Damage assessment and clean-up at the park is expected to take weeks. To assist in the greater emergency response Lodi Point State Park is actively serving as a staging area.
Nearby Keuka Lake, Watkins Glen, Seneca Lake state parks are open and convenient alternate options. All visitors are encouraged to be extra vigilant and careful of possible storm debris still in the lake across many locations.
