It's a really nice clean park. Me, my family and friends spend a great deal of our time throughout the year. There is always something to do to make sure everyone is having a good time such as renting a boat, fishing, hiking or riding your bike along the trails , disc golf, and so much more...

We went here two weeks ago for a great game of disc golf. They have two different courses and different tees for different ability levels. It was scenic, fun, and good exercise. On a busy summer day they could probably benefit by having a roaming water vendor along the way. That said, it really wasn't too busy on a Saturday... More

A 50' water slide with all day pass for $10.00 kept 11 year old twins and 15 year old teenagers plenty busy having a riot with 3 slides on one large inflated slide. We all kayaked and did a little cooling off in shallow waters. There are several beaches and miles of trails and picnic areas. It's great to roller... More

A delightful nature reserve for those who want to escape the busy urban life of Troy and Rochester, for an evening. Spotted some deers and other wildlife amidst lush greenery along the lakeside. The park was well maintained, especially near the swimming area.

Stony Creek is a fantastic park to enjoy the outdoors at. From the water, to the trails, to all the other facilities, this park has it all. I enjoy kayaking in the lake when the weather is warm. They offer winter outdoor activities as well. I highly recommend obtaining a metro park pass. They are well-worth the money within several... More

I enjoyed just kicking back and relaxing on a blanket under a shade tree reading a book. I walked on the beach and watched the kayakers, boaters, paddle boarders, and swimmers.
