I love Sunken Meadow as I go running there several times a week. I avoid going on Weekends during the warm weather. An Empire Pass is a must.

Great day trip for couples, families or friends. Great for walking, running, hiking and sunbathing. Also nice to just sit and read a book. In the summer they have live music and food specials

This one is huge. I do not even remember what I paid at the toll booth to get in off the parkway, but it was well worth it. A golf course, ball field, play grounds, board walk with pavilion, and not the least, the beach...More

Is it available for parties? My son is turning one and I thought it would be a great idea, to have the whole family with such a beautiful view.
