Lake Erie State Park is a 355-acre (1.44 km2) state park[2] located in the Town of Portland in Chautauqua County, New York, United States, northeast of the village of Brocton. Its major attraction is its Lake Erie beach, in addition to its campsites and other recreational facilities.

Park facilities[edit]

The park includes facilities and trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, birdwatching, fishing, boating and camping at one of its 97 campsites or 10 cabins. Although the beach is a major attraction, as of 2015 swimming is not permitted.[4] An 18-hole disc golf course named "Shipwreck Bluff DGC" was constructed at the park in 2015.[5] The park sells discs and clothing related to the course.
