Located in the rolling hills of Western New York is where you will find Stony Brook State Park. The park is rich in scenery, featuring a rugged gorge and a landscape that is perfect for hiking, picnicking, swimming and more. For sports lovers, there is a range of sporting facilities to make use of, as well as a beach area for those that come to the park to escape busy city life.
The park covers 569 acres, so there is plenty of room for everyone that will book an RV in Steuben County. The Upper, Middle and Lower falls are quite beautiful to behold, and family and friends can enjoy days hiking the trails, observing the varied wildlife or just relaxing under the shade of the trees in this beautiful environment. In winter the park transforms into a winter wonderland, and instead of hiking, visitors can dig out their skis or just play in the snow. Despite being a great escape from busy day to day life, the towns of Mount Morris, Avoca and Hornell are all close enough to stock up on supplies and do a little shopping.
Hiking in Stony Brook State Park rewards those that visit with stunning vistas of the gorge and surrounding landscape. The Gorge Trail is particularly popular as the path will take you past three huge cascading waterfalls, plus is not a particularly hard trail to follow. There are, however, some trails that you would have to be a little more advanced to tackle such as the Rim Trails, but all will reward with some amazing views along the way. These also will take you past some waterfalls as well as mountainous rock formations. You’ll be ready to head back to your RV rental after a long day of hiking.
One of the more unique but attractive activities in the park is taking a dip in the cooling natural pool. This area is fed by the natural streams that tumble down the mountainside. You'll have to hike to reach the pool area, but the refreshing waters will make the trek well worth it. There is park staff on duty to help ensure the safety of all those using the pools, which is great for those traveling with family.
The fun doesn't stop when the weather starts getting cooler, in fact, a whole new season of fun opens up in Stony Brook State Park with the arrival of snow. Cross country skiing is very popular during the winter, as people come from miles around to enjoy the three miles of groomed trails. If skiing isn't for you, then bring the kids and have a snowman building competition or walk through the trees in your own little winter wonderland, as some trails are more geared towards winter hiking.
RV camping at Stony Brook State Park campground is a good idea if you want to step out your front door straight into nature. Electric and water hook-ups are not available, which does make it more of a rustic experience, but there are dump and comfort stations.
Dine alfresco using the picnic table and fire rings provided at each site and bring your pet with you to join the adventure, as long as it is no more than two. You are allowed six people per site, which are gravel and back in. There are wooded RV sites scattered throughout the park, some of which are located by the creek offering a very picturesque setting for camping with an RV. The campgrounds are closed during the winter.
Another option to consider is Sugar Creek Glen Campground. Located close to the interstate, this campground offers campers waterfall views, electric hookups, a recreation hall, hot showers, and is pet-friendly. Maximum length though is 38 feet.
Get to know the area a little better by paying a visit to the Dansville Area Historical Society Museum. The town of Dansville is full of history, and you are able to see it all by taking a walking tour of all the historical sights. The town is so close that a Dansville camper rental could be a good idea when wanting to explore the park.
