OCMP North: The Orleans County public boat launch is located at the mouth of the Oak Orchard River and accessed by vehicle on Ontario Street at the north end of Point Breeze Rd./Route 98. Transient docking is available to the north of the launch on the river. Public parking, restrooms, information kiosk and the Oak Orchard Lighthouse Museum are features of the OCMP North.
Oak Orchard River State Boat Launch: In 2010, the Orleans County Legislature signed a permit from the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation allowing the county to operate the Oak Orchard State Boat Launch on the west side of Oak Orchard River. The launch is accessible on Archbald Road off Route 18, Waterport. The county is responsible for maintaining the grounds and restrooms.
Launching/parking fee is $6.00. This is on the honor system enforced by our County Sheriff Department and Marine Patrol, and backed up with a fine for non-payment. The parking area closes at 11 pm each night so there is no overnight parking.
