Robert G. Wehle State Park is the region's newest park. The former estate of Mr. Wehle, the park boasts 1,100 acres and over 17,000 ft of spectacular Lake Ontario shoreline. Among the facilities immediately available to the public is the residential compound featuring the main house, guest quarters, the "studio" and formal gardens. Extremely private, the area can accommodate up to 8 people. Rental arrangements can be made through Reserve America. Also available are over 10 miles of hiking/mountain biking trails, tennis court, picnicking and cross-country skiing. Hunting is allowed in designated areas during the season.

The main cottage features a sun porch, two spacious bedrooms (with private baths), living room (with gorgeous fireplace) and a fully applianced kitchen and laundry room. The guest cottage features two spacious bedrooms (with private baths), bay windows and a kitchenette with sink, microwave and small refrigerator. The third building is a former artist's studio and serves as a charming recreation room with a foosball table. Outside, the compound offers a tennis court and over a thousand acres of undeveloped parkland. Renters can enjoy footpaths along Lake Ontario.
