TUCKAHOE STATE PARK
Tuckahoe Creek, a quiet country stream bordered for most of its length by wooded marshlands, runs through the length of the park. A 60-acre lake offers boating and fishing. The park offers 20 miles of scenic hiking, biking and equestrian trails, flat water canoeing, hunting, picnicking, as well as a recycled tire playground for children. The park offers activities and special events on a seasonal basis. Activities include day camps, Scales & Tales Program, and canoe trips.
Four camper cabins are available for rent through the statewide reservation system. Each cabin sleeps four and is equipped with ceiling fan, electricity, air conditioning, grill, fire ring and table.
The park offers a family camping area with 51 sites, 33 with electric hookups, and a central bathhouse. The park also offers a youth group camping area with four sites, each site accommodating up to 30 people. A central bathhouse with showers and toilet facilities are available. Pets are allowed in the campground but must remain on a leash at all times.
The park has a 60-acre lake with fishing and boating opportunities on 20 acres of open water. The remaining acres are flooded woodland. A launch ramp is available for boaters. Gasoline motor use is prohibited. Canoeing at Tuckahoe is a popular activity on both the lake and the creek because of the park's abundant wildlife. It is common for visitors to enjoy watching bald eagles, ospreys and great blue herons. Beavers and muskrats have surprised visitors by swimming past their canoes. Tuckahoe is full of pockets of secluded beauty, some only accessible by canoe. Canoes, kayaks and paddle boats can be rented for use on the lake above the dam for a daily fee (April- October). Check with park personnel for current fees for canoe rentals and park guided trips.
