Four Mile Creek State Park, Youngstown, NY

Date of Stay:  Monday July 23 - Tuesday July31, 2012 (8 nights)

Rate: $30/night

Website:  Four Mile Creek State Park (NY)
   1055 Lake Road
   Youngstown, NY 14174

Description:  Paved roads with grass/gravel parking pads.  Electricity at site (some 30A and some 50A) but no water or sewer hook up.  Dump station near the exit.  We were in site 65 which was close enough for us to fill our fresh tank using all of our hoses.  CG is on the banks of Lake Ontario and you can see the skyline of Toronto, Canada at times.  Not many trees on the sites and not much privacy between sites.  The main draw here is it’s closeness to Niagara Falls.  We traveled here with Dan and Tricia and met their friends Mac and Moe who joined us at the Falls.  Tricia’s son and DiL (Brandon and Amanda) caught a flight to Buffalo, NY and joined us all at the Falls.

Activities:  Didn’t really spend much time checking out things to do around the park since we mainly came here to go to Niagara Falls.  We did enjoy several beautiful sunsets over Lake Ontario and the open field behind our site.  Nice place to ride our bikes too.  We enjoyed the scenic drive in to town by going down the road next to the Niagara River.  Beautiful, powerful, turquoise water.

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpster at the bathhouse and recycle bins for cans, glass and plastic also.
