Jake’s Livery & Boat Launch Information for Hammondsport / South Keuka Lake
“Where can I launch my boat?” is one of the top 10 questions we receive here in the Hammondsport Visitor Center during the summer. You may have heard that the Keuka Lakeside Inn Boat Launch in the village of Hammondsport is no longer available to the public, but fear not! We recently visited Jake’s Livery located at 12792 West Lake Rd., Hammondsport (Route 54A) and asked the owners to tell us about their boat launch and what they can offer vacationers and residents on Keuka Lake this summer.
The boat launch fee is only $7 any day of the week. To launch your boat, simply pull into the driveway directly across the street from Jake’s and back your boat into the water before paying inside. If you need assistance launching your boat, just let one of the employees know! While the parking lot at Jake’s is somewhat limited, there is plenty of overflow parking just a half-mile up the road for just $5 on weekdays and $10 on the weekend. They also offer transportation to and from the overflow parking lot. In addition to the boat launch, Jake’s has a gas pump for boaters.
We will be publishing updates about the progress of a potential Hammondsport village boat launch on our website in the coming months. The best way to stay informed is to subscribe to the Hammondsport newsletter at hammondsport.org/newsletter, thank you!
