Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
The safety of our employees, volunteers, and guests of Deer Haven Park is our primary concern and continues to drive the decisions we make.
Deer Haven Park’s Regular Majesty & Mystery Bus Tours are currently suspended. We will continue to monitor Governor Cuomo’s phased business reopening plan for the Finger Lakes Region and evaluate a practical re-open date once public bus tours have been cleared.
Private Auto Tours have NOT been suspended. Learn more about our NEW App-Guided Auto Tours!
Home to the Majestic Seneca White Deer.
Located in the heart of the Finger lakes, nestled between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes is the property formerly known as the Seneca Army Depot.
The Seneca Ordnance Depot, later renamed the Seneca Army Depot, was built by the United States Department of Defense in 1941 in response to the beginning of WWII and covered over 10,000 acres of central Seneca County. The Depot was a closed base and served as the US Army's main East Coast munitions storage facility until it was decommissioned in 2000.
Soon thereafter, the property was turned back over to the Seneca County IDA who developed about 3000 acres of the outer fringes to include several businesses, government offices & institutions and industry. In 2016 the remaining 7,000 acres were sold to the newly established business entity, Deer Haven Park, LLC.
Today, after more than 70 years of secrecy and locked gates, Deer haven Park offers a glimpse into this seemingly magical place, with its unique Majestic white deer herd and Mysteriously rich military history.
