I used to go to Fahnestock State Park when I was a kid. Kinda like what I remembered. Very nice place to visit. You can swim,fish and BBQ. Parking is 7 bucks and boost rentals are very cheap. $25 for a whole days rental. Bass, pickerel and more. Beach is kinda small but I've seen worse.

Never been to the beach. Kayaked on the lake at least 20 times, very nice never crowded. Camped at the camp ground once nice but a little close I normaly go to the Adirondacks but can't go that far now because this place has cell service

Awesome hiker friendly stop. Hikers...stay here, it is great! Bathrooms, electricity, a pond to swim in, boats, and a good concession stand from 10-6 most days for burgers, etc. Check this place out, you will love it!

I love coming here in the winter to go cross country skiing. The irony is, I've never been here in the summer and today it's just warm enough so I can enjoy the view of the lake while skiing. The staff is courteous and parking is easy. They just got new equipment this winter - even better quality than before.
