About Us

Discover Deer Haven Park!

Located on the east side of Seneca Lake, come tour the former Seneca Army Depot and have a chance to see an American bald eagle and the majestic Seneca white deer in the wild!

Built in 1941, the Seneca Army Depot covered over 10,000 acres of central Seneca County. It was commissioned by the U.S. Department of Defense in response to the beginning of WWII. The Depot was the U.S. Army’s main East Coast munitions storage facility until it was decommissioned in 2000.

After more than 70 years of locked gates and secrecy, Deer Haven Park offers a glimpse into this mystical place and the rare herd of white deer that inhabit its grounds.
