Getting Outdoors

Westcott Beach State Park is fringed by a long stretch of sand overlooking Henderson Bay. It's easy to spend the day soaking up the sun, cooling off in the shallows, and paddling in the sheltered bay. If you're RV camping with little ones, head to the south section of the beach which is designated as a "kiddie" zone. Picnic tables dot the grassy foreshore and are great for enjoying lunch with a view. Of course, no picnic is complete without lashings of Thousand Island dressing.

Lake Ontario is famous for its black bass fishing, so why not bring a rod and try your luck? Cast a line from the shore or use the small marina to launch a fishing boat. The calm waters of Henderson Bay are also ideal for canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding. Stay for sunset to see Lake Ontario light up in reds, yellows, and golds.

A handful of trails wind through Westcott Beach State Park and are great for stretching your legs after a leisurely lunch. The popular Plateau Loop Trail rewards you with gorgeous views over Lake Ontario and the surrounding hillsides. In winter, the trails transform into snow-dusted playgrounds for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
