Your Adirondack Basecamp

Fun for the entire family

Families, friends, and fishermen alike find Schroon Lake's natural spring water the perfect launching point for a memorable day. Lake Harris in Newcomb, Paradox Lake in Schroon, and Putnam Pond are also great places to launch and explore.

Need a break? Take a dip at the Town Beach in Schroon Lake. Or find a remote corner of a lake to drop an anchor and soak up some sun.

Leave No Trace

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
