Things To Do While In The Gaylord Area!

Keeping the kids happy can make or break a vacation, but when visiting Otsego County, boredom is never a consideration. When the weather won’t cooperate or the little ones have just plain run out of things to do, that’s when it’s time to venture out and discover the many attractions that can put smiles back on their faces.

  • Elk Viewing – Either in the Pigeon River State Forest or Aspen Park in the city limits you’re sure to see these massive beautiful creatures.
  • Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve – The preserve is located on the site of an old lumber camp and the remnants of the camp and sawmill are located on the property. 
  • Otsego County Sportsplex, where the kids and grownups can swim in an Olympic-size pool or rent a pair of skates an take to the ice for “wintertime” fun, even as the sidewalks are sizzling outside.
  • Travel the Bear Trail printable map – View the creative talents of local artists as you “hunt ” for these 4’ tall bears located throughout the city. Each bear has been purchased and decorated by a local business or group as a fundraiser for the Otsego Wildlife Legacy Society.
  • Downtown History Walking Tour – Enjoy the fresh air and great history of Gaylord on this self guided walking tour.
  • Fall Color Tours – Our high elevation creates some never ending views that you won’t want to miss. Choose one of our color tours or stop in our Gaylord Information Center for a free map of the area and plan your own.
  • Energy Outlet – a quaint park filled with slides, swings and climbing equipment. Throughout the park are structures embedded with information and etchings of the dinosaur age, and surrounding all the fun stuff is a paved walking track.
