Cuba Lake

Cuba, NY

Cuba Lake is located north of the Village of Cuba, in western Allegany County. It is a man-made lake that was created in 1858 as a source of water for the Genesee Valley Canal system. In the winter, Cuba Lake’s water level is drawn down 6 – 8 feet. Public boating access is provided at the DEC boat launch site off West Shore Road, near the Rawson Creek inlet. A hand launch into the creek itself can accommodate canoes and kayaks. Trailered boats can launch at the main launch, which is equipped with a concrete ramp and floating docks. Parking is available for 24 cars with trailers and 10 additional cars. Access for ice fishing anglers is provided at the south end of the dam on South Shore Road.
