Now is the time to take an up close look at Oneida Lake real estate. An easy commute to and from Syracuse, Oneida Lake offers a wide variety of affordable homes, starting in the mid $100s. With 55 miles of shoreline, there are plenty of waterfront properties ranging from small cottages to large estates with private docks.
The lake is relatively shallow, allowing residents to enjoy warm weather swimming as well as boating and fantastic fishing for walleyes, northern pike, perch, bullhead and sturgeon—the latter being catch and release only. Oneida Lake has many marinas that offer services that range from boat slips to gas, bait, boating supplies and groceries. In the winter the lake freezes over and is a great spot for ice fishing and snowmobiling.
The Oneida Lake shoreline is home to some of the finest restaurants in central New York – many with fantastic views of the lake. There are also a great number of casual eateries, shops and offices as well as attractions including the Sylvan Beach Amusement Park and near-by Turning Stone Casino, Vernon Downs race course and casino, the Fort Rickey Discovery Zoo and the Boxing Hall of Fame. A year-round calendar of events includes art festivals, boat parades and shows and holiday celebrations.
Sixty-nine communities surround Oneida Lake; the ones closest to Syracuse being Sullivan, Cicero, Vienna, Constantia, Lenox, West Monroe, Hastings and Verona. Please contact us if you’d like to know which community best meets your real estate needs.
