  • Green Lakes State Park
    The intricate course layout of Green Lakes State Park gives golfing aficionados a glimpse into the early career of legendary course designer Robert Trent Jones, architect of such destinations as Spyglass Hill and the 468-hole Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Features that would become his signature are abundant on the 6,212-yard loop, including deep bunkers, immaculate fairways with elevation changes, slick greens, and very few flat lies that might otherwise tempt golfers to tamper with their scorecard results. The golf club also incorporates a clubhouse, practice areas, a pro shop, a restaurant, and locker rooms with showers.Course at a Glance:

  • Fuzzy Guppies
    Located in the Waterloo Harbor Campground right on the Seneca River, Fuzzy Guppies makes meandering the river's locks and creeks easy. Those who want to explore a bit further can rent kayaks, canoes, and other equipment to investigate the nearby Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake; Fuzzy Guppies can deliver the watercraft. In addition to renting vessels, Fuzzy Guppies also gives lessons and oversees the Human Waterball. The Waterball gives people the chance to float and run on the water in a ball exactly like a hamster would, if a hamster could pay the rental fee.

  • Westlake Watersports
    Floating slides, trampolines, and wobbling islands transform the waters of Westlake into Westlake Willy Waterpark, where guests of all ages find a cool and fun respite from the summer sun. As visitors approach the beach, eyes move to a staircase that ascends to a platform 25 feet above the water, from which patrons plummet onto a gigantic blob, using their landing impact to launch a friend off of the other end of the pillowy inflatable in a mutually symbiotic relationship equalled only by teeter-tottering during a monsoon. Muscles weary from climbing the 15-foot iceberg slide can rest at the beach, where picnic tables, umbrellas, and grills facilitate picnics for those who brought their own snacks or purchased them at the lodge. Waverunners, pontoons, and fishing boats are available for rent, and the Waterpark sits near camping grounds for those hoping to enjoy a weekend in nature or prove, once and for all, that it is possible to start a bonfire without a flamethrower.

  • Shanti Retreat
    Yogis value peace of mind and calmness of spirit, but those things can be hard to achieve amid the bustle of daily life. Wendy and Darin, 20-year veteran yogis themselves, created Shanti Retreat as a place where fellow practitioners can break out of their routines and enjoy a little relaxation with their practice. The retreat itself sits on 11 acres of Wolfe Island's shoreline, with stunning views of the St. Lawrence River. The hosting duo and their staff lead yoga classes throughout the day, as well as provide and maintain an inn and water-front cabins. Come breakfast, dinner, and lunch, they prepare delicious vegetarian meals for guests. Guests need not leave the idyllic confines of the retreat to satisfy any need; perhaps this is why The Kingstonist described Shanti as "Wolfe Island's best kept secret."

  • Webster Aquatic Center
    Even in the chilliest days of winter, the pool inside Webster Aquatic Center remains a pleasant 81-82 degrees. Since its grand opening in 2002, the center?which is owned and managed by the Webster Central School District?has provided the community with a destination for aquatic recreation, instruction, and competition throughout the school year. Inside the spacious building, the Olympic-sized pool hosts swimming and scuba lessons, water polo matches, and more. A total of 10,000 square feet of deck space surrounds the water, and an ample amount of balcony seating allows guests to watch the activities or continue their ill-conceived vigil for the Loch Ness Monster. Actual pool aside, Webster Aquatic Center boasts features including a high-tech timing system, diving boards, and short- and long-course lap lanes.
