Pixley Falls State Park is a 375-acre (1.52 km2) New York state park located in the town of Boonville in Oneida County, New York, USA. The park is located on New York State Route 46 and is 18 miles (29 km) north of Rome and six miles (9.7 km) miles southwest of Boonville, near the community of Hurlbutville.

Facilities[edit]

Open all year, the park gets its name from a 50-foot (15 m) waterfall, accessible via a short hiking trail. The park offers picnicking, a nature trail, hiking, fishing, seasonal hunting, and cross country skiing. The park has steep wooded hills, a mountain trout stream, and a trail that runs along the ruins of the 19th-century Black River Canal.[4]

The park became a day-use park in 2010, at which time camping was no longer permitted.[5]
