Cooperstown by Land and Lake

Swimming to snowmobiling plus hiking, biking, golfing and more await in Otsego County

Beyond baseball, beyond the arts and culture scene, Cooperstown is made for outdoor adventure – both on land and water. There are miles of lakes and rivers throughout the county. You can paddleboard the headwaters of the East Coast's longest river, kayak tree-rimmed lakes, take a sunset cruise on Otsego Lake, as well as fish and swim. Don't have your own boat? Rent one for the day!

Your options are vast for on-shore adventure, and many state parks in the area offer the perfect place for biking, hiking, camping, golf, and winter sports.

Road and mountain bikers of all stripes will find miles of country roads and paved trails with bucolic views. In Oneonta alone, there are 40 miles of tracks offering everything from easy rollers to rugged and rocky rides. That same trail system turns toward Nordic pursuits when snow flies, giving snowshoers and cross-country skiers open space.

For additional information on all the outdoor pursuits available in the area, visit or check out ThisIsCooperstown/GetOutside.
