Just 23 miles west of Syracuse, Skaneatele lake averages about 3/4 of a mile wide and stretching 16 miles in length. The sixth largest of the Finger Lakes, Skaneateles Lake is exceptionally beautiful and serene.
Skaneateles Lake is very popular for sailing and other recreational boating. Environmental controls are relatively strong, though, because the lake is a water source for the surrounding towns, so public boat launches are few.
