Nearby the Wilson Hill Island, Croil Islands, and Long Sault Islands offer some excellent Smallmouth fishing. The bays between Wilson Hill Island and the Massena intake dam are popular nothern pike areas with walleyes and muskies also found.

The Robert Moses State Park offers a dramatic view of ocean going cargo ships passing through the Eisenhower and Snell Locks. A boat launch, picnic areas, and campsites are available as well as a visitors center.
