Seneca County is in the western part of New York in the Finger Lakes Region of the state.  The county is bounded on the west by Seneca Lake and on the east by Cayuga Lake.  A small portion of the Finger Lakes National Forest is located in the southern part of the county.  The county has three state parks.

The 2008 estimated population of Seneca County was 34,086. The highest point in the county is an elevation of 1640 feet, located in Finger Lakes National Forest just east of where the Interloken Trail crosses Seneca Road along the border with Schuyler County. Finger Lakes National Forest is a great outdoor recreational area worth exploring.

A small section of the Northern Montezuma WMA is located in northeastern part of Seneca County. A part of the Erie Canal travels through the northern part of the county.  The county seat is Waterloo. Whitlock and Bishop Nature Preserves are owned by the Finger Lakes Land Trust. Be sure to visit the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge while you are in the area.
