Answer: Watkins Glen State Park
Watkins Glen State Park was officially created in 1906, taking over a former scenic resort that first opened in 1863. It was called the Watkins Glen Reservation and was the first state park created in the Finger Lakes region. The park celebrated its centennial eight years ago.
In 2008, Owl Gorge Productions published A Walk Through Watkins Glen: Water's Sculpture in Stone, which has been available in the park's gift shop. An e-version will be available online soon from this website. In 2009, this book received first place in the small book category in the Media Awards competition of the National Association for Interpretation, the premier professional organization for park naturalists, historians, and others who interpret our natural and cultural heritage in national, state, and local parks, nature centers, historic sites, and other similar places.
