  • Miscellaneous Info
Closest of the Finger Lakes to the City of Syracuse, the lake is extremely popular in the summer and experiences a population explosion every Memorial Day. On the first day of bass season, usually around the end of the second week in June, the lake fills with boats for the annual fishing derby. Campsites and houses are available for rent, and there is a county park for public use. The Otisco Lake link below mentions three public boat launching sites. There is also a commercial marina on the east side. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "the lake is affected by nonpoint source pollution from agriculture (pesticide and fertilizer use, manure production, and sedimentation resulting from poor tillage practices), residential land use (septic systems, lawncare, and construction), and streambank erosion." Currently the lake is experiencing severe problems brought on by zebra mussels which have come into the water via boaters. Swimmers should wear appropriate footwear as the mussels can be quite sharp.
