Discover why generations of families and friends keep coming back year after year, making Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground a camping tradition. We give our campers a safe, clean, friendly and fun environment. Choose from our large park model cabins, deluxe or rustic log camping cabins, trailer rentals or very large RV campsites for your motor home, travel trailer, 5th wheel or pop up. Large units up to 50' with multiple slides are welcome. We offer secluded tent sites, as well as tent sites with water and electric right at the site.

Come enjoy a fun-filled stay of camping, building campfires, and great fishing in our 3 acre catch and release fishing pond (which has some GIANT FOUR FOOT fish just waiting for you to catch them!). Book a site right on the pond and fish from your own site!

We are always adding new amenities and activities at Shadow Brook. Come see our newly renovated pool (with lights for adult-only Saturday night swims!). Then mine for gems and fossils at the new Shadow Brook Mine, paddle boat around our new fountain, enter a tournament at our new horseshoe pits or volleyball court, gather around our new community fire pit, while enjoying our complimentary Saturday night s’mores or hot cocoa bar, and tap into your inner artist at one of our weekly art projects for kids and adults every Saturday & holiday. Pick up most anything your forgot to bring or a Shadow Brook souvenir in our newly redone general store and hang with friends at our updated rec hall while playing pool, ping pong, foozball or watching the game on our big screen tv as you curl up on our leather sectional sofa.

There is A LOT to do at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground. You'll see. We’re going to be YOUR Happy Place!

Meet the Owners

Meet the new owners Ellen and Gary We are Ellen & Gary Petrozza and we want to welcome you to OUR Happy Place! Our favorite part of campground ownership is seeing the smiles on our campers’ faces, hearing the laughter of the kids and drying an occasional tear at check-out time. Now we are looking forward to adding you to our Shadow Brook Family.

We have a little piece of heaven right here in Cooperstown, New York. Even though we are just up the road from charming Cooperstown Village and the Baseball Hall of Fame, you will find us at the peaceful end of town, nestled between 3 farms at the foothills of the Catskills and Adirondack Mountains. You will fall asleep to the sound of a donkey’s bray, a peacock's call and the ribbit of a bullfrog. We are family owned and operated, have an amazing staff whose job it is to make your stay OUTSTANDING, friendly fellow campers and sparkling facilities. All this makes Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground the #1 place to camp in Central New York.

However long you stay with us, it will not be enough. There is so much to do in and around Cooperstown. We are a quick drive to Brewery Ommegang, Glimmerglass Opera House, The Farmers’ Museum, Glimmerglass State Park, Cooperstown Beverage Trail, Fenimore Art Museum, Dreams Park, Otsego Lake Cruises, Howe Caverns, museums, historic sights, incredible restaurants, award winning golf courses, and so, so much more!

If you don’t believe me when I tell you how amazing it is at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground, check out our reviews.
