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.

Anglers can look forward to four new annual Free Fishing Days in New York State. The next  dates are:

The requirement for a fishing license is waived on these days, so it’s the perfect time to introduce someone to the sport or invite friends or family from out of state.


DEC & Commercial Septic Systems

The KLA is on the record of not supporting any action that would permit the discharge of an estimated 5395 gallons of partially treated waste water per day into Keuka Lake. We have Foiled the NYS DEC for the application documents and provided them to the Keuka Watershed Improvement Cooperative (KWIC). We believe that every resident of Keuka Lake who values its pristine waters should be informed and make their own decision to comment on this application during the DEC’s open comment period which runs until June 22, 2018.
