New York's Mossy Point, Rogers Rock Launches to be Closed Overnight


The gates at the Mossy Point and Rogers Rock Boat Launches on Lake George will be closed overnight this boating season as part of the Lake George Park Commission’s (LGPC) Boat Inspection Program and DEC’s efforts to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species.

Beginning May 21, an LGPC Vessel Inspection Team will be present at Mossy Point Boat Launch from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. to inspect boats, trailers, and equipment for the presence of aquatic invasive species and to educate boaters of the importance of Clean, Drain, and Dry. The gate to the boat launch site will be closed and locked when the team leaves at night and reopened in the morning when the team returns.

A callbox is located next to the door of the Lake George Park Commission shed at each of the boat launches. Boaters who do not get off the water until after the gate is closed can use the callbox. Calls will go directly to the DEC Emergency Dispatch. A DEC Dispatcher will provide the caller with instructions for opening the gate. The callboxes were provided by the Fund for Lake George.

LGPC’s Vessel Inspection Team will be present from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mossy Point Boat Launch as the days lengthen in June. Overnight closure of the gate at the Rogers Rock Boat Launch will begin when the campground opens and Vessel Inspection Teams will start at 8 a.m.
