Relaxing Owasco Lake

Auburn, NY, United States
3 Kudos
After being invited up by friends one summer, a trip to the Finger Lakes in New York has become an annual tradition for us. We have had the pleasure of being able to spend the last few summers staying right on the shoreline of Owasco Lake.

Owasco Lake is a small finger lake by finger lake standards, but a big beautiful lake. Whether boating, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, or just watching the sun set over the lake, it is such a quiet and peaceful place. It is the most relaxing vacation I take all year.

As we get ready to head back again this year, I am reminded of just how great it is to spend a lazy day by the Owasco lake with a beverage in hand and worry about nothing. I can’t wait to get back!
