Chenango County, NY


Chenango is a place for both indoor and outdoor recreation and provides four seasons worth of action and entertainment for the very active to the most passive. There is 80,000 bountiful acres of state land within the county, so you won’t feel crowded as you seek the peace of mind that comes with outdoor pleasures. The Finger Lakes Trail winds through Chenango County adding miles of abundant state land, agricultural acreage and forests providing wonderful opportunities for cross-country skiing, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling and many other outdoor activities.

The Chenango, Unadilla and Susquehanna Rivers, along with several area lakes and streams, provide boating, canoeing, fishing, water skiing, and swimming opportunities. Area parks and campgrounds add picnicking, biking, hiking and camping facilities. Rogers Conservation Center in Sherburne, which is a part of the Department of Environmental Conservation, offers demonstrations and classes throughout the year to help people of all ages satisfy their curiosity about the “great outdoors.”

In addition to college and school team sports, local towns support many different athletic leagues, ice-skating rinks, golf courses, tennis courts and swimming pools. There are two raceways in the area, which host races throughout the summer for cars and dirtbikes. The new $6.5 million Norwich Family YMCA offers recreational opportunities for all ages, including children’s sports teams, adult leagues, a health club, 6-lane indoor pool, jogging track, kids gym, fitness studio’s, racquetball and basketball courts. The new David L. Emerson Soccer and Sport Farm features a regulation soccer field, two softball dimension fields, a perimeter trail/walkway, and a designated parking area for approximately 150 vehicles. Other indoor facilities include the Norwich Soccer Center, fitness and martial arts centers.

Between the rolling hills of the county runs four rivers: The Susquehanna, the Chenango, the Unadilla and the Otselic. Along their banks are wildlife and waterfowl that draw visitors to appreciate the rural beauty of the county. The hills divide the population into distinct communities who take pride in their distinctive landmarks: Norwich, the county seat with an elegant domed courthouse built in 1838; Otselic, where fishermen flock to the banks of the river on the first day of trout season and whose fishing line industry once earned it the name of Tackle Town, USA; Sherburne, with its annual Pageant of Bands and nearby waterfall and historic bridge; and Bainbridge, with the Jericho Tavern, a landmark restaurant from 1805 and a village park, ringed with white churches and punctuated with a Victorian fountain and gazebo.

Each town in Chenango County is filled with history.  Not only are many of these quaint villages filled with buildings that are over a century old, but the historical treasures that can be found at antique stores and flea markets is also a part of the area’s history.
