Idyllic setting in the fall when the leaves are changing

This campground is at the north end of Otsego Lake less than 10 miles from Cooperstown. It's a great base for exploring Cooperstown. The Baseball Hall of Fame, Abner Doubleday Field and the nearby Ommegang Brewery are my favorite spots in Cooperstown, but there's such a diverse set of activities:

Water-based activities such as canoeing, kayaking, sailbaoarding

  • Glimmerglass Opera

  • Farmers' Museum

  • Fenimore Museum

  • a couple more breweries and a distillery

  • and on and on

The park is a good place to stay during the fall colors season and also on Hall of Fame Weekend in late July, but book early!

We've camped here in a tent near Beaver Meadows

  • We had this place to ourselves when we camped near Beaver Pond in the fall. This area is only appropriate for tents.
  • View of the northern tip of Otsego Lake from the camping area of Glimmerglass State Park. We camped in our teardrop trailer when we had this view.
