Experience the incredible outdoor recreation opportunities of the Southern Finger Lakes, from fishing on Keuka Lake, to pitching a tent under the stars, to riding your bike down rural country routes just to see where they lead.

The Finger Lakes landscape has stories to tell, of Seneca warriors and geocaches of treasure, of lake monsters and wine tours by bike. Paddle the shores of Keuka Lake and experience the natural world from a new perspective, explore mile after mile of Finger Lakes hiking trails, and wrap up your outdoor adventure at one of the many wineries, breweries or distilleries located throughout the region.

For sportsmen and women, it doesn't get better than casting a line or gearing up for the hunt in Finger Lakes region. After all, there's a reason Steuben County is ranked #1 for deer hunting by New York Game & Fish Magazine.

Don't miss the rich variety of outdoor adventures available in the Southern Finger Lakes.
