Boat Launch Sites for Warren County

DEC manages over 395 boating and fishing access facilities. We do our best to keep these sites clean and safe, but if you see something that is out of order or have a question or concern about a particular site, send a message to fwboat@dec.ny.gov.

For an explanation of the recreational icons on this page, see below.

Attention Boaters and Anglers

Spiny water flea, an invasive zooplankton species, has been confirmed in Lake George. Please help us prevent further spread of this species in the Adirondacks by:

  1. Completely drying fishing equipment and all water-holding compartments of your boat.
  2. Decontaminating fishing equipment and all water-holding compartments with hot water (at least 140° F).

If drying or decontaminating are not possible, thoroughly flush your boat and equipment with water free of water fleas in an area that will not drain into the waterbody you will be boating on.

Attention Lake George Boaters and Anglers: Regulations require the registration of all watercraft via day use or seasonal permit. All trailered boats must also be certified free of aquatic invasive species. Contact the Lake George Park Commission at (518) 668-9347 or visit Lake George Park Commission's website (leaves DEC website).
