Eel Weir State Park is located on the Oswegatchie River two miles from Black Lake. Both waterways are known for excellent bass fishing and are ideal for canoes or rowboats. As it is small and secluded, the park is a perfect place to get away from it all. Thirty-eight campsites are available, as are a picnic area and pavilion.

Pavilion Information
Eel Weir has one pavilion. The day use price is $75 and can accommodate up to 70 people. Check availability at
