Location Details: At 17.5 miles long, Chautauqua Lake is western New York’s largest in-land lake. At 1308 feet above sea level it’s also one of the highest navigable bodies of water in North America. Long Point, which juts peninsula-like into Lake Chautauqua, is one of the moraines left long ago by a retreating glacier. The park and marina comprise a day-use area with thickly-wooded areas of beech, maple, spruce, poplar and oak. The park's boat launch is the most modern on Lake Chautauqua, which, at 1,308 feet above sea level, is one of the highest navigable bodies of water in North America. The lake has a plentiful supply of bass, perch, pike and other types of fish, but fishermen come to Chautauqua to fish for muskellunge. Muskellunge, or muskie, are native to the lake, noted for their size--often more than 30 inches long (in fact they must be at least 40" to keep) -- and their "fight." In winter, visitors can cross-country ski, snowmobile or fish. Chautauqua Lake Yacht Club is located on the southeastern end of Chautauqua Lake. Chautauqua Lake is located entirely within Chautauqua County, New York, USA. The lake is approximately 17 miles (28 km) long and 2 miles (3.2 km) wide at its greatest width.
