Entrance on the corner of River and Lake Streets Description Council Rock is situated at the corner of Lake and River Streets within the Village of Cooperstown. It is a 1.25 acre site on the west bank of the mouth of the Susquehanna River. Stone steps lead from the street to the Lake.
Not only does the park offer a magnificent view of the lake, but it is also an important site in the history of Cooperstown [Council Rock and Clinton/Sullivan Expedition of August 9, 1779]. Its entrance is marked by two stone columns with Historical Markers and a large painted arrow which indicates true North.

Known as baseball’s birthplace, but home to so much more, Cooperstown is a place where legends roam hallowed halls, swing away on diamonds, and take to the stage under a canopy of stars. The historic village boasts a vibrant arts scene, excellent local food and beverage options, luxury accommodations, and, of course, more baseball than you can shake a bat at.
