Getaway to the North Country
Oneida County’s North Country is rich with living history and natural wonders. It was home and hunting grounds to the Iroquois tribes for centuries. 18th century luminaries like William Floyd, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and Baron von Steuben, Revolutionary architect of military tactics who helped guide Colonial forces to victory, made their home here.
Located in the Adirondack foothills and the southwestern tip of the Adirondack Park, the North Country is dotted with lakes, streams, hills, and forests of breath-taking beauty and historical interest. Take a tour of the Black River Canal Museum in Boonville or Baron von Steuben’s historic home in Remsen. Go trophy fishing in the West Canada Creek. Enjoy a site-seeing trip on the incomparable Adirondack Scenic Railroad. Have dinner at the Buffalo Head restaurant in Forestport. From the shores of Hinckley Lake to the colorful vistas at Pixley Falls, picturesque villages and historic homes, nature walks and picnic spots, perfect places to swim, sail, fish, hike, kayak, canoe, ski, and site-see are yours to enjoy.
