Finger Lakes National Forest
Located on a ridge between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes, the 16,212-acre Finger Lakes National Forest is the only National Forest in New York State. Visitors can pick berries, apples, and pears on the old farmsteads and orchards scattered throughout forest. Adjacent to it is the prime wine- and grape-producing region of upstate New York, where wine, bread, and cheese are easy to find and add to a picnic basket. Other activities include camping, hiking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hunting, fishing, and horseback riding. The Forest is popular with birdwatchers: half of the breeding bird species in New York State can be spotted in it. Three developed campgrounds include amenities such as toilets and garbage pickup, but no potable water is available. A small visitor center provides information and sells items such as hats, shirts, and field guides.
