Onchiota, New York

Situated between Oregon Pond and Buck Pond in the Adirondacks, Onchiota, New York is a tranquil destination full of natural beauty.

Onchiota

Buck Pond is a 130 acre lake with rowboat, canoe and kayak rentals. Motor boating is also available. There are walking and biking paths along a deserted railroad track. A sand beach is the perfect spot for swimming. This area is famous for its fishing. Abundant amounts of northern pike, yellow perch and brown bullhead can be found in Buck Pond.

Oregon Pond is a smaller lake in the Onchiota area. This lake allows non-power boats only such as rowboats, canoes and kayaks. The atmosphere is therefore peaceful and conducive to a true appreciation of the exquisiteness of the setting.

Campgrounds, inns, motels and cottages are available for rent in the area. There are also several restaurants for visitors to try, including the popular Blue Moon Café.

The main indoor attraction in the area is the Six Nations Indian Museum, which opened in 1954. The museum is built in the style of a traditional Iroquois bark house. Its long, narrow shape represents the six tribes of the Iroquois nation extending east to west over its land. The museum contains Iroquois artifacts and educational displays of Native American life. It is open regularly during the summer and by appointment in the spring and fall.

The lush natural beauty of the Onchiota area provides a breath-taking experience. Amenities and an interesting museum make this a must-see area for visitors to the Adirondacks.
