Participation in a Cooperstown Dreams Park Tournament can be the
highlight of your young ballplayer's baseball career. In addition to explaining why
you should stay at Beaver Valley, I offer a few tips to make the experience
a little less stressful.
Why You Should Stay at Beaver Valley:
We have free Wi-Fi
throughout the campground.
We really are less than 5 minutes from the Dreams Park. And
we're less than 5 minutes to a grocery store, restaurants, fast food, pizza, Chinese
take-out, ATM machine, small department store, mini-golf, etc. If you forget the
sunblock or want to take a quick dip in the pool between games, you can just bop up the
hill in no time.
We have a lot of recreational things to do for the whole family:
heated & newly renovated pool, kiddie pool, timber playground, fenced preschool play
area, basketball, tetherball, volleyball, game room, ping pong, paddle boat, row boat,
bass fishing, fossil pit, protected beaver and heron habitat, walking paths, hikes through
the woods, campfire rings.
We also have our own ballfields so if you don't get enough baseball at the Dreams Park
you can always catch a game or two here! We run a baseball training camp for 2 weeks
in July or August. If you have a ballplayer not participating in the tourney, you
can sign him up for a day or a week of camp. (Visit http://www.CooperstownBaseball.com/training.htm)
We have room for the whole team. We have six 2- bedroom units
and thirteen 1-bedroom units all with private bath and kitchen. Having a fully
equipped kitchen can help save money on meals. Each unit also has a picnic
table and a campfire ring.
If there are some families on a tight budget, we have rustic 1-room cabins for just
$350 per week.
We also have campsites next to the Log Cabin Trailers in case some of your families own
RVs. We also have secluded, wooded campsites in case you don't want to be near each
other!! Some sites are right on the pond.
We are licensed to operate. A few years ago, the New York State
Department of Health and County and local Code Enforcement Officials found over 60
accommodations properties operating illegally throughout the area. Violations
included drinking water, septic, pool operations, fire safety, code violations, etc.
It takes more to run an accommodation than just a pretty face.
We receive a year to year permit to operate as a campground, temporary residence and
children's camp through the New York State Department of Health. We test our
drinking water daily, our pool water 3 times a day. We have 3 surprise inspections
throughout the season. All of our buildings and facilities are inspected by the
Department of Health and the Otsego County Code Enforcement office before we are allowed
to accept guests. The Otsego County Code Enforcement Office conducts a fire and safety
inspection of our property once a year.
Not only are we inspected by governmental agencies, we are inspected and rated yearly
by AAA and various camping and travel organizations.
