Conesus Lake is the westernmost of the 11 Finger Lakes. Often referred to as one of the "Little Fingers," it is located about 25 miles south of Rochester, New York. In 1924, the City of Rochester announced plans to use Conesus Lake to supplement the water supply for its residents. A year later, cottagers around the lake successfully banded together to protect Conesus's sparkling waters and preserve the area as a summer resort. Over time, the lake area has grown, and restaurants, taverns, campgrounds, and amusement parks have sprung up from the demand of the lake's many visitors. Today, four towns—Geneseo, Groveland, Conesus, and Livonia—border the approximate 18 miles of shoreline.
