Floodwood Pond Boat Access

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

A Floodwood trip goes through some of the most beautiful waters in the Adirondacks, through ponds and rivers filled with wildlife and scenic vistas.

Drive to the put-in along the Floodwood Road from Saranac Inn off Route 30. Park up by the railroad tracks, and carry boats down to the pond, a short carry of about 75 yards from the parking area. At the take-out point, you can back your vehicle into the water. Paddling is essentially flatwater, with gentle river currents in the river stretches. This is an easy paddle-trip of about five miles or 3 hours, suitable for paddlers of all ages and abilities. Trip can be extended into multiday, looping trips quite easily, as the area is almost as much water as land.
