    Well, this is not good! I though the dam fix was going to be this past year. I look forward to better parking; it was pretty bad. But no access for a year and maybe more will put huge pressure on other motorless paddling destinations. DEC has done a poor job having enough camping sites for paddlers.

    I have not seen anything about using the Horseshoe Lake outlet, but it would be quite challenging. It’s a shame that they didn’t come up with a carry to campsite #1. Also, a shame that the parking area isn’t included at this time.

      The outlet from Horseshoe would be viable although challenging early in the season when the water levels are high. I did it 20 plus years ago when the road to the Lower Dam was still closed. I don’t think it would be doable later in the season due to low water.

    I’m glad we got there in late September early October. The weather was beautiful and it was so calm we we’re able to enjoy a nice paddle on Low’s. Going out Sunday we battled a stiff wind the whole way but it was well worth it.
