Experience Sylvan Beach

For summer vacation or weekend getaways, Sylvan Beach is the place to be

Oneida Lake in Upstate NY is full of fun things to do this summer

Ever have those days when the beach is calling your name so loudly you just want to hang out the "Gone Swimming" sign and head to the lake? Here in Central New York, we have a word for that. Summer. And there's no better place to spend it than at Sylvan Beach on Oneida Lake.

At nearly 80 square miles, Oneida Lake is the largest lake fully inside New York. And this year, there are quite a few new things to do in Sylvan Beach - plus an exciting new family-friendly place to stay - that comes with its own pontoon boat. (You read that right). Take a look at all there is to experience at Sylvan Beach with lake season underway.

What's better than a week at the lake in your own waterfront cottage?

A cottage vacation rental that comes with a boat at The Cove at Sylvan Beach, NY

The newest place to stay on Oneida Lake is the talk of the town, and already has its sights set on becoming the family destination of choice in Central New York.

It's The Cove at Sylvan Beach, a community of waterfront vacation rental cottages that come with the most amazing extra - your own pontoon boat for the length of your stay. Plus your own slip to park it. Cottages have full kitchens, your own BBQ grills and they are even pet friendly (see The Cove's website for details). There's also a resort pool reserved exclusively for guests.


Boating is only the beginning

Find your speed of water fun at Sylvan Beach Supply Co.

Sylvan Beach Supply Co., also new to Oneida Lake this year, is the place to rent all kinds of water sports fun. Love to boat but don't have your own - or do but don't want to bother hauling it? Boat rentals include ski boats, deck boats, fishing boats and pontoon boats. Even if you're new to boating, pontoon boats make it fun for everyone to get out on the lake, where summers are meant to be spent. 

The clear waters at Oneida Lake make it the perfect place to swim, fish or get in on water sports like kayaking, canoeing, wakeboarding, tubing and more. Here's another new thing to do: water bike. Part bicycle, part skis, they're not only great exercise but a fun new way to explore Oneida Lake shore to shore. You'll find all of these and more available to reserve online rent at this one-stop-shop.

Be sure to check out Sylvan Beach Supply Co.'s Lake Fun Packages for waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing and fishing, each with all the gear you need to get right to the fun.
