Lamoka Lake (previously known as "Mud Lake") is a small crescent-shaped lake in the western part of New York. The lake is located at the border of Schuyler County and Steuben County. Most of the lake is in Schuyler County with only a small part, called "Mill Pond," at the southwest corner in Steuben County.
North of Lamoka Lake is another lake called Waneta Lake (previously known as "Little Lake" ) which is linked to Lamoka Lake by a short channel. Both Lamoka Lake and Waneta Lake are east of Keuka Lake, one of the Finger Lakes. However, they are not part of the Finger Lakes drainage system. While the Finger Lakes drain north into the St. Lawrence River system, Lamoka and Waneta Lakes drain south into the Cohocton River in the Susquehanna River system.
The lake is well-stocked with a variety of fish, including several species of panfish. Boat launching ramps are available for each lake.

Communities of Lamoka Lake
The Lamoka Culture was a late Archaic native culture that subsisted mainly by hunting and gathering. Archaeological excavations around Lamoka Lake revealed that they lived part of the year in small houses. Tool survival indicated that hunting and fishing were important activities. The Lamoka People lived in central New York and northern Pennsylvania from about 3500 to 1300 BCE.
