Sylvan-Verona Beach Resort Area is located on the Eastern side of Oneida Lake. Get a taste for what this park has to offer from its sandy beaches to its amusement park! Sylvan-Verona Beach accommodates all ages, so everyone can find something to do.
A village in Oneida County, Sylvan Beach is snuggled away in upstate New York’s vast lands of greenery. Founded in about 1840, the small town makes the use of trains and ferries as public transportation. Adjacent to the Erie Canal and located on the east shore of Oneida Lake, the beach was originally used as a shipping port. That has since changed from 1820 onwards, and the beach is used more for recreational purposes.
Historical Places: Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009, Sylvan Beach Union Chapel was originally opened on July 3, 1887. It is an interdenominational church. Many worship services have been held there since its opening.
*fun fact: the film “The Sterile Cuckoo” features the Sylvan Beach Union Chapel
