What They Are about

The large beach at Canopus Lake is the jewel of Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park. Its sandy shore and nearby picnic area are enjoyed by thousands of bathers. In addition to swimming, campers and day trippers can fish in or tour Canopus Lake by rowboats, which are available for rental by the hour or the day. 

The park is also home to the Taconic Outdoor Education Center, which provides high-quality environmental programming and Fahnestock Winter Park, which includes 20 kilometers of groomed trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
