Onchiota, NY

Situated between Oregon Pond and Buck Pond in the Adirondacks, Onchiota 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, and a sand beach makes the perfect spot for swimming. This area is famous for its fishing. Abundant quantities 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, creating an exceptionally peaceful atmosphere.

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

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 breathtaking experience. Amenities and a unique museum make this a must-see area for visitors to the Adirondacks.
