Stoney Pond State Forest Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Consisting of a mixed forest where red pine, white pine, and Norway spruce grow alongside natural hardwoods such as American beech, sugar maple, black cherry, and white ash, Stoney Pond covers 1,469 acres just outside of Morrisville. The campground here is primitive and lacks many of the amenities common elsewhere in the region. The price, however, can’t be beat. Sites 3, 10, and 14 are handicapped accessible, while sites 16 and 17 are intended for tents only and must be reached via a short footpath. Swimming in Stoney Pond is prohibited and gas-powered boats aren’t allowed on the water, but bird watching for blue herons, Canada geese, and other waterfowl is encouraged. Note that posted restrictions also forbid ATVs and horses in the camping area. Chittenango Falls, a small state park that includes a number of short hikes, is about 20 minutes away by car."
