Chenango Valley State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Another medium-sized park with something for almost everyone, Chenango Valley owes its natural beauty to the end of the last Ice Age, when retreating glaciers left Lily Lake and Chenango Lake in this part of what is now Broome County. The park covers close to 1,100 acres, with three groups of tent and trailer sites: Chipmunk Bluff, Pine Bluff, and Sunrise. Each has at least one comfort station. Spots with grass and gravel surfaces offer a mix of sun and shade. Sites 62, 63, 88, and 206 are handicapped accessible. Birdwatchers stand a good chance of seeing warblers, woodpeckers, nuthatches, and thrushes, while anglers will hope to hook trout, bass, and bullhead. Meanwhile, the eighteenhole, par 72 golf course in the park might tempt some campers out onto the links, and more than a dozen miles of woodland trails will excite travelers who never go anywhere without a good pair of hiking boots."
