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.

Protect you Pets from toxic algae

Reports of dogs getting sick or dying after swimming in ponds, lakes, and streams are more common during the summer months. Please share with your friends and family to prevent more tragedies for happening.

Dogs can be exposed to toxins by skin contact with water contaminated with cyanobacteria or toxin(s), when swallowing water while playing in the water, or by licking it off fur or hair. If you suspect your dog has been exposed to a toxic algal bloom, please seek immediate veterinary care.

Below are useful resources on what are harmful algal blooms, how dogs can be affected, and how to protect your pet from toxins.
