The Chamber of Commerce is a nationally and internationally recognized organization created to assist businesses, organizations and individuals. This is accomplished by providing programs and services that enhance the economic climate and the quality of life for the citizens of the community.  The Boonville Area Chamber of Commerce was incorporated 1961, although it existed for many years prior to its official formation.

 

The Chamber of Commerce is comprised of volunteers of business people and individuals working together to improve the business climate, civic interests and the quality of life for the citizens of our area and the surrounding communities.

The Chamber is a not-for-profit organization supported primarily by membership dues and through fundraising efforts. Our membership includes individuals, businesses and organizations from Oneida, Lewis and Herkimer Counties, and throughout New York State.

Welcome to Boonville, NY 

This 200-year--old rural community is nestled in the divide between the Mohawk and Black River on the southeastern portion of the Tug Hill Plateau and the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. It is a natural center for the sportsman, historian, nature-lover or photographer, fishing, hunting, swimming skiing, snowmobiling, camping, golf, ATV trails or just quiet relaxation- all are here at hand or within a short drive.

 

There is a season and adventure for everyone! With an average annual snowfall of 200+ inches, winter sports play a big role in Boonville's way of life. Home to the NYS Snowmobile Races. 


There are hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails maintained by area snowmobile clubs.  Boonville's rail system connects with neighboring communities making it possible to travel from the western edge of Tug Hill to the Forestport - Old Forge area in the Adirondacks.

 

Black River Environmental Improvement Association BREIA has constructed and professionally grooms over 30 miles of cross-country ski trails. The trails go along the picturesque Boonville Gorge and high atop Jackson Hill.  They are open to the public and free of charge. During the summer months the trails are used for hiking and biking.

Alpine Skiers have their choice of three top-notch ski areas within a half hour drive from Boonville - Snow Ridge located in Turin, NY, Woods Valley in Westernville, NY and McCauley Mountain in Old Forge, NY
