    Hi — This story of boat launches being closed needs clarification. If appears that you are referencing a boat launch story in Canandaigua and applying this information to the ADKs. True, most launches are not manned, but they are not closed to public use. Canoe launches are not closed. The DEC is recommending for people to get out and enjoy the outdoors with social distancing. Please reference the DEC site.

      We’ve updated with statement from NYSDEC, but awaiting further clarification, as there is a lot of conflicting information out there!
