Many of the County Links on the left will keep you specifically in or near Ellicottville and Cattaraugus County here in the southwest corner of New York
. New links and listings are added often.
This is a special place filled with unexpected surprises around every turn of the country road. Located in Western New York along the border of Pennsylvania, Cattaraugus County is home to the only city in the nation on Native American lands. The county is easily accessible from the Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo, Toronto, Rochester or Syracuse areas. The Seneca Indian Nation, a branch of the Iroquois, has a proud history which is on view at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum.
Allegany State Park, New York's largest state park, lies along the southern border of the county. It attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year who come to camp, to enjoy the woods, hiking trails, swim in the two lakes, fish in the streams, ponds and lakes, snowmobile, cross-country ski, hunt, ride horses and just take in the bountiful beauty of nature. Adjoining the state park is the Allegheny Reservoir which features the Onoville Marina Park.
For those who want to experience Western New York's hidden gem, white water rafting on the mighty Cattaraugus, through Zoar Valley, is the perfect springtime activity. You'll view rugged cliffs hundreds of feet high, waterfalls (both free falling and hidden by old growth stands of oak, hemlock and tulip), nesting bald eagles and you'll experience the finest white water west of the Adirondacks. The Spring Rafting Season in Zoar Valley opens in March with the spring runoff and lasts until late May or early June as the water level becomes too low. The best white water action can normally be had through April, depending of course on the amount of rainfall. May, as water level begins to recede, can generally be counted on to provide a more scenic, warmer and serene trip. May showers, however, can bring about a sudden rise in water levels.
