Lock 20 State Campsite in Oriskany

Stayed at Lock 20 8/21/21 doing a bike touring trip with our Scout Troop. We were told while planning this trip that water would be available at this location. This website also lists water as available. There is no potable water here. There is a faucet on the side of the lock house with a sign that says non-potable water, so plan ahead if you are going to stop here. We did find a convenience store around the corner that let us fill up our bottles. Mosquitoes were horrendous, thousands of them biting through even Deep Woods Off. The only protection was to be covered from head to toe, even then they were biting through clothing. Portable toilets were on the opposite side of the canal. You can cross the lower lock gate to get there.

John sorry to hear that your night at Lock 20 did not go so well, and sorry that we had the wrong info here about water availability. I have updated the listing to reflect lack of water at Lock 20. Hope the rest of your trip went better!
