About Otis

If you want to take a trip back in time when life offered a gentler pace, you'll want to explore Otis. This largely unspoiled, rural area is the site of the Otis Reservoir, the largest recreational body of water in Massachusetts. You can rent a canoe to tour the shoreline, or rent a boat and motor for fishing. For the avid trout fisherman, the nearby Farmington River is famous for its stock. There is a state forest which offers camping opportunities, or trailer camps for your RV, or a variety of bed and breakfast establishments.

Despite its delightfully preserved "backwoods" character, Otis has several good restaurants and fascinating shops that have retained their historic flavor. You can even find a post office that still uses the original bronze post boxes of its 19th century origins. Otis' most wonderful treasure, however, is the friendliness and warmth of her people.
