In and around Schroon Lake
The Schroon Lake Region of the Adirondacks is recognized for its scenic waterways, history and spectacular natural beauty. Spring and summer, the town transforms into a hiking, paddling, and boating paradise as well as an easy to access midpoint in the 6 Million Acre Adirondack Park. In the fall and winter, visitors enjoy the vibrant fall foliage and miles of trails perfect for hiking, skiing & snowmobiling. Enjoy a true vacation in Schroon Lake with your family and friends, in an ideal setting with awe-inspiring mountain views.
Schroon Lake is celebrated for its friendly people, active citizens and endless opportunity for outdoor adventure. The focal point of the town, and its namesake, is 9-mile long Schroon Lake. Creating a common point of interest, the lake unites the community and lends itself to the town and its people who are here to enjoy life on the lake. However, the region has more waterways than just Schroon Lake. Paradox Lake, Schroon River plus numerous ponds—all with crystal clear water— are big draws for the area. Whether you want to swim, paddle, canoe, fish, boat, tube or water-ski, the region provides all the aquatic adventures you can handle.
For those who prefer to stay on dry land, there is no shortage of activities in Schroon Lake. Throughout the seasons, the region offers unique shopping and dining experiences as well as a wealth of outdoor activities from biking and hiking on the Adirondacks' thousands of miles of designated trails, to backpacking and camping under the stars.
For a walk on flatter terrain, we recommend playing a round of golf on the scenic 9-hole municipal course or bring a racket and play tennis on one of eight public courts. Or plan a day visiting attractions including the Wild Center, the Adirondack Experience, Fort Ticonderoga or a visit to a local ranch or museum. And don't miss the oldest rock in North America and the largest marble cave entrance in the East at Schroon Lake's natural underground caves.
For fun in the sun, spend a day on one of the region's sandy beaches, check out a farmers' market, or visit one of the area's noted historic sites. Events abound: for arts and entertainment, catch a show at the old-fashioned movie theater or attend one of the many musical events and theatrical performances offered by the Schroon Lake Arts Council and the renowned Seagle Music Colony.
