The beach is clean and there looks like a lot to do! There are historical sites, hiking trails, camp ground, snack bars, and sport activities.
We stayed here for 4 days and nights while in the Cooperstown area. Due to it being shortly after the induction ceremonies at the Baseball Hall of Fame, and just before the big beer festival at Brewery Ommengang (Belgium Comes to Cooperstown), hotel prices were rather high.

We parked by one of the trails and walked,... More
