Bobell State Forest, also known as Chenango Reforestation Areas #10 & 30, is located in the Towns of Coventry and Greene in Chenango County. The two adjacent forests contain 2156 acres. The areas are soon to be included with nearby forests in the development of a draft unit management plan. The forests were purchased with Hewitt Amendment funds in the 1930's and most of the trees were planted by the Civil Conservation Corps during the 1930's.

The forests were named after early settlers named Bobell or Bowbell. The soils proved to be somewhat poor for farming, having shallow depths to hard pan and a tendency to be seasonably wet. These soil characteristics still present challenges to some forest management and recreational activities.
