This place is really run down and rides are old and rusted. The workers act sedated, totally not helpful. Most of the arcade games are broken. Will not go back.

Restrooms and restaurants within the amusement park I can't believe pass health inspections.(No Soap Or Way to Dry Hands in any Public Restroom) The beach area is filthy and not family... More

This should be a nice swimming beach but it is not! Beer bottles all over the picnic area and teens playing their car stereo so loud you can't talk to your friend and teens carrying on smoking "stuff". Signs all over about no dogs allowed on beach or picnic area and about 24 hour surveillance. Really?!!!!! Where is the surveillance... More

Sylvan beach is a nice one day get away for families looking to entertain their kids. They have a nice amusement park with kiddie rides and lots of fun for older kids too. The beach is nice as well. The town has some restaurants and ice came shops where you can grab something to eat. The parking is cheap, we... More

I've been to plenty of amusement parks to know what to expect and it's unfortunate that the amusement park at Sylvan Beach is in obvious need of some TLC - and I'm not just talking about a fresh coat of paint. Dilapidated buildings, cobwebs, (certainly not for decoration) and leery-looking rides didn't exactly make me want to jump into anything... More

When the parks not open they have restaurants and a flea market and beautiful scenery. The amusement parks great for the kids, even we had fun playing the games and just looking at the lake.

When of the kast renaining historic parks of it's kind. 100 years ago most lake communities had one. Sits on the bank of Oneida Lake. They have a great sandy beach. No admission to park, but unless you find a free spot on the street, they do charge a small fee for parking, mostly because of the beach. Nice place... More

This is a great place to visit if you have little kids. They have a lot of rides, food, and mini golf. I love walking through the park because it is really nice right on the lake and near the entrance to the village. It is reputedly haunted and Ghost Hunters filmed an episode there. They got an old-fashioned shooting... More
