Cool - Lea Camp

Odessa, New York

Cool - Lea Camp is a campground located in Odessa. Open from May 15 to October 15, this charming campground offers the finest in "back to nature" family vacations. Cool-Lea is set along the shores of pristine Cayuta Lake. The lake was named for the Seneca princess Kayutah. Legend has it that the princess was kidnapped by a hostile tribe and that her mother's tears filled the valley to form the lake.Today, Cayuta Lake is a fishing paradise, with Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Yellow Perch, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed, Rock Bass, Brown Bullhead, Chubsucker, Golden Shiner and White Sucker flourishing in the crystal clear waters. If angling isn't your thing, get out on the water in a rental rowboat or (for a taste of my ancestor's way of boating) canoe. There is no limit on the size of motorboats on the lake.

Holidays are special at Cool-Lea Camp. Enjoy charming celebrations during Memorial Day Weekend, the annual Father's Day Breakfast, Independence Day and "Christmas in July." Hayrides, potlucks, sing-a-longs, bonfires on the lake are just the beginning. Find out what's happening on our calendar!

With all the great fun and activities at the campground, you might be tempted to spend your whole vacation here. If you are an explorer by nature, however, there are plenty of local attractions to experience. Get a taste of local vintages on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. The whole family will be inspired by the beauty of Watkin Glens State Park. Discover the rich cultural heritage of my people at the The Seneca-Iroquois National Museum. Thrills and excitement await you at Watkins Glen International raceway. Shopping, local festivals, cruises and much more are all within a short trip from the campground.
