Nestled above the shore overlooking Seneca Lake, this park derived its name from the amazing lake view visible from the golf course. The 9-hole course can be played twice from different tees for an 18-hole round. There is also an attractive clubhouse/ restaurant. The park has shaded picnic areas and food is available at the snack bar. Bow hunting is allowed in season, call for details.
