This area is a very popular
picnic and camping area. This park has been open since 1957.
The picnic area there can accommodate well over 100 picnickers and
overnight camping is permitted in the area. The entire area
has been reforested in stages over the years and is now a very scenic
setting. There are two very nice bridges over the creek to
the picnic area and various promotional brochures for the area indicate
that trout abound in the stream.
The area is dedicated to the memory of Theodore Woolschlager.
He is noted as the first Lewis County forester and is considered
responsible for the planning of the picnic area.
The Fish Creek flows into the Black River just downstream from
Lyons Falls. The Black River joins Lake Ontario just west
of Watertown in Dexter, New York.
