Parks


The abundance of State Parks in the Finger Lakes is evidence of the beautiful scenery making up this region of New York. Some parks offer a lake front view while others show off the sound and visual of rushing water with gorges and waterfalls. The impressive number of state parks in the Finger Lakes is surpassed only by the variety and quality in these parks.
