Hello. You may want to post this in the Northeast regional forum. I did a quick search, and found a number of posts about the Finger Lakes there. This Great Lakes forum has most posts about Lake Eirie, then followed by Lake Michigan and the Wisconsin and Michigan state areas, then followed by the rest of the Great Lakes region.

Many years ago when I had some business trips in upstate New York, I was on Lake Seneca. Absolutely gorgeous, as I’d imagine the rest of the Finger Lakes.

By the way, welcome to THT, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

Default New York's Finger Lakes

Family used to have a place on Canandaigua Lake which is beautiful. Water enters the lake at the southern end and flows north to an outlet at the City of Canandaigua. Canandaigua, like the majority of the Finger Lakes is deep and very clear. Clarity is due in no small part to Zebra Mussels being introduced to the waters in the last thirty years. The north end of the lake has a shallow sandy bottom which is popular for anchoring, swimming and partying. There is a restaurant at the south end in Woodville, NY and a few at the north end of the lake.

Seneca Lake is one the largest, longest and the deepest of the New York Finger Lakes stretching from Geneva, NY in the north to Watkins Glen in the south. Not sure if it is still there but approximately midway down the Seneca Lake is a barge anchored. This barge was used in the past as a research facility for deep water hydro sonic experimentation for the US Navy. Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake both connect to the New York State Barge Canal (Erie Canal). Due to its depth Seneca Lake is always cold.

The Finger Lakes are a treasure and pleasure, but can toss up a storm to which need to be respected. The area is full of wineries, and history. Keuka Lake is the home of now defunct Penn Yan boats and the home of Glenn Curtiss and Curtiss aviation. Glenn H. Curtiss Aviation Museum is located at 8419 NY-54, Hammondsport, NY, near Keuka Lake.

Explore the Lakes and the surrounding hills and enjoy this lovely geographic location.
