Finger lAkeS region Finger Lakes Region The Finger Lakes are gorgeous! A water-lover’s utopia, with lakes, cascading waterfalls, rivers and creeks, all carved thousands of years ago by ice-age glaciers. Oh yeah, all of this makes for some of the best wine-growing areas in the world! New to the region is the addition of popular rustic cabins at select parks. WATKINS GLEN STATE PARK Watkins Glen State Park is the oldest and most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks, with a reputation for leaving visitors spellbound. Glen Creek has poured down the glacially-steepened valley side for 12,000 years leaving 19 glistening waterfalls and cascades, some of which visitors walk behind on the gorge trail. The park boasts beautiful wooded campsites with one loop offering 54 electric sites and three have playgrounds. Enjoy a dip in the Olympic-sized pool. The nearby lakes and creeks are ideal for fishing and renowned for the annual spring run of rainbow trout. Hikers can walk along the winding paths of the gorge, or explore the nearby Catharine Valley Trail by bicycle. | 54
