  • There is room for 100 boats and trailers 
  • There is a boat pumpout
  • It is a hard ramp

Accessibility features:

  • Per the DEC website, "sites are accessible to the top of the boat ramp, if provided at a site. Parking, as well as other amenities such as bathrooms and informational kiosks, are also accessible. Some sites on larger waters also have accessible boarding docks. Contact your local DEC office for additional details."
