A cascading river and a beautiful lake inspire life in Cochecton. The Delaware River forms the Western boundary; a major attraction for outdoor activities from fishing to canoeing. One can trace the river along the scenic Route 97. An added attraction for all includes Cochecton as one of the best locations to view the bald eagle.
Lake Huntington, located in central Cochecton is a favorite for ice fishing in the winter, a warm home-cooked meal or a favorite libation at a local eatery. From the deck of the Nutshell Arts Center, one can view boaters and the serene lake. Area artists are abundant – some are highlighted in New York City galleries. The Nutshell features internationally distinguished performers in The Weekend of Chamber Music Series.
Another NYC import, the annual “City Games” at Fosterdale Lodge is well worth the trip. Other major sites for tourism include home grown traditional country stores, an ice cream parlor displaying Early American artifacts, a railroad station/museum, and craft exhibits at Cochecton Center’s Annual Founders Day. Cochecton is also accessible from Routes 17B and 52.
