Wilson-Tuscarora State Park is a well-preserved natural area for many varieties of plants and wildlife, encompassing 476 acres of mature woods, open meadows and marshland. Tuscarora Bay, divided from Lake Ontario by a strip of land called The Island, has a boat launch and emergency storm shelter docks. The park's four-mile nature trail is also used for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Fishing for many varieties of pan fish and game fish, from boats or from shore, is extremely popular. Picnickers can enjoy scenic views of the lake while children play in the playground.
The park offers a variety of boating options, including canoeing and kayaking. There is also a boat launch available for those who wish to bring their own boats. Fishing is allowed in the designated areas with proper permits. The park's location on Lake Ontario provides opportunities for sailing and motorboating as well.
Enjoy fishing on Lake Ontario's shoreline, offering species like bass, walleye and salmon. A boat launch is available too.

Wilson-Tuscarora State Park offers picnic tables and pavilions, perfect for family gatherings or a quiet lunch in nature.
Cycling is permitted on the park's roadways, but caution must be exercised due to traffic. Off-road biking isn't allowed.

The terrain can vary from flat asphalt roads to more challenging hilly sections; always wear a helmet for safety.

Remember that cyclists share these routes with pedestrians and vehicles so remain alert at all times.

There are no designated bike trails in this area, hence it may not suit those seeking off-road adventures or mountain biking experiences.

Ensure you have adequate water supplies as there aren't many facilities along the cycling route within the park grounds.

Biking after dark is discouraged because of reduced visibility and increased risk factors involved.

Always follow local regulations regarding bicycle use - respect nature by sticking only to permissible areas while riding your bikes.
The park offers a variety of birding opportunities with its diverse habitats attracting numerous species. Birdwatchers can explore the woodland, wetland and lake areas for sightings of waterfowl, songbirds and raptors. The four-mile nature trail is ideal for spotting birds in their natural environment.
