Located along the north side of the reservoir on Route 365, the New York Power Authority built the boat launch in 1985 as a recreational measure in connection with the construction of its Gregory B. Jarvis small-hydro power plant.

Open daily during daylight hours for the boating season, the launch consists of concrete planks extending 250 feet into the reservoir to permit easy access for boaters.

The launch will remain open as long as reservoir conditions remain safe for boating.
