Selkirk Shores Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"At Selkirk Shores State Park in Oswego County, the sunsets are legendary. And it’s not a bad place for stargazing either. This square-shaped park supports breeding populations of marsh birds such as the pied-billed grebe, the American bittern, and the least bittern, and each spring, migratory songbirds concentrate here along the eastern shores of Lake Ontario. The campground is essentially divided into two main sections of tent and trailer sites (subdivided into A, B, C, and D loops), with a separate cabin colony where lodging is available at higher daily and weekly rates. Each section has its own shower house. Sites 94 and 95 are handicapped accessible as are cabins 3, 10, and 24. Firewood is available for purchase at the park office. Due to a waterfront reconstruction project, swimming and wading are no longer possible at Selkirk Shores. However, at Sandy Island Beach State Park 7 miles away to the north, campers can swim for free. Canoeists and kayakers may launch small craft into Lake Ontario at the end of Pine Grove Road."
