is a sort of unusual park in that it has a gorgeous set of waterfalls, but we didn’t find the access very clear.  The falls could be a great tourist attraction, but the access is a little […]

Whetstone Gulf State Park

This is a man-made swimming area with tannic water, and a sand beach.  There is a playground and restrooms are available; dogs are allowed, but not on the beach. http://nysparks.com/parks/92/details.aspx

Westcott Beach State Park

We don’t have many pictures of this location because they are very serious about prohibiting dogs from entering the day use area.  They did give us 5 minutes to take pictures, which was very nice of them. This park has a large beach with a large swimming area, and crystal clear water.  There are sports […]
