DEC Completes Jamestown Falls Redevlopment

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced the completion of improvements at the Jamestown Falls river access site, located off State Route 56, north of Sevey Corners in the town of Colton, St. Lawrence County.

Located within the Raquette River Wild Forest, the completed project includes an accessible parking space and a hand-carry/car-top launch at the Raquette River.

The Jamestown Falls river access site also features a newly rehabilitated access road (to reduce erosion); an accessible primitive campsite; privy; fire ring; picnic table, tent pad and an informational kiosk. The total cost for improvements at this site were approximately $35,000 and were paid for by New York Works funding.

DEC manages 4.6 million acres of public lands, including three million acres in the Adirondack and Catskill Forest Preserve, 52 campgrounds, 5 day-use areas, more than 5,000 miles of formal trails, and hundreds of trailheads, boat launches, and fishing piers.
