Report: i stopped for gas and asked for directions from state park police officer rick e.p. schlenker and what i got was a full fledged tour for me, my two boys and even my dog. patrolman schlenker took us on a very fun, exciting,informative and educational ride in his all terrain truck all through the woodlawn beach areas and really opened my eyes as to what a great place it is. one of western ny's best kept secrets. i remember when it was just a deserted beach that you could barely get to and when you did get there you wondered why. rick remembers those days too. well times have changed. they have really made this beach and the surrounding lands something to see and i've learned that they're going ahead to make even more improvements. this is a fine example of what waterfront access should be. as for officer schlenker who goes beyond the call of duty and just seems to be a guy that loves life and sharing that feeling with others... on behalf of myself and my two sons, corey and zak and even my dog sammy...we salute you. thanks for the adventure ride. the kids loved it. we'll see you at the beach benifit on saturday 9/

Report: This beach looked nice at first. Once I ventured past the pretty combed sand even just a few feet I saw countless dead fish and seagulls. Is this normal? I decided not to swim in case the water was contaminated.
