Approximately 6-8 Miles
Launch Time 1:00 PM
Note Change:  We will meet at the boat launch.

Oneida Shores is an Onondaga County Park located on the southern shore of Oneida Lake. We will meet at 1:00 PM in boat launch parking area at Oneida Shores County Park. There may be a fee for entering the park. We will be paddling out onto the lake and and then west into the Oneida River. Paddlers should be advised that the paddle is located where boat traffic may be heavy. Also, since there is a large amount of open water, weather conditions should be reviewed prior to participating if your paddling experience in heavier water or wind conditions is limited. If it is windy, we will paddle along the shore and into the bays. Be sure to bring your spray skirt. Also, be sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all appropriate equipment.

Directions from Syracuse: From Syracuse, take Route 81 north and get off at the Brewerton exit. At the end of the exit ramp, turn left onto Bartell Road and proceed approximately .8 miles to the park entrance. There is an admissions fee to enter the park.

Please Note: Directions for each trip are provided to help people unfamiliar with the area to find the location of the trip. They are not meant to necessarily be the most direct route from your own location.
