History of Lamoka Lake


North of Lamoka Lake is another lake called Waneta Lake (previously known as “Little Lake” or “Green Lake”) which is linked to Lamoka Lake by a short channel. Waneta is supposedly a native term for “Green Lake.” Both Lamoka Lake and Waneta Lake are east of Keuka Lake, one of the Finger Lakes. However, they are not part of the Finger Lakes drainage system. While the Finger Lakes drain north into the St. Lawrence River system, Lamoka and Waneta Lakes drain south into the Cohocton River in the Susquehanna River system.

The lake is well-stocked with a variety of fish, including several species of panfish. Boat launching ramps are available for each lake.
