Lake Access
Did you know that the Town of Scipio has two access points to Owasco Lake for use by town residents?
The town has a boat launching area near the end of Ensenore Road. This area is available for any town resident who needs a place to put his/her boat in or out of the lake. A quick dip, of course, is also an option on a hot summer day!

A second access point is located at the end of fire lane 26 and is a swimming and picnic area for town residents, open dawn 'til dusk. While small, this area is perfect for a quick dip or lazy summer afternoon. It is a small area and parking is limited, so please be respectful of neighbors when using this public space.
