Parks and Beaches

Year-round fun for the whole family

Tupper Lake's pretty beaches and sprawling parks make it easy for families to enjoy the great outdoors, all year long. Discover the fun of playing in the snow together, sledding down a hill, exploring a waterfront playground, and splash all day long at a sunny beach.

In summer, Waterfront Park is home to the Summer Sunset Concert Series, is a great place for a bike ride, fishing, and enjoying the Little Loggers Playground, while Little Wolf Beach is a secluded spot perfect for swimming and family picnics.

The snows of winter offer ice fishing, sledding, room for snowball fights, and learning to cross-country ski. Special events throughout winter offer extra fun, too!
