Resting between Seneca and Cayuga Lakesis the  impressive Finger Lakes National Forest. With over 30 intersecting trails, hiking is just one way to view the diverse habitat rich in plant and animal life. The National Forest offers free camping at three different locations. Each site is tailored for unique camping experiences. The Potomac Group Campground accommodates parties of 10-40 people, the Backbone Horse Campground welcomes horseback riders, and the more traditional Blueberry Patch Campground allows tent or vehicle camping. Licensed hunters and anglers are encouraged to explore the numerous ponds and woodlands on the grounds. Working up an appetite just thinking about all the recreational opportunities? No problem; the forest contains five acres devoted to blueberry picking as well as interspersed raspberry patches and apple trees.
