This second playground is located on the other side of Rt 89 and for campers in campsites 105-1013. We really enjoyed this playground as the equipment is well spaced and there is a good variety for various age levels. The off centered teeter totter makes for the perfect parent-child activity and the rock wall with repelling rope is challenging and unique. Most of the playground is wooden with some older plastic structures mixed in. There are typical swings here and a tire swing.
The beach is open from 6/20 to 9/7, daily 10am – 6pm. This is a small beach with a lifeguard on duty. The beach is located close to the Pirate Ship playground and bath house. Call ahead to ensure the beach is open.
Cayuga Lake State Park is a great spot to camp no matter what your style. There are cabins with electricity as well as some spacious tent sites. You can also hook up a camper here. Sites have a fire pit and picnic table. Our Cabin (Cabin 7) had a full stove and fridge as well as 4 separate beds. The bath houses have showers and are well maintained. There is camping on two sides of the road at this park. There are camper hookups, tent sites and cabins with electricity on the lakeside, nearest the pirate ship playground. Tent sites without electricity can be found on the opposite side of the road. Another playground can be found here as well. It is recommended you go early or later in the season to avoid the crowds.
