A. Doubleday Campground, Cooperstown, New York

A. Doubleday Campground is one of several located within in the infamous Cooperstown, New York area. Cooperstown, located a few hours from NYC is a lush, rural, small town that thrives on baseball. Each year thousands swarm here during the summer months not only to celebrate the Baseball Hall of Fame inductions at the town's museum, but to play in various baseball tournaments at the various facilities in the small town. The town's Main Street is loaded with shops and eateries catering to the baseball fan. This campground is about ten miles North of
the main town's activities; just across the road you will find Ostego Lake. The lake is a hub of activity during summer months and you will find that lake houses are bustling with summer users. The park itself has a Mom and Pop feel to it with friendly folks that help you check in and get settled into your spot. A small cafĂ© is on site along with a meager camp store where you might find some supplies you need. A laundry "room" consisting of only one washer and dryer is available for use. Kids will enjoy the playground, basketball court, or the pool. Sites here are either in the grassy open space or tucked into the wooded area. We found ourselves settled into the grassy space, which we appreciated and seemed to be used more for tourists. The wooded sites seemed to be for longer stays or even semi-permanent residents. The campground is open year round and offers small and large cabins for rent. Surrounded by open space and farm fields, the park was a relaxing space to settle in for a few days. All sites have campfire rings, a picnic table, and full hookups. Site pads are either dirt or grass and interior roads are not paved.
