Staff Picks: Father's Day Picnics in Parks
Here are our choices for some
perfect picnic spots to take dad
on his special day.
"Although it offers a modestly-sized picnic area, it provides an unbeatable view of Lake Ontario's vastness highlighted by one of New York's most striking geologic features."
"The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful coupled with an interesting American history lesson. It’s a nice getaway."
"It has the best BBQ spots for summer!"
"I have vivid memories of spending hot summer days on the beach here with my dad and sister when we were too young to care if our dad made any embarrassing jokes around us."
This is a great place to spend the day (or the weekend if you like camping!) hiking, fishing, swimming, and grilling, all while taking in the breathtaking views!
"Pavilions with grills in wooded areas, with close access to the beach!"
"The natural "swimming hole" and walks through the impressive gorges offer one of the more scenic pre- and post-picnic activities in any New York State park."
"Saratoga Spa State Park is great for a picnic because you can sit anywhere and have a great view. The park is well-maintained and the architecture is beautiful."
