The scenic highlight of the park is its expansive view of Cayuga Lake. In the shallow water near the park, largemouth bass, bullheads and carp thrive. In deeper water, anglers can catch northern pike, small mouth bass, lake trout, landlocked salmon and many other varieties of fish. The park has a boat launch, playground, playing field. The vacation rental at Cayuga Lake State Park is located off Lower Lake Road on Cayuga Lake and is shaded by mature trees. The park provides lake rights, across Lower Lake Road, on the lake. Spacious grounds with picnic tables and a campfire ring adorn the property and a lakefront dock is available for tenants. The vacation rental has a fully enclosed porch with a view of Cayuga Lake. Indoor amenities include a dining room and counter space that can seat eight for meals, full kitchen with a stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, flatware, plates, glasses, pots, pans, cooking utensils, one and a half baths, heat, hot water/shower, three bedrooms (two with double beds and one with two single beds), wood stove and a sleeper sofa (sleeps two) in the living room.

Cayuga Lake, the longest of the Finger Lakes, is just under 40 miles long, is 3 1/2 miles wide at the widest point, and has an average width of 1 3/4 miles. It is 435 feet deep at the deepest point off King Ferry (second only to Seneca Lake in depth) and at 384 feet above sea level is the lowest of the Finger Lakes. In addition to the Cayuga Inlet at Ithaca, five tributaries at the southern end feed the lake: Cascadilla Creek, Fall Creek, Salmon Creek, Six-Mile Creek and Taughannock Creek. Cayuga Lake outlets into the Seneca and Cayuga Canal, which joins the northern ends of Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. This canal connects with the Erie Canal north of Seneca Falls. Lake Ontario can be accessed from Cayuga Lake via the Erie Canal, Cross Lake and the Oswego Canal.
