Recreational Opportunities in Fowler
Fowler is a town of lakes, streams with the Oswegatchie River flowing from East to West through the town. Activities like ATV'ing, biking, camping, canoeing and kayaking, fishing, boating and scuba-diving make Fowler a sportsman's paradise no matter what the season. Because of the myriad types of waters, streams, lakes, waterfalls and rivers, Fowler is a wonderful place for birding and photography.
Rock hounds will find Fowler a "gold mine" of rare and sought-after rocks and minerals. Snowmobiling and cross country skiing are a fun and active way to pass the winter season. Fowler offers a multitude of places for family picnics and gatherings. The Gouverneur Country Club, located in Hailesboro, is a welcoming place to shoot a round of golf, relaxing afterward in the restaurant/bar with good people. And the Fall foliage is always spectacular.
Wolf Lake Hike is accessed from the Talcville Road. Talcville is located between Edwards and Fowler. This is a moderate 5 mile loop winding around rock outcrops and leads to a series of picturesque lakes, each with a lean-to, and a 40-foot bluff overlooking Huckleberry Lake.
The Town of Fowler manages a number of recreational facilities. Our ball field is located in Hailesboro, a hamlet of Fowler. Fowler is home to Sylvia Lake, a beautiful, spring-fed lake with fishing access and a public beach, maintained by the Town of Fowler.
The Sylvia Lake Beach is open to the public seven days a week from the end of June to the end of August. For groups, parties or for more information call Rick Newvine at (315) 287-4098 or the Town Clerk at (315) 287-0045.
