Sandy Island Beach State Park

Sandy Island Beach State Park, in the Township of Sandy Creek, is on the shoreline that is part of the Eastern Lake Ontario Dune and Wetland System. The park offers parking, designated beach access, restrooms, picnic facilities, barbecue areas, as well as fishing and opportunities for hikers, bird-watchers, canoeists and kayakers.

Walk-overs and viewing platforms in the park protect the fragile coastal barrier environment, a 17-mile-long stretch of beaches, sand dunes, embayments and wetlands that extends north from western Oswego County to Jefferson County. The system includes the largest and most extensive freshwater sand dune formations in the Northeast.

During summer the beach is watched by lifeguards so families can have fun on the sandy beaches and in the waves of Lake Ontario.
