“Great Spot for Camping”

Glimmerglass State Park
Ranked #6 of 36 things to do in Cooperstown
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 November 2017

We camped here Induction Weekend for 3 nights (got the last spot) and were very glad we did. Conveniently located to town but in a scenic, rural area. We didn't swim, but saw lots that did. Also has a historic site, Hyde Hall, as well as historic covered bridge.

We also really liked that it had a grill on each campsite and our daughter (3 yrs old) LOVED the small creek running through the middle of the campground.

We continue to be impressed by the excellent conditions of the NYS campgrounds. GSP is less than 10 miles from Cooperstown, NY, so book early because it fills up quickly in the Summer. Perfect for a family get together or romantic getaway. Sites are secluded and private, and we never even thought of putting on our bathing suits. Well kept hiking trails abound for all levels of hikers. The roads outside the park are narrow and hilly, so bike with caution.

Nice Park by the water, there are benches and a nice waterfront area and large rolling lawn down to the waters edge

My mother and I arrived for a few days of relaxation and truly enjoyed the change of color on the trees. Absolutely breathe taking!

Worth the effort to drive through this park in order to appreciate the preservation of this gorgeous lake from overdevelopment. The views of the lake here are probably nit much changed from the 18th C. We visited on a sleepy Saturday morning at end of September; but I expect it gets crowded in the summer season. Swimming, camping, picnicking. Don't miss the oldest covered bridge in the US on site.
