Stretching from the Adirondack Mountains in the north to the Erie Canal and Mohawk Valley in the south, Herkimer County offers a multitude of diverse attractions, historic sites and a wide range of recreational activities for the whole family to explore and enjoy. Old Forge is "Adirondack Base Camp" for visitors who launch out near and far seeking everything from serenity to adventure. It is the largest hamlet in the historic Town of Webb, which includes Eagle Bay and Big Moose. From here, you can explore the Central Adirondack region and all of the Adirondack Park.
Herkimer County has a north and south dimension of 83 miles, making it the longest county in New York. Hamilton County thrusts into the side of this line a corner which divides the area roughly into halves, which correspond somewhat to the differences in the two sections of the county topographically.
Old Forge is a hamlet in the county with an extensive business district, primarily directed at tourism especially during the summer months. Enchanted Forest Water Safari is New York's largest water theme park. It has 50 rides and attractions, including 32 water slides, as well as shops, restaurants, photographers, and a circus show. The town is also home to Adirondack Woodcraft Camps, located off Rondaxe Road. It was founded in 1925 as an outdoor camp for boys by Chief William Abbott. The now coeducational camp still welcomes children each summer and is one of the oldest summer camps remaining in the nation.
