Verona Beach State Park, located on the eastern shore of Oneida Lake, is a picnicker's and camper's delight. Shaded picnic areas and the campground are adjacent to the beach with an excellent view of the water. The lake, Black Creek, cattail marshes, and bottomland hardwood swamps give Verona Beach one of the most diverse aquatic habitats in the Central Region, and well worth a hike on the "Woods and Wetland" nature trail. Our 13 miles of hiking trails are open year round. The winter season hosts snowmobilers, cross-country skiers and ice fishermen. The eastern portion of the park is open for hunting deer, small game, and waterfowl, in season.
Verona Beach has 5 pavilions and a Community Room. Click 'Fees and Rates' on the righthand side for more information. Click on the Virtual Tour tab at the top right corner of the page to view photos of our reservable pavilions. Call the Park Office for further pavilion details and their location in proximity to amenities. Check with ReserveAmerica to view availability and book your event.
