Southwick Beach State Park is very popular, known for outstanding long sandy beach. Campers and day users of this park enjoy picnicking, hiking and games on the playing fields. The park is adjacent to the Lakeview Wildlife Management Area, home to the environmentally sensitive coastal sand dunes.

Park nature, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails adjoin the wildlife management area and its trail system, which visitors are encouraged to use. During the winter, snowmobiles are permitted in the park. Deer hunting is allowed south of the park entrance in season.

Our suggested hike to do if you visit this state park is the Lakeview Natural Beach Hike which is featured in the Hiking New York, 3rd Edition guide book.  Below we have pictures and a couple of maps of this area.  Check out the NY State Parks website for more information on this state park. 


  • Located on the Lake Ontario shore, off NY 3, southwest of Watertown.
