Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park

Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park is perched on top of a hill in Southern Ostego County, NY with spectacular views to the south and west.

About two-thirds of the property is covered in a hardwood forest with hiking trails running throughout. Catch and release fishing is allowed on the two ponds found in the park. 

Winter activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobile trails that connect to the state trail system.
