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.


Species include smallmouth bass, yellow perch, rock bass, walleye, Northern pike, bullhead, whitefish.
