RCPA Call to Action

Canoe-in for Wilderness on August 15th Keep Little Tupper Lake Motorless

July 1998

For more information:

Peter Bauer 95180 251-4257



Little Tupper Lake is open to the public. For the next year, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will manage Little Tupper Lake as a wilderness area no motorized water craft will be allowed. We are eager to see that Little Tupper Lake, and other Adirondack lakes that are motorless, stay that way.

On Saturday, August 15th you are invited to attend a conoe-in to demonstrate our belief that thousands of canoeists and people across New York want and expect these motorless waterways to remain quiet and clean forever.

Put a paddle in the water to keep Little Tupper Lake motorless! We need to show policymakers and state officials in Albany that many people support keeping Little Tupper Lake open to all types of motorless craft. The stakes are high and the time is now.

Join the effort and paddle on Little Tupper Lake Saturday, August 15th. Show that there is a strong constituency for motorless waterways.

We need to hear from you! Call the Residents' Committee to Protect the Adirondacks and let us know how many in your party plan to attend. Residents' Committee to Protect the Adironacks, (518) 215-4257.


Parking at the Little Tupper Lake parking lot is limited to just 40 cars. So it's important to call ahead so we can arrange for you to drop off your canoe and then park your car on NYS Route 30 and be shuttled back to Little Tupper Lake. We will be shuttling in people starting at 10:00 a.m. and we hope to get everyone in the water by noon.

New Coalition Forms

A coalition between the RCPA and local outfitters and guides has formed to join forces to keep Little Tupper Lake motorless.
