Whetstone Gulf State Park

website

Whetstone Gulf State Park is built in and around a three-mile-long gorge cut into the eastern edge of the Tug Hill Plateau. The gorge is one of the most spectacular scenic vistas east of the Rocky Mountains. The park has 56 wooded campsites some of which are electric, a scenic picnic area along Whetstone Creek, a man-made swimming area and trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, one of which circles the gorge. Above the gorge is Whetstone Reservoir, stocked with tiger muskie and large-mouth bass for fishermen, and popular for canoeing.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 8 Great Experience by M&D Niles
This park was a great find. The hike was only 3 miles but with the changes in elevation it was about 3 hours long. We will be back to do that hike again, and maybe check out other parts of the park as well.
June 30 Little known secret
This is a little gem of a park. Enjoyed hiking and visiting here very much. There is a nice swimming and picnic area as well as a great 3 mile hike around the gorge with beautiful views. Highly recommend!
