Get Away From It All At This Crystal Clear Lake In New York
With thousands of options in front of you as a resident, it’s often hard to decide which direction you’ll want to head in when it comes to taking an outdoor adventure of any sorts. Situated within Central New York where attractions are just a stone’s throw from the majority of our other regions, see why it’s worth taking the drive out to this one breathtaking lake in Onondaga County.
Only 15-minutes east of Syracuse, Green Lakes State Park is one of the most breathtaking adventures you'll ever take here in New York.
The main attraction of the state park is Green Lake - one of the only meromictic lakes in the entire world.
Made up of water that never mixes, because of Green Lake's rare makeup, you can literally see right through the water.
Giving you a chance to see wildlife and the unique systems that live with the lake, you'll be amazed at how transparent yet vibrant the water is.
As if this natural wonder couldn't get any better, what goes perfectly with a crystal clear lake?
Well, how about clear kayaks! That's right, visitors of the state park actually have the opportunity to rent clear kayaks to achieve the ultimate views of Green Lake.
*Note - Because of how unique and special both Green and Round Lakes are, no outside kayaks, boats, or canoes are allowed within the state park, which makes this clear kayaking adventure all the more memorable and worth experiencing.
Leaving you in absolute awe, from kayaking and hiking...
...to actually swimming in the gorgeous water of the lake at the state park's beach, you'll love all the different ways to experience this place.
If you've always dreamed of going for a ride in a clear kayak or have yet to cross off this jaw-dropping natural wonder from your bucket list, be sure to plan a summer trip to Green Lakes State Park this year.
