Within the rolling hardwood forests of Sandisfield State Forest are six lakes, ranging in size from 10 to 60 acres. York Lake is a popular day use area with a 300 foot sandy beach, a picnic area and a boat launch ramp.
All of the lakes are stocked with trout and are accessible to non-motorized boats. Walking and hiking trails, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiles are seasonal activities. Hunters are also welcome (in season).
