Visitors, please note: As of August 20, swimming at Verona Beach is temporarily closed. Please contact the park office for a status update before your visit.
As part of a park improvement project, the bathhouse and attached parking lot are currently under under construction. The bathhouse will be closed at the beginning of the season and parking will be limited. The beach will be open in small sections for daily use.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. During this time, Delta Lake and Green Lakes State Park swimming areas may be utilized during the week; your valid camping permit will allow free entrance.
UPDATE (8/1/14): The bathhouse is nearly complete and is OPEN for use as is the parking lot. Nearby picnic shelters will be under construction for the remainder of the season.
Verona Beach State Park, located on the eastern shore of Oneida Lake, is a picnicker's and camper's delight. Shaded picnic areas and the campground are adjacent to the beach with an excellent view of the water. The lake, Black Creek, cattail marshes, and bottomland hardwood swamps give Verona Beach one of the most diverse aquatic habitats in the Central Region, and well worth a hike on the "Woods and Wetland" nature trail. The winter season hosts snowmobilers, cross-country skiers and ice fishermen. The eastern portion of the park is open for hunting deer, small game, and waterfowl, in season.
Hunting - DEC Permit Only
