Selkirk Shores State Park is a 980-acre (4.0 km2) state park located in the Town of Richland in Oswego County, New York. The park is located on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario.

Park description[edit]

Selkirk Shores State Park features a swimming beach on Lake Ontario, hiking trails, campsites and cabins.[1][4] The park is associated with the nearby Pine Grove Boat Launch, which provides access for small boats to the lower Salmon River.[1]

A "Bird Conservation Area" at the park protects breeding habitat for several regionally-threatened bird species, including pied-billed grebes, American bitterns, least bitterns, and black terns.[5]
