Southwick Beach Professional Review and Guide
"The name says it all at Southwick Beach State Park. Together with the bordering 3,421-acre Lakeview Wildlife Management Area, Southwick Beach is part of the largest natural freshwater barrier beach in the state. Campsites are organized into three groups: one just inside the entrance booth, another right on Lake Ontario, and the largest cluster on the northern edge of the park. Site 47 is handicapped accessible. Because they’re directly on the beachfront, sites 2–30 are in particularly high demand. Three trails in the north part of the park add up to 2.1 miles of hiking; the Big Beech Trail is handicapped accessible. Deer hunting (in season) is allowed in the southern portion of the park and within the Lakeview Area. Listen for American bullfrogs and watch for black terns swooping by overhead. Or head to the observation tower on Montario Point Road to get an even better view of the dunes and their residents."
