Long Point, which juts peninsula-like into Lake Chautauqua, is one of the moraines left long ago by a retreating glacier. The park and marina comprise a day-use area with thickly-wooded areas of beech, maple, spruce, poplar and oak. The park's boat launch is the most modern on Lake Chautauqua, which, at 1,308 feet above sea level, is one of the highest navigable bodies of water in North America. The lake has a plentiful supply of bass, perch, pike and other types of fish, but fishermen come to Chautauqua to fish for muskellunge. Muskellunge, or muskie, are native to the lake, noted for their size--often more than 30 inches long (in fact they must be at least 40" to keep) -- and their "fight." In winter, visitors can cross-country ski, snowmobile or fish.

There is an entry fee you the park. there are a lot of tails of the main one which is a plus. They look to be great for biking. Nothing too exciting but there don't appear to be many hiking trails in this area.

A fun small trail to take your family on for any type of activity. Great scenic views, only downside is a small entry fee.

This place is beautiful. Different trails and very pretty sights of Chautauqua Lake. Also great location for a good sunset! And bonus is they have a park for kids.

Great place to bike and hike with some single track. Not very challenging so quite easy for all age groups. Several place to picnic and grill.

Very nice park. Walked out to the point (by the water) then around some of the other trails (behind the parking lot). Very wide trails. Followed the map we got where we came in. Otherwise not well marked. Went in December. It was pretty quite.
Very nice.

I have only been on the trails here in the winter. It is a small but popular beach in the summertime for local people. I have Nordic skied on the rail with friends, advanced beginner level, a couple steep downslopes. Then you can walk out on the frozen Chautauqua Lake, conditions permitting. I do not remember seeing any open facilities in the winter time.

Nice park, have been fishing there a lot, but this is the first time hiking. Nice walk, and wide trails, but not well labeled. Lots of intersections, and the two trails in this app were not easy to follow just by walking around. It was still an enjoyable time.
