6 Things We Love About Roscoe, New York
Sullivan County, the spotlight is on you this week! Our new Hometown of the Week is Roscoe, New York. For a small Sullivan County hamlet, there sure is a lot to love about Roscoe.
For all the anglers out there this may come as no surprise, but Roscoe is home to some of the best trout fishing in the United States. Roscoe is known as Trout Town USA and according to the Town of Roscoe's website:
"Roscoe has been known internationally for decades as Trout Town, USA. Conveniently located about two hours from New York City, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Roscoe is home to five of America’s top trout streams as well as numerous pristine lakes and plentiful reservoirs, making this an angler’s paradise."
I don't know if it's just my family, but the Roscoe Diner is always a topic of conversation on road trips upstate and a must visit on the way.
Of course Roscoe is home to some of the best camping and glamping around. The Roscoe Campsite Park offers several camping options. From RV and cabin rentals to "luxury lodge tents" they have everything for every kind of camper. Not to mention, you'll have access to Catskill Conestoga Wagon Outpost which is 6 miles away in Cooks Falls, but you can camp in a covered wagon. Think Oregon Trail meets Hudson Valley.
Looking for an adult beverage? Roscoe Beer Company and Prohibition Distillery are waiting for you. Prohibition Distillery is housed in the 1929 Roscoe Firehouse and former VFW Hall. Each of their bottles is made with a poppy flower and Florian Cross on them to "toast to the memory of those fallen friends."
