Greetings to our Canadian friends and everyone in the North Country. By popular demand, I present you with the information you have been searching for.
Here’s the beta for the Plattsburgh beach which is purported to be the largest freshwater sand beach in the USA:
Cumberland Bay State Park
Beach: June 25 – September 4 2012
Day Use 8am – 10pm
$7 per Car – $5 after 4pm
Plattsburgh City Beach
Day Use 11am – 7pm
$5 US/CAN per car
Town/City Residents Free
Open June 16 through September 3, 2012
These are really part of the same beach, one side operated by NY State and the other by the City of Plattsburgh. If I had to pick, I’d go for Cumberland Bay, only so I can use my Empire Pass. These are minutes from both downtown Plattsburgh and the Upper Cornelia commercial district.
Best place for lodging close to these beaches is in Plattsburgh. Almost everything is located around Exit 37 off the Northway. I know every place, in some cases too well. They’re mostly branded properties, I’d recommend using that as your first guide to quality. Nuff said.
