Utica & Union Reservoirs

Utica & Union Reservoirs


Utice Reservoir

These scenic small, twin reservoirs are located off the Spicer Reservoir Road. The setting is more rustic than Spicer Reservoir or Lake Alpine. No developed recreation facilities exist at either lake; however, the area is popular for day use, dispersed camping and paddle sports such as canoeing and “sea” kayaking. A primitive boat launch is available at Union Reservoir, where the maximum boat speed is 5 mph. Utica Reservoir is managed for non-motorized boating.
