Sandy Creek State Forest

Sandy Creek State Forest sits on 538 acres of reforested land on the edge of the Tug Hill Plateau in Northern Oswego County. Its remote setting and lack of designated recreation trails offer habitat for a wide variety of wildlife for hunting and observing. Turkey, ruffed grouse and a wide variety of song birds and raptors are common, along with deer, weasel, fox, coyote, muskrat and squirrels.

Deer Creek is a pristine stream that flows for almost a mile through this state forest, providing seasonal trout and steelhead fishing as it makes its way to Lake Ontario.
