Long Lake

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, in Hamilton County

The scenic hamlet of Long Lake is located along the east shore of Long Lake near the center of the Adirondack Park.

Located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, on the 14 mile lake for which it's named, the hamlet of Long Lake is a traditional regional tourism center where you'll find diverse recreation adventures in every season. In spring, summer, and fall enjoy all types of boating, fishing, and hiking. Snowmobiling is popular in winter. Many visitors enjoy exploring the lake by floatplane or guided boat tours.

When you visit the the Long Lake area, you'll have interesting choices for places to dine and to stay, including historic Adirondack hotels, motels, modern housekeeping cottages, and rustic cabins.

If you like to camp, the public campground, Lake Eaton, offers secluded sites, boat rentals, and a paved path for biking and walking. Follow the interpretive nature trail that runs along the northern boundary of the campground to learn about special Adirondack flora, fauna, and birds.

At the annual Heart of the Park Antique Show and Fair, and the Heart of the Park Craft Fair you'll find all kinds of treasures with real Adirondack flavor, both historic and recently made.

Beginning in the north just a few miles below the Canadian border, down to the Mohawk River Valley in the middle of New York State, the 188-mile Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway gives travelers easy access to the scenic beauty of the Adirondack Mountains. Enjoy year-round recreational activities, countless opportunities to explore history, and the friendly people and relaxed pace of life in small communities along the byway.
