Seneca-Lake is the deepest of all the Finger Lakes, plummeting 618 feet below the surface, and is known as Ontario County's waterway connection to the world (due to its accessibility to the Erie Canal and St. Lawrence Seaway.) It's located in the center of the state, in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region. Outdoor activities abound in the Seneca Lake area, including swimming, fishing, canoeing, snorkeling, water skiing, kayaking and white-water rafting. If you prefer to stay on dry land, the Seneca Lake region has plenty for you, also. Choose from hiking, rock climbing, biking, hang-gliding, downhill or cross-country skiing and snowboarding. Several 18-hole golf courses are located around the lake and the Finger Lakes region is considered the Wine Country of New York, with many wineries that offer tours. You can easily spend several days just exploring the charming towns and villages in the Seneca Lake area, visiting antique stores and farmer's markets, or attending a county festival. With so much to choose from, it's no wonder the Finger Lakes Region was ranked 8th in Travel and Leisure Magazine's "100 Great Escapes for 2002." The magazine cited the wineries, canoeing and swimming and antiquing in the region as some of the top draws for visitors. Of historical interest, the village of Seneca Falls is known as the "birthplace of women's rights," and home to the Women's Rights National Historical Park, which features a 30 minute orientation film Dreams of Equality," a museum and interactive exhibits with visual displays.

Seneca Lake Weather & Climate

The Finger Lakes Region is bounded by Lake Ontario to the north and the state of Pennsylvania to the south. Precipitation in the region ranges from less than 36 inches to approximately 40 inches of rain and snowmelt. The lakes act as a moderator of the air temperature. The greater the volume of water, the more time it will take for the air to heat up in the summertime, and in winter, the heat the lakes have retained all summer is slowly released, moderating temps along the shoreline. Communities along the lakeshores will be warmer in winter and cooler in the summer compared to areas further away from the shore. This accounts for the successful vineyards in the Finger Lakes region. As the lake gives out heat in the late fall and early winter, the vineyards have an extended growing season. In addition, the weather in spring heats up more slowly than other areas of the state.
