Thompson´s Lake State Park, nestled in the mountains just four miles from the Helderberg Escarpment, is a popular camping ground and recreation area. In addition to 140 wooded campsites, the park comprises a sandy beach, mixed hardwood and conifer forests, limestone outcroppings and open fields. Recreational opportunities include a volleyball court, horseshoe pits, a playing field, swingsets, carry-in boat access, rental row boats, fishing areas, and nature trails. Interpretive and recreational programs are offered for campers throughout the summer. During the winter, visitors can cross-country ski and ice fish.The Emma Treadwell Thacher Center is located on Thompson´s Lake next to the campground and is accessible to campers. The center opened in July 2001 and offers exhibits, interactive displays, trails for hiking and skiing, and educational programs. See the nature center page for more information. - Beach - Boat Launch Sites - Boat Rentals - Campsites - Dumping Station(s) - Empire Passport Accepted - Fishing - Hiking - Ice Fishing - Nature Trail - Picnic Tables - Playground - Playing Field(s) - Recreation Programs - Showers - Tent/Trailer Sites - X-Country Skiing
