South Inlet

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near Raquette Lake in Hamilton County

The South Inlet of Raquette Lake is one of the most beautiful and tranquil stretches of flatwater in the Adirondack Park.

Forming a boundary between the Blue Ridge Wilderness and the Moose River Plains Wild Forest, it flows for two sinuous miles into the south end of Raquette Lake. Nearby is a 3-mile round trip hike from the outlet of Sagamore Lake, the site of one of the historic Great Camps in the region, and follows through primeval Adirondack forest along the stream until reaching the gentle cascades where it empties into South Inlet on Raquette Lake.

To access Great Camp Sagamore, the Vanderbilts arrived by rail, then boarded a launch to travel by water instead of road,to their home camp on Sagamore Lake.
