Saint Regis Canoe Area - Unit Management Plan

The only designated canoe area in New York State, the Saint Regis Canoe Area is an area where the number and proximity of lakes and ponds make possible a remote and unconfined type of water-oriented recreation in an essentially wilderness setting. The area covers 18,400 acres, and includes St. Regis Mountain, St. Regis and Long ponds, sections of the east and west branches of the St. Regis River, and 56 other waterbodies. The area also offers excellent opportunities for hiking, cross-country skiing, hunting and fishing.

For a description of recreational opportunities in the unit, please visit the Saint Regis Canoe Area recreation page.

Status of the UMP

The Department adopted a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Saint Regis Canoe Area in 2006. If you have questions about the UMP, please e-mail us at:
