Carry Falls Reservoir

Carry Falls is the first of many reservoirs created by Brookfield Power on the Raquette River. This rather large body of water is a very mellow paddle, and if it were not for the dam you wouldn’t know it was a manmade feature. From the launch you can paddle upstream (south) for quite some time enjoying the area and maybe even doing a bit of fishing.  

How to get there:

From the intersection of Route 3 and Route 30 in the Village of Tupper Lake follow Route 3 toward Cranberry Lake. Continue to Sevey Corners and take a right onto Route 56. Continue for 13 miles to Stark Road right and then take a right onto Carry Falls Road. The launch will be up on your left.  

Type of launch:

Roadside, less than 100 foot carry down a steep concrete launch

Type of water:

This is large flow of the Raquette River and perfect for all types of paddling. Small motor driven boats may be on the water.
