Petrie Road
Inlet, NY 13360

This large picnic area is on the shore of Fourth Lake.

Getting there

Location: Drive 7.3 miles from downtown Inlet on South Shore Road and turn onto Petrie Road. Follow that for 0.3 mile to the state DEC cartop boat access and picnic area.


There are some feed weed beds for fishing northern pike, perch, and sunfish. There is a cartop only boat launch at this location.


It takes less than 30 minutes to paddle to Alger Island.

Ice Fishing

Always check ice thickness before walking on local lakes. Fourth Lake sees a large amount of snowmobile traffic during the winter. Ice fishermen enjoy good action with perch and lake trout. Plowing at the access is limited.


There are restrooms, water, and parking for 28 cars with trailers.


This DEC boat launch is handicap accessible.

**Please note, beginning September 7th, 2022 the Fourth Lake Boat Launch will be closing for site rehabilitation. It is expected to reopen May 2023**
