The roar of ATVs and off-road motorcycles combines with the peacefulness of rolling hills at Finger Lakes State Park, one of two ATV parks in the state parks system. Built in a former coal mining area, Finger Lakes’ trails and motocross track are popular with users who come for the day, but often fall under the spell of the spacious campground, leafy trees and hilly terrain. The park is also the site of the state’s newest mountain bike trail, the challenging 2.25-mile Kelley Branch Trail, scheduled to open in Spring 2011.

We stayed here with our tear drop and loved it! They have a swimming area with bathrooms, trails for your atv's, fishing, and kayak trails with kayak rental. The last was our favorite. The trail is split and goes two different ways that are marked with buoys that are red and blue. They are both great and only take about... More

I loved riding the trails down there on my dirt bike and liked there facilities. But the younger park ranger was a real pain. He kept harassing us and following us,and we were never doing anything wrong. So I rate this a 5 on trails. -0 on park rangers.

My husband and I rented a tandem kayak and paddled the water trails. The equipment was ok; the park ranger was kind and helpful. The trail itself is clearly marked, but not particularly scenic. Perhaps it would be of more interest in another season.

Went here over the summer with my family. It was a little run down for a state park and the service at the park was not great. You can rent kayaks on site.

Lots of loud ATVs-not meant for quiet family camping in spite of the scenic, peaceful appearing surroundings.
