Keuka Lake is one of my favorites. Plenty of on water restaurants.
The State Park over in Branchport has a great launch for larger boats. Check out the Village Tavern in Hammondsport. Also, when we boated to Hammondsport late last year, they were putting in new municipal dockage. It has needed that for a long time.
The down side to Keuka Lake is the speed limit of 45 mph. That didn't stop us from chasing down that 27' Fountain and running hard for a few miles. Just have to be sensible and the police will not bother you.

I would be up for some kind of a get together. I have not been on any of those lakes, but if they are deep and safe enough I am game.

JB, I still want to make it to Pirates week in Alex Bay!

The finger lakes are some of the best lakes I have seen. One word of caution about Canandaigua Lake, It has a 50 MPH max speed limit and the sheriff loves to check.

I didn't know there was a speed limit on Keuka! Guess I've been lucky . Of course, my boat barely goes over 45, so maybe that's got something to do with it

The finger lakes are plenty deep! The Navy used to test subs in one of them, 700+ feet deep.

If anyone wanted to work their way up to Lake Ontario (no speed limits) I would happily host a get together at my camp on Port Bay (between Fair Haven and Sodus). Only one dock, but anyone willing to raft is welcome.

Brian and fellow OSO'ers,

I plan on trying to get a poker run started for this summer on Sacandaga. It is a big lake with plenty of activity and beautiful places to stop. I have already talked to some of the businesses and they are for it. I will give more details as I get them. Would there be any interest from any of you? Any feed back? Thanks

Chris

The speed limit signs at posted at the launch ramps. As far as I know the only finger lake that has a limit is Canandaigua Lake.
