You can fall asleep to the sound of the gentle waves washing ashore.
I live at the New Jersey Shore and can't camp near the beach!
When you are growing up you do not appreciate what you have until it is gone. My husband and I no matter where we live will always be New Yorkers.""Southwick Beach State Park, Henderson NY, Though I spent the first 26 years of my life in a small town just south of Syracuse, I did not discover this 'gem' on Lake Ontario until two years ago.My parents both graduated from SUNY Oswego and are avid campers and have never heard of it.We really enjoyed the Pacific NW and it is all that it says it is.But we really missed our families and we have two camps on Seneca Lake and in the Adirondacks that we could not visit.As for the work industry for us we had no problem finding work. After all we came home to be closer to family and we are still 10 hours away.
We are in the process of trying to save up enough money so we can move back to Upstate NY and maybe relocate to the Ithaca area. I want my daughters to experience the cold crisp winters, the musty dirt smell of spring, the wonderful warm non humid summer days, the cold crisp smell of Fall, and the first snow fall of the season.I was looking for a place to camp on the way to Canada and ventured to this beautiful state park because I spotted it on a map.I now come to Southwick Beach to camp on the beautiful beach (they have 16 or so beach sites that are placed just beyond the dune grass).We apologize for the delay in getting your submittals published.

I was born and raised in the United Kingdom and I have only been here for 5 1/2 years, and I can honestly say this has to be "Gods Country" where else can you find four defined seasons, animals in all shapes and sizes not to mention the birds!
