clear seven-mile long lake where you can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing and water sports.  In addition to lounging on the sandy beach, the lake features a gradually sloping sandy bottom with a large shallow area, making it ideal for children and water enthusiasts of all ages.  There is a large lawn for all kinds of activities, and a secluded hammock area nestled among the pines for relaxation. A grill and picnic tables are available for outdoor dining.  There is also a firepit on the beach for evening gatherings.

We provide two canoes and two kayaks for your enjoyment.  If you wish to bring your own boat, there is a state-operated boat launch on the lake.

Fall brings a stunning show of color as the leaves turn.  This is the perfect time for hiking in the mountains or near the lakes.

In the winter the Adirondacks transform into a beautiful snow kingdom.  Snowmobiling is fabulous – you can access the large trail system from your doorstep to the lake.  Snowmobiles are available for rent from local shops or bring your own.  Downhill skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing are available 20 minutes away at Oak Mountain, and 45 minutes away at Gore Mountain.  You can also enjoy other winter activities in the region, including cross-country skiing, skating, and activities for children.

Speculator, within a 15 minute drive, offers great restaurants, a full-service grocery store, other shopping, tennis courts and playground.  The Lake Pleasant golf course, a 9-hole golf course overlooking lake views, is within a 15 minute drive  and is open to the public.
