It was raining pretty good when we hiked around on Sunday. I wasn't expecting much for a short trail but honestly the old tent sites, buildings, and pool were quite interesting. There was a ton of graffiti so if you bring little kids be aware it is not all appropriate. It goes right up to the lake - plenty of places to explore around. If it is muddy be careful the hills can get a little slippery. It was different than any other hike I have done so it was a nice change.

Eerie abandoned girl scout camp on the shores of Lake Ontario. Cool buildings to explore in and an overlook to a swamp area. Easy hiking

Great woodsy walk. Tons of old buildings and leantoos litter the area. The adjacent old overgrown Apple Farm is nice. Though having a map is suggested. You can get to the beach, from where the flagpole is. But it's littered with downed trees.

There is a more moderate difficult trail, with lots of ups and downs off the utility trail, from the kayak launch parking area.

The place as a whole has a pretty good amount of foot traffic.

We absolutely love this trail network. There are several main trails that take you around and through the old scout camp. Several trails lead you to the Lake Ontario shoreline. You'll also come upon many abandoned campsites and buildings to explore. You can also take branch off onto many secondary trails that were created by scouts from years gone by.
