Chenango Valley State Park is an ice age wonder. Its two kettle lakes, Lily and Chenango, were created when the last glacier retreated and left behind huge chunks of buried ice which melted to form the lakes and bog. Birdwatchers may glimpse woodpeckers, nut hatches, warblers and thrushes along woodland trails and herons, ducks and kingfishers lakeside. Fishermen will find trout, bass, perch and bullhead in Chenango Lake. Campers can choose from among 184 campsites and 24 cabins and golfers will appreciate the 18-hole Chenango Valley State Park*Golf Course*(pro shop can be reached by calling: 607-648-9700). Sledding and cross-country ski trails attract visitors in winter.

Campground is just outside Binghamton, NY in Chenango Forks, NY. It is 1 hour from Corning or Ithaca, and 1 ˝ hours from Cooperstown (National Baseball Hall of Fame).

Lots of nice upstate NY views to see. This is a very nice State Park with lots of Trails, Lakes and peaceful tranquility. Come and enjoy the outdoors with fellow FROGS.

Registration Opens October 20th, 2017, you can call the campground to reserve or reserve through Reserve America or through the Parks.ny.gov website.

Once you reserve please contact/IM Ron & Shirley McLaughlin (rmac04401) to tell them how many people you have attending, names of attendees, and what site you have.

The itinerary is casual, Times and location of gatherings will be determined as we get closer.

Tentative Itinerary

Friday night – Meet and greet – finger foods and dessert
Saturday – On your own to explore park and surrounding areas
Saturday night – Potluck
Sunday Morning - Last Gathering – Breakfast Potluck to visit and say Goodbyes.

This is the second year for this and we hope to sell out the Chipmunk loop. Nothing is set aside for us so reserve early. The host will hopefully have site #114 again.

These are electric only sites, you get to make sure your holding tanks work lol. There is potable water you can fill up at the campground. We had a great set up last year. There is a common area in back of 114-116 where we were able to have some of the activities last year.

The ten of us were all on the chipmunk rings. There are two sections in that part of campground. The other one is a distance away from chipmunk.

Here is a link to campground map. You will see the chipmunk section has three rings.

Looking forward to it again. Gonna try for site 115 again. For anyone who brings your own kayaks just be aware that you have to portage them from the parking lot so if you are alone I recommend bringing a dolly to make it easier.

62 possible sites between the two rings of electric sites at chipmunk section. We had individuals in both rings last year. All easily accessible with a short stroll.
