Selkirk Shores State Park, NY

Selkirk Shores SP is located on the shore of Lake Ontario, about three miles west of Pulaski NY. There are four camping loops with a total of 148 sites; about half of them share 20-amp electrical hookups.

Plenty of space in early June. We were told to go pick a site and come back to register. It turns out we had picked a "prime" site at a higher cost; when I pointed out that the map we were given made no mention of "prime" sites, I was told to look at the rate sheet. But even that wouldn't have helped, for nowhere were the sites identified as to which ones were "prime". We ended up on site 90, a non-prime site.

Date of visit: Jun 2009

We found that sites were really crowded in here, much closer than usual for a state park. Not a problem at the time of our visit, since there weren't many campers there, but on a busy summer weekend, you and your neighbors would be VERY close. Here are sites 125-142 in the D loop.

Sites 134-138 in the D loop.

sesh08
This is the row of prime sites in the C loop. Behind them, to the right, is the bluff overlooking Lake Ontario.

sesh12
Sites 49-61 in the B loop.

sesh09
Bathhouses are modern, clean and offer hot showers.

sesh03
Near loops C and D is the campstore (closed at the time of our visit).

sesh10
If you prefer a little more comfort in the way of accommodations, there are 24 cabins available for rent. They sleep from 4 to 8 people.

sesh13
A paved bike/hike path leads from the campground down to the beach.

sesh15
Atop the bluff behind the trees is the campground. The beach itself is rather rocky - no sand.
