Hi everyone,
I'd love to hear from any small boaters in the river towns - Hastings-on-Hudson up through Sleepy Hollow (we hope to be residents of one of these towns by summer) - as to where you go to boat. We've got kayaks, a canoe, and a 12' sailing dinghy.
- where can you launch with parking on the river?
- are there lakes where you can boat?

You might like to join this club. If for nothing else, pointers on how to navigate the Hudson. The Hudson is not some sleepy river. But it is strongly tidal, it's salt water all the way up to Newburgh and can be treacherous if you don't know what you're doing.

Sometimes it's safe, sometimes best not to be out there. But obviously lots of people enjoy water craft on it. These folks will know where best and where allowed to launch into the river.

My husband usually launches his kayak from Horan's Landing in Sleepy Hollow. Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown waterfront parks - Visit Sleepy Hollow I know you said only as far north as Sleepy Hollow but I also wanted to mention Croton. He's launched from the far south side of the Croton train station and really enjoyed that as well. Both have parking right next to the river.

The launch at Croton-Harmon station is great since you can access both the Hudson and the Croton River (which is a great kayak trip for learners and kids). The Croton is really lovely. In the spring through the fall one of the kayaking places has kayaks for rent at the launch on weekends.
