The Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York is popular with outdoor lovers due to its proximity to excellent fishing lakes and gorgeous state parks. Guests of Finger Lakes vacation rentals have easy access to the expansive Lake Ontario in addition to smaller lakes such as Cayuga Lake, Owasco Lake, Seneca Lake, and Keuka Lake.

Outdoor enthusiasts will certainly appreciate all of the excellent opportunities for adventure that the 25 Finger Lakes state parks afford. One of the most famous, and for good reason, is Watkins Glen State Park, where the glen’s stream falls 400 feet past 200 foot cliffs and creates 19 waterfalls along the way. Other popular parks include Keuka Lake State Park, which lies in the heart of wine country, and Robert H. Treman State Park, where hiking and swimming are favorite pastimes.

For a vacation centered around outdoor pursuits, including hiking, fishing, canoeing, boating, sailing, and more, set your compass for the gorgeous Lake Ontario.
