Higley Flow State Park

Olympic Byway, State Rt. 56, near South Colton in St. Lawrence County

Located on Route 56 between Tupper Lake and Cranberry Lake, Higley Flow State Park features heavily-wooded campsites, a sandy beach on the Raquette River, and the Beaver Pond Nature Trail.

Higley Flow State Park is nestled among the Adirondack foothills on the picturesque Raquette River. Spacious campsites, separated from neighbors by pine trees, abound in the park. The terrain is hilly and heavily-wooded and there is a sandy beach on the reservoir of the Raquette River. The scenic river is ideal for canoeing and fishing. The Beaver Pond Nature Trail has interpretive signs that describe the six distinct habitats through which the trail passes. Hiking trails double as cross-country ski trails in winter, when snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing are also allowed.
