Your Adirondack Basecamp

Town Beach

The Adirondacks may be dotted by lakes and ponds, but the local town beach is the perfect location for your summertime outing - whether you're a local or here for a classic summer vacation. Located just a block from the center of town, Schroon Lake's sandy beach is surrounded by picturesque mountain vistas and is nestled at the base of gently rolling hills.

Perfect for swimmers of all ages and abilities, the roped-in swim quarters are monitored by lifeguards, and the deeper section has a floating dock to lounge on or swim off. Bring a picnic, or purchase your lunch at one of the quaint restaurants in town and enjoy it on the grassy knoll overlooking the beach. If your timing is right, you may even coordinate with the local Farmers’ Market for fresh and locally-grown yumminess. And it's so close to town that those in your party that enjoy shopping for local goods and artwork can take a quick stroll for souvenirs.

While the kids wait out their 20 minute post-lunch break, before the call of the gently lapping waves sucks them back in, they can enjoy the town park's playground equipment - which is so close that kids will probably go back and forth between the water and the playground. You can also relax on a park bench or in the shade of a tree if that's more your style.

There are also town beaches in the Adirondack Hub communities of Newcomb, Minerva, and North Hudson. All of the beaches offer the chance to cool off and relax in an authentic Adirondack lake - which is the perfect way to spend a day during your Adirondack vacation. So whether you come for a day or a week, the Adirondack Hub's local beaches will become the stuff of legends in your family memories.
