Boat launch opens at Hinckley Reservoir


UTICA — The New York Power Authority’s boat launch at the Hinckley Reservoir, along with the site’s fishing access area, has opened for the 2019 season, the agency announced.

Directional and warning buoys by the power dam spillway are in place.

Located along the north side of the reservoir on Route 365, the boat launch was built in 1985 as a recreational measure in connection with the construction of its Gregory B. Jarvis small-hydro power plant.

Open daily during the boating season, the launch consists of concrete planks extending 200 feet into the reservoir to permit easy access for boaters.

The launch will remain open as long as reservoir conditions remain safe for boating.
