CAMPGROUND
Watkins Glen State Park is the most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks, with a reputation for leaving visitors spellbound. Within two miles, the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge. Campers and day-visitors can enjoy the Olympic-size pool, scheduled summer tours through the gorge, tent and trailer campsites, picnic facilities and excellent fishing in nearby Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek, which is renowned for its annual spring run of rainbow trout.


WATERFALLS
Take in the splendor of some of the most beautiful waterfalls in New York State right here in Schuyler County. The hikes are varying skill levels; Please exercise caution.

Watkins Glen State Park - State Route 14, Downtown Watkins Glen; There are approximately 19 waterfalls that cascade through the gorge.  Unfortunately this is not handicap accessible.

Excelsior Glen Falls - State Route 414 North, just outside of the Village of Watkins Glen; This is a challenging hike and is not handicap accessible.

Twin Falls - Templar Road, Watkins Glen

Aunt Sarah's Falls - State Route 14, Montour Falls; This waterfall is along the roadside

Shequaga Falls - Genesee Street, Montour Falls; 160 foot waterfall that is along the roadside.

Deckertown Falls - Catlin Street (off of S. L'Hommedieu Street), Montour Falls

Havana Glen Gorge/Eagle Cliff Falls - Havana Glen Road (off of State Route 14); This is a somewhat challenging hike that is not handicap accessible.

Hector Falls - State Route 414 N, Hector; 165 foot roadside waterfall

My 2 cents, but probably worth one.

That would work a lot better, but don't change it for us. LOL
We have Hatteras in that time frame every year too. Just busting your chops for my wife.

Two years away...  wow...  I'll mark the calendar and we'll see what happens... Been a few years since we were at Watkins..   I can't confirm anything right now as it will depend on the exact dates, whether I am on regular days off or if I need to bid for vacation time..   


Just an FYI ..   Something to look into as the date gets closer..

We did this when we were there a few years ago, was a cool experience..

We did it too, a lot of fun. It was also great to get an on track perspective of something that I've watched on TV a ton of times.

Yep, we drove the track, too. Some in our group even pulled their popups behind them. I will definitely keep an eye on this. We camped at the Glen several times & have been wanting to revisit the area.
