Nancy Lake


The Nancy Lake State Recreational Site (SRS) is located south of the Parks Highway at mile 66.5 and encompasses 35.59 acres, which is managed and maintained by State Parks. In 1968, a boat launch and camping facility was developed at the SRS. Over the years, continued heavy use resulted in substantial wear and damage to the parking area and boat dock at the outdated facility. Additionally, the two non-ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible pit toilets servicing the area were in a state of disrepair and positioned in a poor location on a hillside away from the launch area. This project was designed to help rehabilitate the Nancy Lake SRS boating access facility to accommodate use by recreational boaters and sport anglers.

The objective of this project was to replace the boat dock, resurface the parking area and replace the pit toilets with a State Department of Conservation (DEC) approved and ADA accessible vault toilet.


The project was completed in August 2002. The new accessible boat dock offers quicker and safer launches and retrievals. The improved parking area allows for more orderly parking, better drainage, and helps to diminish wet, muddy conditions in the lot. The new vault toilet provides much easier and better access for all users, is more spacious and pleasant to use, and is easier to maintain.
