Battle Island State Park
Description - Battle Island State Park is a popular golf course located adjacent to the Oswego River near Fulton. Cross-country skiers use the grounds during winter.

Attractions - On a nearby island on the Oswego River, a mid-1700's battle took place. The park derives its name from that event. The state of New York acquired the parcel in 1916 from F.A. Emerick. In 1938 the parcel became a state park. Today the property serves as a popular warm weather spot for duffers and a popular cold weather spot for cross-country skiers.
