|Because 50% of the town is state land, most facilities are available to everyone. Lakes and rivers have access areas for small boats and canoes. Mountain trails are available for hiking, fishing and hunting. Our scenic roads provide excellent bicycling, walking and touring opportunities. Daily walks can be safely made at any time of day and you don't have to breathe exhaust. Our mountains average about 2500 feet, making the view from the top accessible to almost everyone. Outdoor activities are great as long as you make a deal with the bugs during the spring.
The town recreation field has a basketball court, softball field, playgrounds, picnic tables with grills, a bandstand and a covered pavilion. Stony Creek is dammed up, creating a great old time "swimming hole." Summer band concerts in the park provide music for every taste, with an opportunity for cookout with family and friends. Some of the country's best fall foliage is found in the Adirondacks and Stony Creek takes a back seat to no one. The crisp air and falling leaves of fall almost get you looking forward to the coming winter. Warren County provides a system of groomed snowmobile trails. Ice fishing, sledding, skiing and cross-country skiing are also enjoyed.

|Big Fez & the Surfmatics - Music in the Park
Rain or Shine
Bring a Lawn Chair.
Big Fez and the Surfmatics are a four-man group performing classic surf and beach music from the early 1960's. While all four members are journeymen musicians who have individually developed their craft through rock, country, bluegrass, and Celtic music, it is the music of their youth, the “music of the surf”, that has brought them together to form this outstanding combo. Big Fez and the Surfmatics' repertoire includes the great instrumental hits of the surf era, including songs by such greats as The Ventures, Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, The Trashmen, The Chantays, The Surfaris, and Duane Eddy. Big Fez also performs many of the great vocal hits of the surf era as well, performing songs by The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, The Challengers, The Rivieras, and many more.
