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

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.

Spiny waterflea, an invasive species of zooplankton has been found in certain waters in Saratoga County. This species can be easily spread to uninfected waters by anglers and boaters who do not properly dry or disinfect their boating and fishing equipment after using it in an infected water. Guidance on drying and disinfecting boating and fishing gear can be found on the DEC website.
