“Beautiful to walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've been walking around Green and Round Lakes for many years and love it! The trails are well-groomed and you can also take less traveled trails through old wood forests or meadows full of birds. And if you're over 65, you get into the park for free during the week in summer. They also groom the trails in winter for cross country skiing. It has a beach,campsite, golf course and clubhouse. I feel lucky to live so close.

“Beautiful state park!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a real hidden gem in the greater Syracuse area. There is a lovely sand beach, pavilions for a party, a Robert Trent Jones golf course, and campgrounds with cabins or tent/trailer lots. There are hiking trails which become cross country skiing trails in the winter months as well. The two lakes in the park are meromictic, very unusual and rare throughout the country. Love this park and would definitely recommend it!

“Cabins”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Lovely lakes, beach, and nice hiking trails. Nature centre offers 4 to 5 activities a week. Big events are listed on their Facebook page. Snack bar at beach sells ice cream bars, hotdogs etc. Easy drive to big grocery stores in Fayetteville and attractions in Syracuse. Cabins are basic and need some updating, but did the job. Mattresses are TERRIBLE! I plan to post pictures, since I couldn't find any before we left. Cabin comes with broom, mop, garbage bags, recycling bin, curtains and toilet paper.

“Beautiful!”

Gorgeous water, nothing like it anywhere. Sit on the beach, swim in the clean lake, walk around the lakes - what more could you ask for?
