If escaping from the noise is what you are looking for, whether for a weekend stay or extended trip, Orleans County, NY has a variety of choices for you and your family.
We invite you to unplug and reconnect with our small Canal Town charm and back to basics nature along our waterways. We are located on the banks of Lake Ontario between Niagara Falls and Rochester, NY including 25 miles on the Erie Canalway Trail. The waters of Lake Ontario, the famous Oak Orchard River and the tributaries—once deemed the Ultimate Fishing Town, offer world class year-round fishing for trout and salmon.

Sailing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and hydro-cycling are a great way to relax and be one with nature.
