You can practice your swing at the 18-hole Chenango Valley State Park Golf Course or go birdwatching for woodpeckers, warblers, and thrushes in the forested wetlands. Chenango Lake is also popular among anglers hoping to lure trout, bass, perch, and bullhead.
Directly north of the RV campground is the Beaver Flow State Forest, which encompasses just over 1,000 acres of land that has been altered by the activities of beavers. There are numerous beaver-built dams that have created ponds and meadows, attracting a variety of wildlife that includes muskrats, raccoons, mink, and deer. You can stretch your legs along the short multi-use trail at the southwestern edge of the forest or embark on the longer southeast to northwest hiking and snowmobiling trail.
Head east from Harpursville, and you’ll eventually arrive at the Arctic-China State Forest, which is traversed by a section of the long-distance Finger Lakes Trail. For just a taste of the trail, you can begin hiking in the Oquaga Creek State Park and pass through the Beals Pond State Forest that’s home to the Getter Hill Lean-to and Motor Engine Falls. After descending through Beals Pond, the trail eventually arrives in the Arctic-China State Forest and finishes beside the sparkling waters of Arctic Lake.
