About the Adirondack Regions

The Adirondack Park is made up of seven distinct regions - each with their own striking landscape and unique visitor experience.

Spanning more than six million acres, the Adirondack Park is the largest park in the lower 48. Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of seven distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the Adirondack Lakes Region with more than 600 bodies of navigable water, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region - discover an area as diverse in geography as it is in activities and events. Bicycle between wineries on the Adirondack Coast, or dive to sunken shipwrecks in the Adirondack Seaway near the Canadian Border. You're invited to explore the Lake George Region's family-friendly attractions and discover the Adirondack Tug Hill Plateau's one-of-a-kind recreation opportunities.
