Boat Launch Sites for Genesee 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.

Note: Use the following definitions to help you determine if a particular site will accommodate your boat.

  • Hard surface or concrete ramp--site affords float-off and float-on launching for most trailered boats.
  • Beach launch--no float-off or float-on trailered boat capability. Sites will accommodate the approach to the water's edge of small and light trailered boats. Boat may then be pushed on or off trailer. Usually shallow areas.
  • Hand launch--no trailer capacity. Boats must be hand carried to the water.
  • Car top launch--For canoe/kayak launching. Limited parking available.
