Keuka Lake is the central lake of the Finger Lakes which are located in Western New York.

Founded in 1956, the Keuka Lake Association, with over 1600 members, provides a unified voice for those who love Keuka Lake.

Our mission is to preserve and protect Keuka Lake and its natural beauty for future generations.

Keuka is a most special Finger Lake because of the unusual 'Y' shape the lake possesses. Keuka Lake's Bluff Point forms the peninsula in the lake giving it this unique shape.

Please join the Keuka Lake Association and help us protect the beauty of Keuka Lake.

Orange Buoys On Keuka Lake Explained!

When boating and angling on Keuka Lake this year, please be on the lookout for fluorescent orange buoys with flags throughout the lake. Solar-powered lights and reflective tape are attached to the buoys so they will also be visible at night. Up to 20 buoys will be located around the lake for two years as part of a research project.
