This State Park Is One Of Western New York’s Most Beautiful Hidden Gems

New York has so many massive parks, forests and wilderness areas for locals and tourists to explore that it can be hard to track how many outdoor opportunities there are. But there are also some smaller parks and landmarks across the state that don’t get quite as much attention as hotspots like Letchworth State Park and Adirondack Park. The 568-acre Stony Brook State Park in Steuben County is one of the best parks in New York you probably haven’t visited. Here are just a few reasons why.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Stony Brook State Park also has a prime location just south of the Finger Lakes, as well as Letchworth State Park. Or spend a day in Buffalo, which is only 90 minutes away.
