Welcome to God's Country

They call it "God's Country" and after just one visit, it's easy to see why. Potter County is a haven for those looking to relax and unwind, get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and reconnect with nature. It's also home to the darkest skies and brightest stars in the eastern United States. While we're most famous for our skies, we are down to earth; quirky and authentic; charm not chain; wild yet welcoming; rugged and resourceful.
