Town of Indian Lake

Central Adirondack Trail and Adirondack Trail, in Hamilton County

The hamlets of Blue Mountain Lake and Indian Lake are in the Town of Indian Lake, near the Hudson River.

Indian Lake is considered the Whitewater Rafting Capital of New York State. The Hudson River Gorge is 17 miles of white water through beautiful Adirondack scenery. During the spring runoff the melting of winter snows provide the rafters with wild Class III, IV and V rapids. The Hudson is well known for its unusually long continuous white water sections with famous rapids such Blue Ledges, Mile Long and Big Nasty. Controlled dam released water enables rafting throughout the warm months with the added provision of time to enjoy a swim and a riverside lunch in between rapids. Then the time comes for the rich green of summer to explode into the red, orange and gold of autumn. And last but not least, Indian Lake is winter playground for skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Town of Indian Lake also is home to the Adirondack Museum
