Welcome to Potter County - "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. We find great joy in exploration and discovery, and in cultivating relationships between people and the environment. Come visit and enjoy our way of life, if only for a little while.
