Oneida Lake boat launch closed temporarily

Published Oct 19, 2018 at 4:00pm

The South Shore boat launch site on the southern shore of Oneida Lake, east of Bridgeport in the town of Sullivan, Madison County, will be closed for up to eight days that began Thursday for driveway repaving, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation announced.

Alternative launch sites include private marinas within four miles of the South Shore site where fee launching is available. Farther west, boaters can use the launch at Oneida Shores Onondaga County Park on Bartell Road in Brewerton. An additional alternative is DEC's Godfrey Point boat launch on the north shore of Oneida Lake in Oneida County, approximately two miles east of the village of Cleveland.
