A dramatic 3-mile canyon cut into the Tug Hill Plateau forms the centerpiece of Whetstone Gulf State Park and serves as a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts year after year. Encompassing 2,400 acres of forest plus a 50-foot waterfall, this uncommon place on the western edge of the Adirondacks drips with natural beauty. Shaded by red pine and Norway spruce, the small campground is right off Route 26 and includes a scenic picnic area on Whetstone Creek itself. All but six of the sites are grouped together around a pair of comfort stations and a shower house. Another restroom with showers is next to the man-made swimming area; site 3 is handicapped accessible. The 5.6-mile Gorge Trail is a somewhat challenging hike that leads around the park’s main feature. Remember to always use caution near cliff edges. Above the gorge, Whetstone Reservoir is stocked with tiger muskie and largemouth bass. Located just outside of Lowville on Yancey Road, Tug Hill Vineyards can be a fun diversion from hiking and fishing. Farther to the north, the American Maple Museum is worth a visit if you’re planning a longer stay in Lewis County.
