Citizens United for Lake Placid is organized
to unite all members so that they may cooperate with each other in all
activities necessary, useful, or expedient to the management and enhancement
of the natural beauty of Lake Placid and to promote the prevention or
elimination of threats to the enjoyment and safety of said lake and that of
the members, by their union, will have greater strength in compelling the
attention and assistance of others to this end.

In addition to the State laws, there are additional ordinances which regulate boating on the hydroelectric lakes. The game wardens only enforce the State laws. The Sherriff’s Dept enforces them all. I have attached copies of the local ordinances. Here are the high points:
No use of wake enhancing devices
Must stay 50 feet from anything when towing
No high performance boats
No boats with sleeping quarters
Maximum boat length of 24’, 28’ for pontoon boats
There is a zero tolerance agreement between the lake groups and law enforcement.
