We've visited Stewart Park beside the Lake many times and in all seasons. In summer it has playground and wading areas, and in most seasons the restroom facilities are available. There are wide expanses of open fields, sunny and shaded, for picnicking or other activities, as well as shoreline areas to explore. Parking is quite good and photo-opportunities are many.

Beautiful scenery! The falls are gorgeous and can be seen by young and old alike from the drive up lookout. Worth the trip. There is a trail to the bottom of the falls also. There is camping nearby too.

So many things to do in the Finger Lakes. Definitely a vacation destination. You can spend an entire day doing the winery tours. Or take in one the many state parks for a picnic or a walk on the lake. Shopping, inns, local food joints & fine restaurants. Has it all. We love the Inns at Aurora but you should... More

We spent time on the banks of the lake at Stewart Park. There is a picnic area and we had a BARBQ and picnic with family and friends. The first day was cold and very windy so we were not able to spend much time but the next day weather was bright and sunny and we sat enjoying the view... More

We spent a full day up and down the lengths of Cayuga Lake this holiday weekend, and it is well worth the trip. The scenery is beautiful, and the roads pass by a number of gorgeous State Parks that you can visit and enjoy the time. I advise you to research these ahead of time, as they are very diverse...

Just see for yourself and make a day of it. Look on maps app at all the parks and attractions and plot a course. You wont be disappointed. There is so much to see and do that it just may take a few days. Well worth the adventure.
