Golden Hill State Park was acquired by New York State in 1962. The Thirty Mile Lighthouse, decommissioned by the U.S. Coast Guard in 1958, is part of the park and is available for rental. This landmark has a rich history which can be enjoyed by visitors of the park, through the Friends of Thirty Mile Point Lighthouse. The lighthouse originally provided keepers and assistant keepers family quarters. Golden Hill State Park offers camping, fishing, boating, shoreline hiking, picnicking, nature walks and walking tours of the lighthouse site. Summer events at the park are numerous. Winter activities are also available, including snowshoeing and five miles of snowmobile trails that run through the park.
At the Lighthouse Cottage, renters are provided with a private picnic area with a barbecue grill and picnic table. This vacation rental offers a private entrance, kitchen with refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, coffee maker, cooking utensils, silverware and dishes, living room with electric fireplace for a cozy feeling, full bath with an old fashioned bathtub, three bedrooms with queen size beds and pillows and a view of Lake Ontario that is stunning.
