Welcome to the Friends of Grafton Lakes State Park.

We are a growing group of volunteers who love our beautiful backyard park. We clear trails, lead and join hikes, kayak and fish. We love the flora and fauna of this Rensselaer Plateau jewel. 

Our work is supported by Membership dues and Member participation. We hope you will consider joining us, or simply making a donation. Follow the map below and come for a visit. 

What's New !

We are starting the Year 2019 in a new and exciting direction here in Grafton.

Happy New Year to all of you Friends of Grafton people!

We are excited and pleased to announce the start of our 2nd Annual membership drive and Empire Passport Drawing!

After the overwhelming positive response to last year's campaign, we are going to do it again this year. 

For those of you who joined Friends for the first time during last year's membership drive, your membership is about to expire.  So, consider taking this opportunity to renew your membership and continue your support for FGLSP.   

 As we did last year, each paid membership renewal gets one ticket in the drawing for the Passport. The final day to participate in the Drawing is going to be 12 midnight on Sunday, February 3, 2019.  

IF you have joined FGLSP, OR renewed your membership after September 1, 2018, you are automatically being credited one ticket for the drawing!

Same as last year, ALL members can purchase additional tickets for the drawing at $1 per ticket, by donating to Friends before the 2/3/19 deadline.

 We will do the drawing for the Passport at our Quarterly Meeting on Wednesday, February 6, at 6:30 pm at the Welcome Center!

To join / renew your Friends membership, the easiest way is to go to our secure link below.  This also allows you to make additional donations on-line to purchase additional tickets for the drawing!

 Membership categories and prices are the same as last year:

$5 for Seniors

$10 for Individual Membership

$15 for Family Membership

$50 for Partner Group Membership

 If you have any questions, or need to know your membership renewal date, please send an email to….


You can also purchase additional tickets and/or join/renew your membership in person at Winterfest on Saturday, January 26!

Thank you all and hopefully we will see you at Winterfest!
