Gorton Lake State Forest

  • Gorton Lake Rd., North Brookfield, NY 13418
The 500-acre Gorton Lake State Forest is open to passive recreational pursuits such as hunting, informal hiking or other informal uses that require no designated facilities. There are conifer plantations occupying former agriculture or pasture lands, rolling hills of native hardwood forests and stream courses flowing down to the valleys below. The state forest was created for the purpose of reforestation, wildlife management, timber production, recreation and watershed protection.
