Canandaigua Lake, the fourth largest among the Finger Lakes of New York State, measures 15.5 miles (24.9 kilometers) long and 1-mile (1.6 kilometers) wide. It provides 70,000 residents with drinking water and is home to Squaw Island, one of the only two islands on Finger Lakes. It’s New York’s littlest Fish and Wildlife Management area and one of the rare places where oncolites (water biscuits) thrive. Tourists can rent a kayak, water bike, or canoe and paddle their way to the island. On the northern shores of the lake are the summer houses of millionaires. Drop by and see why Humphrey Bogart, the popular movie actor of Casablanca, spent several summers on this lake.
