Four state boat launches offer public access to the Seneca River. These include the Mud Lock launch located in the Town of Aurelius, the Howland Island launch in the Town of Conquest, the Mosquito Point Bridge launch in the Town of Mentz, and the Bonta Bridge launch in the Town of Brutus. Photos, directions and additional information for each of these launches is available by clicking on their links above.
The Seneca River, part of the NYS Barge Canal System, and part of the original Erie Canal System, stretches for miles from the City of Geneva in Ontario County, located at the northern end of Seneca Lake, to the Village of Phoenix in Oswego County, where its waters combine with the Oneida and Oswego Rivers to flow north into the great Lake Ontario. Canoeing on the Seneca River provides a relatively quiet, peaceful experience; however, one should be aware that the river is frequented by motorized boats coming from and going to any one of the number of Finger Lakes that drain into the Seneca.
