Geocache Challenge 2018

This park derived its name from a battle which took place on a nearby island on the Oswego River in the mid-1700s. In 1916 most of the land owned by F. A. Emerick was deeded to the state. Battle Island officially became a state park in 1938 when the remaining land was turned over. The popular course near Fulton lies adjacent to the Oswego River and offers golfers magnificent views from a number of its fairways and greens. The 18-hole Battle Island State Park Golf Course is a challenging one for the "budding professional" and amateur player. The park also is used in winter for cross-country skiing.

Household pets only during winter months when golf course is closed; must be caged or on a leash not more than 6 feet.
