Thanks to John Kulpa and Bill Edwards for these directions: This one is in the back yards of the folks living on the east side of the lake. For the best views from the land-side, take Forest Avenue (second road west of NY 13 in Verona Beach). Take 4th Ave., which runs from Forest Ave. to the lake. At the end of 4th Ave., the light is on your left, with a private home on your right. There is a small sign by the light designating it as a "Park" area. I think folks would be ok if they stay on the "Light" (left) side of the road, away from the right side of the road by the home (which does have a private property sign). You've got to look really hard, because it's thick with trees.
