Fillmore Glen State Park is an oasis of cool, dense woods crowding into a long, narrow gorge. Its hiking trails offer spectacular views, unique geological formations, including five waterfalls, and a botanically rich glen. The park has 60 campsites and a stream-fed swimming pool. Anglers will enjoy fishing in the Owasco Lake inlet. In the winter, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are permitted on unplowed roads.
Named for U.S. President Millard Fillmore, Fillmore Glen State Park is located adjacent to Moravia, in Cayuga County. A replica of the log cabin in which President Fillmore was born is located within the park.
The park's favorite activities include hiking to waterfalls, hunting, picnicking, and camping, as well as winter snowmobiling. The park holds special events regularly that draw a boisterous crowd.
The park has a beach, cabins, campsites with dumping stations and showers, pavilions, picnic tables, a playground, and playing fields. For those who prefer the luxuries of home, the park offers a full-service cottage located on the shore of Cayuga Lake at Long Point.
Long Point State Park - Finger Lakes, Buttermilk Falls State Park, Robert H. Treman State Park, Cayuga Lake State Park, and Taughannock Falls State Park are all nearby.
Each year the campground makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice.
