Gee Brook State Forest encompasses 878 acres. It is a small but popular area that offers a variety of recreational activities including hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, bird watching, nature viewing and snowmobiling. Gee Brook is named for the beautiful sparkling creek that gently flows through the peaceful forest.

Informal foot trails are located along the stream and ponds. There are also two Public Forest Access Roads (Ace of Spades Rd. and Calico Pond Rd.) that provide entry into each of the respective north and south portions of the property. Nature observers and hunters can also enjoy the many species of plants and animals throughout this heavily forested area.

Camping is allowed at Calico Pond at designated sites, by permit only. Permits are available through the forest ranger or the Cortland DEC office, call 607-674-4017. The access bridge leading to Calico Pond over Gee Brook no longer provides vehicular access, although it is maintained as a foot bridge. An informational map of the camping area and its three camping sites is available.
