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.

Household pets during day use only, must be on a leash not more than 6 feet. Pets not allowed in cottages.
