Take the Virtual Tour! - HIGLEY FLOW STATE PARK

Higley Flow State Park is nestled among the Adirondack foothills on the picturesque Raquette River. Spacious campsites, separated from neighbors by pine trees, abound in the park. The terrain is hilly and heavily-wooded, and there is a sandy beach on the reservoir of the Raquette River. The scenic river is ideal for canoeing and fishing. The Beaver Pond Nature Trail has interpretive signs that describe the six distinct habitats through which the trail passes. Hiking trails double as cross-country ski trails in winter, when snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ice fishing are also allowed.


Higley Flow State Park is located in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains, on the Raquette River.


Activities include boating, fishing, hiking, hunting, camping, and picnicking; and winter ice fishing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.


The park has a beach, boat launch sites, a fully accessible picnic area with pavilions, tables, and a playground, and a nature trail. Well-spaced, handicapped-accessible campsites have blacktop driveways, picnic tables, and fireplaces, and campgrounds have dumping stations and showers. There is 24-hour security at the park.

Alerts and Important Information
Each year the campground makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice. See HERE for all current swimming closures!
