Horicon Boat Launch - Unit Management Plan

The Horicon Boat Launch is located along Warren County Route 62 (Glendale Road) and County Route 15 (East Shore Drive) in the Town of Horicon. The facility was reconstructed in 1988 and the parking area was paved in 1990. The only subsequent improvement to the site occurred in 2011 when a ramp extension was added. The launch provides access to the southern end of Schroon Lake just north of the hamlet of Pottersville near exit 26 off Interstate 87. At 17 acres, the Horicon Boat Launch is the largest public boat launch on Schroon Lake.

Status of the UMP

The Department adopted a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Horicon Boat Launch in 2016. If you have questions regarding the UMP, please contact us at
