Otsego Lake

This nearly 2,000 acre lake features a fishing pier and is located at Otsego Lake State park. It is a floating pier that is installed in the spring and taken out in the fall. The best fishing is in the morning or evening as the lake is full of boats during the day. The pier is fully ADA accessible from the paved parking area all the way out onto the pier. If the fish aren't biting have a fun day at the beach!
