A Parks and Recreation Guide to locations for outdoor adventures in WNY.

State Park in the City of Salamanca, Cattaraugus County.


The largest state park in WNY with over 65,000 acres.  Lakes, streams, creeks, woodland forests, cabin camping, and miles of trails make this park an endless nature retreat of discovery.  Hiking, boating, fishing and camping are just some of the activities for all seasons.

There are numerous locations to view wildlife by either driving the roadways or via trails.  The bear caves are neat to explore.  Stone Tower offers a scenic vantage point.  All the lakes are good for crappie, bass, perch, bullhead and catfish anglers.  Other waters are stocked with brown, brook and rainbow trout.  A special park permit is required, also limited hunting during specific seasons.  Get details from the Administration building.
