(30 reviews from 1 attraction)
Nature
The hamlet of Findley Lake is in the town of Mina in southwestern Chautauqua County, New York in the United States, at an elevation of 1440 ft (439 m) above sea level. The hamlet was settled by War of 1812 veteran Alexander Findley who in 1815 built a dam to power his mill and thus created the lake from two ponds. The settlement that grew up around the mills prospered.The Lakeside Assembly on the southwest shore entertained during the summer between 1895 and 1915 with programs that rivaled Chautauqua Assembly, at the Chautauqua Institution. The Assembly was reached by two steamboats, the Silver Spray and the Daisy.Findley Lake is a four season getaway for camping at Paradise Bay Park Family Campground (located right on the lake), hiking, biking, golf, fishing, hunting, boating, skiing and snowmobiles. Peek'n Peak Four Season Resort is less than five miles and all hamlet and town roads are approved and marked as snowmobile trails. The community has antique and specialty shops as well as restaurants, bed and breakfasts and country inns.
