Fillmore Glen State Park is a 941-acre (3.81 km2) state park[2] located in the Finger Lakes region of New York adjacent to the Village of Moravia in Cayuga County.

Park description[edit]

The primary attractions of the park are the hiking trails with views of a stream and five waterfalls, in addition to the swimming pond, made by damming the stream.[5] It also features a replica of President Millard Fillmore's boyhood log cabin, as the park is about five miles (8 km) from the former president's birthplace.[6][better source needed]

The park offers swimming, picnic tables and pavilions, cabins, a campground with 60 tent and trailer sites, hunting and fishing, hiking, a playground, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.[5]
