Long Lake Area Boat Launches

Overview Map

The following designations are used to indicate the agency that operates a particular boat launch site. Boaters should expect to pay a day use fee for launches within a DEC Campground during the camping season.

  • (D) - DEC
  • (P) - Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation
  • (C) - Canal Corporation

    The following definitions will assist you in determining 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.

    Note: Boaters and Anglers, please remember that you can help prevent the spread of unwanted aquatic plant and animal species by following these guidelines:

  • Remove all mud and aquatic plants from all gear, boats, motors and trailers before departing from your fishing location
  • Drain all water including bilges, live wells, and bait tanks before departing from your fishing location
  • Do not transport fish from one body of water to another
  • Do not release unused bait into a body of water
  • Do not dispose of fish carcasses or by-products in any body of water
