Dexter Marsh NYSDEC Boat Launch

Olympic Byway, County Rt. 3, near Sackets Harbor in Jefferson County

Seven miles west of Watertown, off Route 180, at the head of the Black River Bay, Dexter Marsh is productive wetland area.

Dexter Marsh is open to the public year round. Easily accessible from three state boat launching facilities: Perch River off County Route 59, Muskellunge Creek on State Route 180, and Lloyds Landing off Old Military Road. This 1,350 acre marsh is a popular fish and waterfowl area. Northern pike, bass and panfish are found in the shallow to deep water, and a variety of ducks utilize the sparse cattail marsh which characterizes this Lake Ontario bay. Canada geese are often seen during their migration. Bald eagles are occasionally seen over the marsh.
