Sacandaga Lake continues to be impacted by this month’s heavy rain. The DEC has decided to close Northampton Beach this weekend.
The day use area is currently still available for picnicking.
Last weekend, the Fulton County Sheriff's Office warned about debris floating in the lake due to the heavy rain.
“If you go out on the Great Sacandaga, please be alert and aware of floating debris,” the sheriff’s office said. “The water is so high from the rain we have had reports of docks, catwalks, boats, trees and many other assorted items floating. Considering getting off the lake by dusk.”
