Whether you are looking for a lake to set your tip-ups or rolling hills to blaze through snowmobile trails, the Cooperstown New York area has it.
Located at the southern tip of Otsego Lake, made famous by author James Fenimore Cooper’s The Leatherstocking Tales, the terrain makes for perfect winter sporting and the craft beverage scene is here for the after-party. With 16 road-access lakes, the mighty Susquehanna River, 20 New York State forests, and 5 New York State Parks in Otsego County, adventure opportunities are limitless.
Hike or take your fat tire bike down the Sleeping Lion Trail at Glimmerglass State Park. Mid-winter, strap into your snowshoes or cross-country skis and traverse the area’s vast countrysides. After a morning out, warm up with a pint or two at one of our 9 breweries. Check out Brewery Ommegang, where they are tapping kegs with Belgian-style beers inspired by Game of Thrones™.
Baseball fan? Look no further than the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum. Brush up on the history of America’s beloved pastime and visit Doubleday Field where the fabled tale of baseball’s birth takes place. Looking for a jersey, hat, or bat to take home? Cooperstown’s Main Street covers all the bases. Be sure to check out the Cooperstown Bat Company’s store to get a personalized bat, then head to their factory in Hartwick, NY for a tour and demonstration of how they are made!
