State Parks, Historic Sites, and Recreation Areas in the Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes offers visitors and residents a wealth of recreational activities, including 38 state parks, historic sites, and recreation areas, 6 of which are or have golf courses.

Regional Offices 

Many of these sites, especially the parks with gorges and waterfalls, have interesting geological and human histories. Be sure to pick up a brochure at the entrance to the site and read it before you start exploring, so that you get the most out of your site experience. For more information about these sites and for a variety of printed material about the sites in the Finger Lakes Region, contact or visit the relevant regional office.

Access Programs 

If you plan to frequent the state parks often, consider purchasing an Empire Passport, an annual pass to the state's parks and recreational facilities. New York State residents 62 years old or older qualify for the Golden Park Program, which allows free access to state parks on non-holiday weekdays. And the Access Pass provides free access to all state parks, historic sites, and certain recreational facilities to residents with permanent disabilities.

Picking Plants 

Please remember that, unlike in some states, picking, digging, or cutting down plants is illegal in New York state parks.

 

Take only pictures, leave only footprints, kill only time.
