“Another great NY State Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Nestled at the southern end of Grand Island is a lovely day use state park. Beaver Island is a 950 acre park with a 1/2 mile sandy beach. There is also an 80 slip marina (seasonal and transient), fishing access, all kinds of boat launches, bike and nature trails, playgrounds, picnic areas and shelters, a boardwalk, athletic fields, horseshoe pits, an 18 hole championship disc gold course, and 18 hole championship golf course (with a snack bar), and all kinds of winter activities are allowed there, also (some need permits). The Grand Island Historical Society meet in River Lea,the home of Grover Cleveland's nephew (Cleveland actually visited there). Unfortunately, I have yet to attend one of their open houses (Sept 21, 2-4 is the next one, I think). The new Beaver Island Clubhouse has banquet facilities and catering available. The snack bar (which seemed to offer only hot dogs and ice cream today). changing/rest rooms are at the back of the Clubhouse. All-in-all, this is a nice park for all ages. This year the rate seems to be $7 per car. Seniors - M-Th is free if you show your license.

“Beautiful State Park”

The state park is worth the trip if in the area. Nice setting on the river and great for a family picnic.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Great views of Buffalo and Canada, lots of different things to do and never too busy. Watch for speed traps on the way in from the parkway.

“Beatiful Park with a Disc Golf Course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Went to Beaver Island to play disc golf with my friends and we had a great choice. Park is very clean and open. There is lots to do for the family and the disc golf course was amazing. Awesome layout, with wide open holes for beginners. Course is well maintained. When you pay to enter the park let them know your playing disc and they will give you a score card!
