The boat launch site by the motel is locked and closed to the public. The only boaters allowed to use this launch are lake property owners that belong to the Goodyear Lake Association. This will make the lake safer and cleaner for GLA members to enjoy.
The Otsego county sheriffs boat does not patrol north of the Portlandville bridge anymore.The sheriff put a mast on the boat that makes it too big to get under te bridge. Instead of taking the mast down the sheriff just gave up on patroling half the water ways in the town of Milford. NYS boating law violators in this area don't care about you, your boat or your property and the sheriff doesn't care eather.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
