A boat launch is located within the park. To travel to the park take the Northway (I-87) to Exit 17S to South Glens Falls, Then follow the signs to the park. There is a fee to access the park, and no motors are permitted on the lake. There is parking for 10 cars and trailers.

Fish Species:

Largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, brown bullhead, chain pickerel, pumpkinseed and rainbow trout.


Moreau Lake has excellent fishing for both largemouth bass and rainbow trout that are stocked by the county. Because of its depth it provides a refuge for the trout during the hot summer days. On the northern end of the lake, it becomes relatively shallow and weedy which provides for good largemouth and pickerel habitat.

Ice Fishing:

Ice fishing is permitted on Moreau Lake.


Special fishing regulations apply (leaving DEC website to official Fishing Regulations Guide vendor website).
