Higley Flow Professional Review and Guide
"On the Raquette River, west of the South Cotton Reservoir, Higley Flow State Park is part of the Thousand Islands region, even though it’s closer to the Adirondacks. Spread out over a group of hills along Route 56, six loops of campsites, each with restrooms, are shaded by stands of red and white pine. Sites 24, 25, 36, 38, 39, 92–96, 119, and 122 are closest to the water, while sites 22 and 23 were built according to guidelines set out in the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA. Loop B is next to the swimming area while Loop F supplies the most privacy. Work on renovating one of the two shower facilities was finished during the 2012 camping season. At 3.4 miles, the Cedar Brook Trail is the longest of five hiking routes within Higley Flow’s boundaries. On the other end of the spectrum, the Beaver Pond Trail leaves from the nature center on Kelly Road, and features interpretive signs that describe the six different habitats within the park."
