Perched atop a hill in Southern Otsego County, Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park provides spectacular views to the south and west. Nearly two thirds of the park is blanketed by a forest of hardwoods intermixed with smaller areas of conifer plantation. The remainder of this 229-acre property is occupied by gently rolling meadowlands and two ponds. The park, which is named for the generous New York couple who donated the land to the state, offers a variety of recreational opportunities. With expansive views and tranquil surroundings, Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park is a favorite among birdwatchers and other nature lovers.

On-site facilities include a picnic area and the sunset pavilion picnic shelter. The park also features an extensive network of hiking trails and a woodland stream. Another park activity includes catch and release fishing. Winter activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobile trails that connect to the state corridor trail system.

Located in Westford, the park is just a short drive from Cooperstown, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park is sure to be a fantastic destination for any family outing.

Hidden gem. Stayed at one of the cabins for a weekend, was not disappointed. Very well put together, had everything we needed, and was near some ok trails. I went in the middle of the winter and wasn't able to do much hiking, but it's a relaxing quiet getaway upstate

This is a great park. When my son played in Cooperstown, we made a camping trip out of it. Incredibly quiet and extremely well maintained property.

I have been going to these cabins for 6 years now. It has become almost an annual trip I have been in every season except summer. The cabins are clean and in amazing condition. The staff is kind and accommodating. I highly recommend this place. Great for hikers and a family or friends getaway. There are caves and great antiquing a drive away. I have a trip planned for April and cannot wait!!

Stop there after going to Glimmerglass State Park. It wasn't worth the drive. You are not in the mountains. Its also a stone road . There are so many other state parks that are much better.
