Forked Lake launch access

Does anyone know or has anyone launched from either the main eastern launch at Forked Lake or the Raquette-Forked western launch recently (past week or so). Is there car access and does it seem like parking for the day is allowed? No answer at the campground which says they are closed to camping and day-use. And waiting for a call back from the Regional Indian Lake DEC office. Thanks for any insights.

I have been there via the Raquette carry many times, but not yet this year. There is a utility barn there with a no parking sign on the door, but I see no reason why you could not park nearby to the launch site and dock for a day, though it is remote and you take your chances, like any other such place. I may be through there soon, in a week or two, paddling the Cannonball-90.

Thanks. According to the Indian Lake Regional DEC this morning, vehicle access is open and you can launch and park in the lot. Supposed to be nice weather!

Good luck in the Cannonball-90!
