About sixteeen miles S. W. of Oswego is Little Sodus, an inlet or bay of considerable extent, and with depth of water sufficient for the largest class vessels that sail on the Lakes. Unfortunately, however, the water in the channel does not exceed an average of six feet, so that this otherwise secure basin is almost useless.

The entrance is between piers 250 feet apart, run out 1300 feet in the Lake, into fourteen feet water. The depth of water inside the bay ranges from twenty-five feet to forty feet. There is no lighthouse.
