About Cayuta Lake Camping
Cayuta Lake Camping was founded in 1981 by Patricia George. She owned and operated the camp for 30 years, something she enjoyed doing. It has since been passed down to her grandaughter and her family to continue the legacy that Pat had started. This camp is a small family-owned and operated campground just a short boat ride down the canal from Cayuta lake.
If you're looking for an inexpensive way to re-connect and leave the daily grind behind, then you have come to the right place. New York is known for it starry skies and relaxing by a campfire- a sure way to gather family for some quality marshmallow roasting. Children can get in touch with the outdoors and learn about nature up close and personal. Leave the cell phones, laptops and videogames behind!! You won't need them.
Cayuta Lake is a small lake, located in Schuyler County, New York, USA. The lake is within the Town of Catharine and is linked to the Susquehanna River by Cayuta Creek, which flows out the south end of the lake. A major feeder stream for Cayuta Lake is Cayuta Lake Inlet, which enters the lake through a marsh area on the north end. Much of this northern shore of the lake is within the Allen Preserve.
The area of the lake is about 588 acre (238 ha), and it is about 2 mi (3 km) long.
The lake is also referred to locally as "Little Lake". By legend the lake is named after a Seneca princess, who was kidnapped by another tribe, causing her mother's tears to form the lake. An older spelling, still sometimes used, is "Kayutah".
Much of the shoreline is private property, but a public boat launch is available.
