Whetstone Gulf State Park is located 6 miles
south of Lowville just off Route 26. Whetstone’s winter recreation
season is from mid-December to the first week in March. A heated recreation
building with restrooms is open Tuesday through Sunday, closed Monday.
There is no charge for cross-country skiing. Whetstone has approximately
5 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails that go through the picnic
area, loop around the camping area and follow the exercise trail. The
trails accommodate levels of skiers from novice to expert. All skiers
should register at the recreation building. No person should start on
the trails after 3 p.m. or be on the trails after dark.
Additional information and maps are available at the park entrance booth
and recreation building.
Whetstone Gulf State Park also offers camping, picnicking, swimming, and
hiking in season. For more information about the Park call (315) 376-6630.
