A real gem

We are SO lucky to have this park in our village! It is well maintained, the lake is beautiful and there are great hiking and mountain biking trails.

Green Lakes has nice trails throughout the park along with a very informative series of educational signs around the lakes explaining their geologic features and what makes them green. The beach is well-maintained with plenty of room for sunbathing. But - there seems to be an abundance of ticks - so take precautions.

This is a great place to go for an easy hike. The Lakes here are amazing. The are unique, and well worth a visit. They have a great nature center, and great nature programs to attend. I wish it were closer to where I live.

This State Park is a great "hide away" spot just outside of Syracuse. Great place for a picnic with family or friends, nice hiking trails, swimming, sand beach, area for kids to play. Something for everyone...some sun and shade.

We stayed in Cabin 8 the first weekend of the season and were lucky to be the first to occupy the newly renovated cabin. We did learn that all the cabins have been renovated as well. Our cabin was absolutely incredible. The wood work was amazing. The detail and meticulous work was well noted. We had a rainy weekend and... More

This is the one place I always go back to. It's a nice lake to swim in, kids love it, but my favorite thing to do is walk. There are two lakes to walk around. Green Lake and Round Lake. The scenery is spectacular. I think green lake is prettier with it's deep green blue crystal clear water, but round... More

What can I say? We don't have lakes like this in Missouri! What a beautiful park. There is swimming and trails and picnicking. You could easily spend the whole day or week there! It was not too crowded in October when we went. We came in from the South Entrance and the trees were so pretty decked out in fall.... More

Don't go there because it can get crowded when the crowds descend!!!!! GREEN LAKES STATE PARK is SO beautiful. It was overcrowded today (Palm Sunday) because like the girl in the office said: it is the first nice day of the year!!!!! The trail around the lake is very easy, but I am sure there are other trails that are... More

This place is always busy. It is mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. It is always busy. Great Nature trails. Note this is not rugged hiking They are all well maintained trails around two lakes. There are more rugged trails off the back side of round lake (the second lake). Note grab a map if you will venture beyond the two lakes.... More
