Private property, much of it dotted with boat docks, lines most of the 5 miles of shoreline around the lake. However there are areas on the western shore that one can fish from the bank. There are two primary locations for launching boats. The Echo Lake State Boat Launch is located in the southwest corner of the lake, and there is a boat launch ramp at Echo Lake Campground. There are special horse power limits for boats at certain times of the year. Check with Rhode Island DEM for details - 401 222-4700. Due to the boat motor restrictions, car-top boats, canoes, kayaks and electric powered boats can be ideal here.
