Park description

Selkirk Shores State Park features a swimming beach on Lake Ontario, hiking trails, campsites and cabins.[4] The park is associated with the nearby Pine Grove Boat Launch, which provides access for small boats to the lower Salmon River.[5]

A "Bird Conservation Area" at the park protects breeding habitat for several regionally-threatened bird species, including pied-billed grebes, American bitterns, least bitterns, and black terns.[6]
