Situated about two-thirds of the way up the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, Sampson State Park is one of the largest and most accessible parks in the Finger Lakes, with a rich and interesting history. A former military installation for both the Navy and Air Force, the park is intertwined with a 38-mile network of former roads which now serve as excellent hiking and biking trails. The park is a favorite of campers and boaters, with 309 campsites (245 with electrical) and over 100 boat slips. Picturesque views of Seneca Lake can be viewed from the many picnic shelters which can be reserved for special events, while both kids and adults can enjoy the multitude of recreational facilities including playgrounds, a swimming area, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, and a fitness trail. Its sheer size and number of activities and amenities makes Sampson State Park a popular destination for day-trippers and vacationers alike.
