Honeoye Lake is the most shallow (only 30 ft deep!) and the second smallest of the Finger Lakes. The lake is just 45 minutes from Rochester, and you can drive around the entire lake in 30 minutes. Relax, swim or put in a car-top boat at Sandy Bottom Park on the north shore. There is a boat launch on the east shore at Honeoye Lake Boat Launch State Park. Head up to Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area for one a spectacular view! There is another scenic overlook toward the northeast on NY-20A, but the lake itself isn’t as visible. Like Conesus, the freezes completely in the winter.
