This place is always busy. It is mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. It is always busy. Great Nature trails. Note this is not rugged hiking They are all well maintained trails around two lakes. There are more rugged trails off the back side of round lake (the second lake). Note grab a map if you will venture beyond the two lakes.... More

This is one of my favorite places to play in New York, and I'm lucky enough to have it just a few miles from where I live. Leave your ball retriever home, there are no water holes here. The course goes through rolling hills and finishes off at a newly remodeled clubhouse the offers one of the best views you... More

How lucky we are to have such a wonderful and well kept state park right here! Trails are great for running and walking. Very family friendly. Such beautiful scenery every where you look - favorite times - fall and early morning!

Cheap therapy. Beautiful. Groups, singles, couples. Love, love, love. Not a difficult walk. Watch for ticks. Check after your walk.

Stopped in a little to late to get a great idea of the park. Gets dark fast lately. Well paved roads, lots of parking and amendments. Beach is huge. We love this park! Can't wait to come back when the weather is warmer.

I can not say enough good things about Green Lakes state park. The beach is super popular in the summer. The campgrounds are nearly always full. The golf course is top rate. The trails for walking, running, hiking and biking are beautiful. The wildlife is plentiful. Just bring your tick repellent and don't wander too far off trail.

Stopped overnight on a road trip. This State Park has been completely renovated with wonderful RV and camping areas. The park is truly lovely and I wish I would have had more time there. Dog friendly. Large campsites, full hook ups. No TV, but you won't miss it. I will definitely be staying here again should I be traveling in... More
