The best part is they're all just a short drive from your Binghamton apartment! 
Boasting 466 acres of pristine woods, you'll love hiking and walking your dog on 9 miles of incredible trails located right here in Binghamton. Want to sit back and take in the scenery? Stop by the magnificent 6 acre pond where you can sit back and enjoy a day of fishing. These are just a few reasons why we love the Aqua-Terra Wilderness Area and you will too!

Wolfe Park 
You'll come for the miles of well maintained trails and stay for the gorgeous wildflowers, magnificent waterfall, and scenic overlook of Chenango. One visitor called it "a hidden gem" and it's easy to understand why. The wildlife is incredible and there are trails for everyone from seasoned wilderness pros to young children and everyone is certain to leave happy at the end of a great day at Wolfe Park!

Chenango Valley State Park

Pack your bags and spend a few days swimming, boating, and fishing on two beautiful lakes while sleeping on one of the many campgrounds, or enjoy the comfort of a rented cabin!
