Camping
Golden Hill State Park - We absolutely love it here, there's a cool lighthouse you can tour.  There is a room to rent in the lighthouse, but it books up fast.  This park is right on Lake Ontario and we just love it.  Lots of trails and quiet.  For the campgrounds, you have to reserve through "Reserve America", but if you call the park, they can share information about sites and activities.

Wildwood Lake - This is more of a family campground, with a store, activities and seasonal camping.  New owners are working to upgrade it, it kind of had a bad rep for a while, but I drove through it last summer and the kids are dying to stay there, even though its only about 10 miles from our house...

Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge - I take this for granted, but we have a extensive refuge, literally in our back yard.  In fact I have traumatic memories of sitting in the back of our mom's Dodge Omni for hours going 3 mph through "The Swamps", choking on second hand smoke, desparately trying to spot blue herons, (which were rare back then) so we could go home.
Sunset Drive In - On route 31 in the village of Middleport, one of the last remaining drive in thee-aye-turs in the country!  Three screens!
