Visit Central New York
Outdoor Adventure

Central New York brings a better experience to the great outdoors.

Sure you’ve hiked, biked, floated, fished, hunted or golfed in many a wide-open space. But, have you ever mined for diamonds or strolled along the canal that shaped American history?



You can only find those Herkimer diamonds here and Central New York’s 98-plus miles of the Erie Canal offer endless options for adventure whether you’re walking, cycling or cruising.

History and natural beauty collide throughout the region, which includes more than a dozen outdoor state and national historic sites and well over 350 miles of trails.


Paddle board or kayak on serene Otsego Lake, also known as the Glimmerglass of great American author James Fenimore Cooper’s legendary novels. Fish from the banks or wade into West Canada Creek, a pristine trout fishery (and popular canoe destination) that originates in the Adirondack Mountains.

Adventure into 144 state forests to discover hidden watersheds, trails and more. You’ll find well over 184,500 acres’ worth of outdoor bliss – including fishing and hunting – in Central New York, with access to some 187,391 more acres of wilderness in neighboring regions.

Explorers can do some hard-core camping in many of these woodland sanctuaries or make reservations for one of Central New York’s 3,500-plus public and private campsites that range in comfort from roughing it to RV.

Central New York’s 14 state parks make great starting points for outdoor adventure with access to hundreds of miles trails, the region’s most prominent lakes and popular public recreation destinations.

Our villages, towns and cities offer dozens more peaceful parks and pathways ideal for picnicking or late afternoon strolls.

Central New York counties host their own hidden gems like the rushing waterfalls of Wintergreen Park and Gorge near Canajoharie or the Landis Arboretum in Esperance, a unique public garden featuring 40 acres of flowers, plants and shrubs from around the world (and another 508 acres to explore).

Central New York teems with watchable wildlife, even in its urban centers. Utica is home to a 213-acre wildlife management area, which begins within city limits and where visitors might catch a glimpse of more than 160 bird species. Just to the north, the Rome Sand Plains hosts the rare frosted elfin butterfly each spring.

The birds and butterflies are joined by a spectacular cast of raptors and mammals, including a healthy population bald eagles and black bears.

You can even add some culture to your expedition at the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park near the lovely lakeside village of Cazenovia. One of the first of its kind in the country, Stone Quarry spreads 100 works of art over 104 captivating acres.

Trade in your boots for snowshoes or cross-country skis when winter brings its own brand of beauty to Central New York.

For those who do their walking on the greens, Central New York hosts more than 60 courses, some designed by legendary architects, many of them highly rated by the nation’s premier golf publications and all of them the perfect place to spend a morning.

After your round, you may want to grab a round of beverages. One of 65-plus breweries, hard cideries, distilleries, craft-focused pubs and wineries that make up Brew Central shouldn’t be far away.

Central New York is not only America's Craft Brew Destination, we also serve up some of the state’s finest produce and locavore fare. Follow a CNYFresh trail for a taste of our agricultural heritage.

No matter which activity you choose, where you go or when you do it, you’ll find there’s more to the great outdoors in Central New York.

So, let’s get some boots on the ground, spokes on the road and paddles in the water. Wet a line, take aim or tee up.
