We stumbled on this park looking for a way to spend an afternoon. We absolutely loved it. The water is very shallow and great with young kids. View is beautiful with moored boats all around you. Water is very cold though.

The park is in real good condition with a lot of places to picnic or grill out. I enjoy watching the dogs at the small boat launch and seeing the wind surfers.

We are kind of missing the appeal of Canandaigua... This is a nice, lakefront park on the north end of the lake. We stopped for a picnic at one of the many provided tables and it was enjoyable. There were folks with dogs playing on...More

Yes, on a leash. There is also a small beach area to the East side of the park where pets can swim. Get there early in the morning as it can get busy.

Yes, There are a few available. Make sure to look at them on a map first. Some of them at the East side of the park are very close to the road.
