Point Rock is a hamlet in the northeastern corner of the town of Lee in Oneida County, New York, United States. It only consists of a few houses and a closed bar now.

Point Rock was named for a point in a rock where point Rock Creek and Fish Creek meet. People settled in Point Rock because of the creek, the forests, and the good land for raising cattle. There were salmon and trout in the creeks. Early settlers shipped them to Fort Stanwix, White's Town, and Fort Schuyler. By 1870 there was a post office, store, tavern, and some homes in Point Rock. In the late 19th century or early 20th century the first Methodist church was built in Point Rock.[1]
