NYPA Offers Boating Access to Reservoirs and Waterways

The Hinckley boat launch is currently closed

The Hinckley boat launch is currently closed due to low water levels that make conditions unsafe for boat launching.  The nearby canoe and kayak launch area will remain open. NYPA will continue to monitor the reservoir until the water depth returns to safe levels for launching, at which point the reopening of the boat launch will be announced.

The Hinckley Boat Launch is open seasonally, typically from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Water elevations play a vital role in the operation of the Hinckley Boat Launch. Low water may result in unsafe launching conditions which would cause NYPA to temporarily close the launch until the elevation rises to a level ensuring the safe launching or removal of boats.
