Hemlock Lake is one of two Finger Lakes that are maintained as water supplies for the city of Rochester. They are completely undeveloped and have restrictions placed on the size of powerboats that can operate on the lake. Swimming is prohibitted. The restrictions on this lake make the experience of being on the lake in a canoe or kayak more like being on a lake in the Adirondacks.

Public access to Hemlock Lake is provided in two locations with gravel ramps. Access is by permit only :

  • at the northeast corner of the lake, off Rix Road
  • at the southeast corner off Route 15A
