General Information

Description - New York has an abundance of water resources. The U.S Army Corps of Engineers manage some waterways such as the Erie Canalway Project and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation maintains an extensive system of parks that incorporate lakes and riversides.

Attractions - Oceanside parks, river access, and beautiful lake settings all await the visitor to a lake in New York. Campsites and boat launches enable weekend or longer visits and water sports.

Recreation - Camping, fishing, water sports of all types, picnick sites, hunting and wildlife viewing are some of the many forms of recreation available on New York lakes

Climate - New York experiences four distinct seasons, with spring and fall being the most pleasant times to travel through the region. Humidity in the southeastern areas of the state can make summer travel uncomfortable, although many festivals and special events occur during that season. Summer highs in the lower elevations of New York usually don't surpass 90 degrees F. Thunderstorms occur a few times a week and can bring needed relief from the heat. During the fall and spring humidity levels drop with temperatures and make for pleasantly mild traveling weather. Fall brings brilliant color changes in the leaves and spring bring blooming flowers to all regions of the state. Winter travel can be hazardous as the western portion of the state receives extreme amounts of snow. Debilitating ice storms hit the southeastern portion of the state as often as snow. Although the major highways are usually clear soon after snow, in time to reach the ski resorts in northern New York.

Location - Maps and driving directions to each New York lake or park are available on the individual wildernet pages describing the site.
