GREENE – With another camping season underway, Cook Park in the Town of Greene is making improvements and bringing in new programming that park managers hope will draw more local interest in the county-owned campgrounds.
Since the late 60s, Cook Park has been a stomping ground for outdoor adventurists in the Chenango County area. With a total 45 camp sites and four miles of walking tails on 128 acres of land, “there are a lot of opportunities for outdoor recreational activities,” said Cook Park Manager Kyle Boeltz.
“Hopefully, changes this year will bring a larger crowd and possibly people who haven’t been here in the past,” Boeltz added. “What makes us unique is that we’re really a picturesque, smaller park. The community here has more a family feel to it. We have all the amenities of a larger park, but we’re smaller, closer to home, and we’re easier to access on a shorter period of time.”
