Make a splash this summer in the Schroon Lake region! Journey down the Hudson River—considered one of the best whitewater rafting trips in the United States. With 17 miles of class-III thrills and scenic views, it's a great adventure to take with friends and family. In the spring the water is usually raging and the trip is fast and exhilarating. We recommend choosing a summer trip if you have a youngster along for the ride; it's slower with a few great thrills, chances for swimming and floating, and even some rock jumping! In the fall, rafters enjoy fiery foliage as they paddle through the rapids.
After a day on the water, take the short drive back to your cozy Schroon Lake area accommodations, refuel at one of our dining options and relax as you watch the beautiful sunset over the lake and decide what else you'll explore here. For more information, contact our local guides below.
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.
