Grafton Lakes State Park

Can anyone tell me about this park?

Amenities, how busy it is on weekends, or would you recommend another park instead - and overall, is it worth an hour's drive?

Re: Grafton Lakes State Park

  • I haven't been since I was a teenager but I remember we always had a great time.  I loved going there as a kid.  I don't remember it being too busy.  I know we'd get there early so we could get a picnic table in the shade.  My parents would claim the table and then we'd go swimming for a bit and then eat lunch.  My family still talks about the memories of going there, there's a funny story about when we went there that gets brought up every once in a while. 

    I've actually been talking to my sister about possibly taking my nephew there sometime this summer.  I think he'd love it!  I'm sure your girls would love it too.

  • It's nice, they have rowboats, and a playground, and other typical statepark things (hiking trails, lake).  It gets very crowded on the weekends. 

    A few weeks ago my extended family went to Cherry Plain State Park.  We had about a dozen people from age 2 to 60, and everyone enjoyed it alot.  They also had a rowboat rental, but also hiking, picnic tables, a playground and campsites.  It was pretty awesome.  It's about 45 minutes off of the East Greenbush exit on 90. 

  • That's funny, we spent a whole Saturday at Cherry Plain a couple weekends ago!  It was very nice, not too crowded.  I was wondering if Grafton is way too crowded compared to Cherry Plain.
