From commissioning until February 1920, Mahopac operated in the 12th Naval District. She was then transferred to the 13th Naval District. There, for more than two decades, she rendered valuable service to the ships of the Pacific Fleet in successfully performing tug and towing assignments in the intricate channels of the Pacific Northwest.

Reclassifled ATO-29 on 15 May 1944, she continued to operate out of Bremerton, Wash., until decommissioning 12 September 1946. The following month she was struck from the Navy Register and on 28 April 1947 she was accepted by the Maritime Commission and delivered to the Puget Sound Tug & Barge Co. at Port of Nordland, Wash.
