Attention Boaters and Anglers
Spiny water flea, an invasive zooplankton species, has been confirmed in Lake Champlain. Please help us prevent further spread of this species in the Adirondacks by:
- Completely drying fishing equipment and all water-holding compartments of your boat.
- Decontaminating fishing equipment and all water-holding compartments with hot water (at least 140° F).
If drying or decontaminating are not possible, thoroughly flush your boat and equipment with water free of water fleas in an area that will not drain into the waterbody you will be boating on.

Boat Launch Types
Use the following definitions to help you determine if a particular site will accommodate your boat:
Hard surface launch - Site affords float-off and float-on launching for most trailered boats.
Unimproved trailer launch - No float-off or float-on trailered boat capability. Sites will accommodate the approach to the water's edge of small and light trailered boats. Boat may then be pushed on or off trailer. Usually shallow areas.
Hand launch - No trailer capacity. Boats must be hand carried to the water.
Accessible Features - Locations are identified above. 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. See a full listing of DEC's Accessible Recreation Destinations.
