Roscoe New York is a hamlet (and census-designated place) in Sullivan County, New York, United States. The population was 541 at the 2010 census.
Roscoe is in the southwest part of the Town of Rockland, adjacent to New York State Route 17.
It is named for New York Senator Roscoe Conkling. Roscoe calls itself “Trout Town, USA.” The town is a destination for fly-fishing enthusiasts because of its location at the intersection of two rivers famous for trout fishing (the Beaver Kill and the Willowemoc Creek).
The community is a popular stopping point for people traveling along Route 17 (between New York City and Binghamton, New York) because the facilities are right by the access road to the highway. These include gas stations and convenience stores, and, of course, the Roscoe Diner. We discovered a fabulous restaurant on our journey. We wouldn’t be surprised if people travel in from miles around just go to the Rockland House Restaurant. We also enjoyed a fabulous stay at the adjoining motel. We were out all night doing milky way photography and rolled in for a good night’s sleep around 1 a.m. This very quiet and spotless motel is run by great management. Check out the photos of the salad bar and the serene area of the motel. This motel is often used by people in town fishing and or hunting. We immensely enjoyed our stay.
