|Kayuta Lake is
located on the way to Old Forge. The paddle is
through a series of small lakes and the Black
River. (See Map Directions Below). Be
sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle
and have all appropriate equipment. A spray
skirt would be helpful.
Directions from Syracuse: Take the NYS
Thruway east from Syracuse to Exit 33 which is Route
365. This is also the exit for the Turning Stone
Casino. Take Route 365 toward Rome, NY. There are
several turns as Route 365 goes around Rome, so
watch for the Route 365 signs. Continue on Route
365. You will be going through Holland Patent and
Barneveld. Route 365 takes a left turn in Barneveld.
Continue through Barneveld to Routes 12 & 28
North. Take Routes 12 & 28 North toward Old
Forge. Just past the Kayuta Kwick n E-Z on your
right, Routes 12 & 28 split (Note: This Kwick n
E-Z is now closed). Take Route 28 toward Old Forge.
About one tenth of a mile past this intersection you
will see a highway department storage dome on the
left. On the right opposite this dome you will see
State Dam Road. Follow State Dam Road about one mile
to the launch point. The road is bumpy, so go slow.
The GPS coordinates of the launch point are N43°
25.362 and W075° 12.454.
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.
