Stony Brook State Park features a rugged gorge in the rolling hills of Western New York. You can enjoy the park's rich scenery while camping, picnicking, swimming or hiking.

The North Entrance for day use visitors features a picnic area with tables, grills, restrooms, playground, natural stream-fed pool, and entrance to the hiking trails. The park offers a variety of play fields that include Playgrounds, Tennis Court, Baseball Field, Volleyball Court, and Basketball.

During the winter season, most areas of the park are closed to the public including the South Entrance, playgrounds, playfields, and all hiking trails. These areas remain closed until the following spring after cleanup and safety inspections are complete. The North Entrance is open year round and visitors may enjoy walking through the picnic area.

88 campsites, 1 group campsite, and 8 rustic cabins are scattered in the woodlands above the gorge in the South Entrance to the park. The campground does not offer electric or water on campsites or in the cabins, but there are comfort stations in each loop and a dump station.

Stony Brook State Park is located near Dansville, Hornell

The park offers 2 rentable picnic shelters that are perfect for hosting a family reunion, birthday party, graduation, or BBQ. The Clara Barton Shelter is located at the North Entrance in the center of the picnic area. The Shawmut Shelter is located at the South Entrance off the main Campground parking lot.
Hikers can choose among 3 hiking trails which are all about 1 mile long with quite a bit of stairs making them moderately difficult. The park's beautiful gorge trail begins at our stream-fed pool in the North Entrance and passes by 3 major waterfalls. We recommend the Gorge Trail as the easiest and most scenic. The Rim Trails climb the towering cliffs through the woodlands that overlook waterfalls and fascinating rock formations. Due to the nature of our trails they are not accessible to wheelchairs, medical walkers, or strollers.
