If you fancy a boat trip and arriving at a serene location where you have the beach and various other activities, then you should put Canoe-Picnic Point State Park on your list. This area is only reachable by boat, and it boasts of a quiet camping experience in a wooded area, which you would not find anywhere else.
There is plenty of dock space available, so people do not have to jostle to get some space. Boat rentals nearby are available, all you need to do is call the park for more information. There is a Picnic Point just south of the camping area where there are a beautiful picnic gazebo and excellent picnic grounds.
Fishing is excellent, and you can even prepare your catch on the shore dinner cooking facility that is always kept clean. This beautiful state park is a haven for canines of all sizes, but they must have proof of current rabies vaccination or a certificate of immunization or dated collar tag.
Only household pets are allowed, and they must either be caged or leashed; however, the leash must not be longer than six feet. The picnic area is off-limits for pets, and campers only allow a maximum of two pets. Waterfowl hunting is one of the most popular activities in the park when in season.
Hiking trails are available for use, and you can quickly take Spike on a hike with you, but he must be on a leash. Most New York State Parks charge a vehicle use fee to enter their facilities, and Canoe-Picnic Point is no exception.
However, prices may vary according to location and season. The vehicle entry fee at Canoe-Picnic Point is $6 and $4 if you come after 4 PM. The Empire Pass access card costs $80 and is your key to all-season enjoyment of parks with the unlimited day-use entry of all facilities.
