MOUNT MORRIS — Visit LivCo, Livingston County’s official tourism promotion agency, has opened LivCo Basecamp, a visitor information center, in Mount Morris.

The site at 4 O'Connell Ave. will serve as a social and community gathering space designed to welcome and inspire visitors and locals alike.

A grand opening celebration is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 8 during the village's Glory Day community festival. The Basecamp opened Saturday, June 1.

Tourism officials said the focus of Basecamp is to provide information about the region, such as maps, things to see and do, where to stay, where to eat, services, where to shop, and how to get somewhere, for visitors and local residents. Amenities include comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi, bicycle racks, indoor and outdoor restrooms, and picnic tables.

"We're thrilled to open LivCo Basecamp as a first-of-its-kind visitor experience in Livingston County," said Livingston County Tourism Director Kelly Burns. "This vibrant space will serve as a hub for exploring all the incredible attractions, outdoor adventures, and authentic experiences on tap throughout our area. Basecamp is designed to inspire and welcome not just visitors, but those who’ve lived here their whole lives, too, providing a central gathering place to discover the hidden gems of our community. Here we’ll welcome, inform, nourish, and entice people to explore Livingston County."

With a central location in downtown Mount Morris, Basecamp is within walking distance of accommodations, shops, and restaurants. It is less than a mile from Interstate 390 and the Mount Morris entrance to Letchworth State Park, “The Grand Canyon of the East.” The Genesee Valley Greenway State Park runs behind the building and is an active corridor for both hikers and bikers.
Visit LivCo will share the 2,000-square-foot LivCo Basecamp building with Sweet Arts Bakery. Known for their quality baked goods and cinnamon rolls, Sweet Arts Bakery is updating its menu and expanding from its original Main Street Geneseo location with this new presence in Mount Morris.

Visit LivCo’s mission is to drive economic growth through travel, and increase the number of annual visitors and overnight stays in the County. The agency’s many programs and projects are designed to promote economic development and enhance the quality of life in Livingston County through tourism. Learn more at
