Whitaker Park

One of Lewis County’s best views of the
Black River Valley!


Whitaker Park, one of the region’s hidden jewels, offers its visitors one of Lewis County’s best views of the Black River Valley and the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. Nestled on the eastern slope of the Tug Hill Plateau, wooded trails direct the park-goer to overlooks of pristine waterfalls characteristic of the area’s gorges and unique geology. 

Open Mother's Day weekend till Columbus Day

Plenty things to do while you are here!

A children’s creative play area adds to the rural overnight camping facilities at the Park. Day use visitors, as well as overnighters, typically make use of the Park’s ballfields, pavilions, picnic and play areas. The small pavilion is reserved for local residents first. Non-residents cannot reserve the small pavilion more than 3 weeks in advance.

Best places to hike and trek in the world.
