Woodlawn Beach State Park is located on the eastern-most terminus of Lake Erie. Within the Buffalo metropolitan area, the park offers a beautiful, one-mile long natural sand beach with lovely panoramic views and spectacular sunsets on the lake. Woodlawn Beach supports a diversity of wildlife habitats including one of the finest freshwater sand dune areas remaining on Lake Erie. Recreational opportunities are plentiful and include picnicking, beach volleyball, nature trails and a playground on the beach.
A new nature center/bathhouse complex, with exhibits that highlight the park's natural history, is connected to the beach by an interpretive nature boardwalk through wooded wetlands. A unique special events space is available for parties and other gatherings; please call the park office for further information.
