Owasco Lake, unlike the other Finger Lakes, is almost completely surrounded by agricultural land. You can drive around the entire lake in 45 minutes. On your way home catch a movie at the Finger Lakes Drive-In.
City of Auburn (north end)
Swim or paddle at Emerson Park. Catch a show at Merry-go-Round Playhouse. Visit the museum-homes of Harriet Tubman, William Henry Seward. Tour the beautiful Willard Memorial Chapel, an extremely rare example of the work of Louis C. Tiffany and Tiffany Glass and Decoration Co. in that it is the only complete and unaltered Tiffany chapel known to exist.
Morovia (south end)
While not on the lake, Fillmore Glen State Park has a stream-fed swimming pool. Visit the birthplace of our 13th President, Millard FIllmore. Hike the Owasco Flats Nature Preserve at the south end. There is also a car-top boat launch here in addition to Southshore Marina.
