Forked Lake

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Long Lake in Hamilton County

Forked Lake offers miles of wonderful shoreline paddling and exploration.

Forked Lake is a 1,248-acre lake, seven miles southwest of the village of Long Lake. The lake is slender, and shaped like an inverted T. The easiest public access is reached via the DEC campgrounds, by leaving State Routes 28N and 30 at Deerland and driving southwest on County Roads 3 and 20, to the east shore of Forked Lake. There are campground trails near and along the shorelines north and west, as well as a picnic area near the lake’s dam. This resource is in Section 1 of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, a 740-mile water route extending from Old Forge in the Adirondack Park to Fort Kent, Maine.
