Great trails, so so beach. The lakes are beautiful. Just a wonderful park. Very crowded on summer weekends, and lots of deer ticks. Just make sure your dogs are treated and stay on the trails.

I grew up in nearby East Syracuse and looked forward to our family trips here in the summer and then later with friends and never wanting to leave. I still recall my first high dive at age 11. The path around the lake was always such a pleasant hike. I remember seeing out of state license plates thinking that the park was so special that people came from great distances to visit. Returning as an adult has made me appreciate how lucky I was to live so close by. The proximity to the Erie Canal Bike Trail makes it ideal for bikers.

I have been to this place countless times and can still make a trip to enjoy the peaceful walk around the emerald green lake. It is particularly beautiful in fall. The little restaurant near the point of entry offers pretty vantage point where one can sip coffee and enjoy the view. Good site for golf lovers too although I have never made use of that facility.

You can swim here on a well-guarded beach. Refreshment stand is available but service is very, very slow. Lovely walk around the lake on a path frequented by runners. Strollers work nicely here.
