Start Your Adventure

The campfire crackles while you sit under the shining stars overlooking a spring-fed lake — this could be your nightly accommodations at Meadow-Vale Campground. Waking up to a lake view from your tent, RV, or cabin? Yes please. With 110 campsites, each offering plenty of space, shade and privacy, a night under the stars never felt so good.

Let's not forget the other campgrounds though, Beaver Valley Campsites is located less than 5 miles from the center of Cooperstown village, making it the perfect home base if you're looking to reap the benefits of the village shops, restaurants, and historic attractions. Finally, there is Cooperstown KOA, located minutes to Otsego Lake and Glimmerglass State Park, offering hikers miles of trails and picturesque summits to explore.

Glimmerglass State Park boasts an impressive trail system, on varied terrain, beautiful scenic overlooks, and is surrounded by the region's blooming meadows. Summiting Wellington Mountain, touring around Beaver Pond, or trekking the Woodland Trails are just some of the hiking options to choose from. A little piece of advice though, don't forget your camera. You'll see why once you're here.

Looking to get out on the water? Forget lugging a canoe or kayak to the lake or river. With canoe and kayak rentals available right along the banks of Otsego Lake, Goodyear Lake, and the Susquehanna River it's effortless. Home to the headwaters of the Susquehanna River, cut through the water traveling a few miles downstream, or, try becoming part of the 444 Club, following the 444-mile journey all the way down into the Chesapeake Bay. A unique club with a lot of bragging rights that all starts in Cooperstown, NY.
