New York State Parks
Whetstone Gulf State Park is built in and around a stunning three mile long gorge cut into the eastern edge of the Tug Hill Plateau. The gorge has some spectacular scenic vistas. This state park is worth a visit to explore. The park has 56 wooded campsites some of which have electric, a scenic picnic area along Whetstone Creek, a man-made swimming area and trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, one of which circles the gorge.
The most popular hike within the park is the gorge loop. The hike is a moderate 5.6 mile loop.
* Located off NY 26, 6 miles south of Lowville, near Adirondack Park.
