Summer in the Adirondacks is perfect!
There, we said it. Hot days on the lake, followed by cool nights under a brilliant canopy of stars – it really doesn't get much better than that if you're into that sort of breathtaking natural beauty kind of thing. The Summer Solstice marks the high point for many Adirondack outdoor activities, including hiking, and with 2,000 miles of hiking and nature trails – you really can't take a wrong turn. Even if you do, you'll end up somewhere beautiful.
If warm breezes, the sound of waves lapping the shore, and dazzling celestial displays are your thing – think about pitching a tent at one of our Adirondack campgrounds. From rustic to downright luxurious campgrounds, the Adirondacks' camping inventory is as vast as the six million acre preserve.
Explore the Adirondacks' miles of rivers, lakes, and ponds from a unique vantage point and try stand-up paddleboarding. Rental shops are located across the region and usually within a few feet from a waterway. By the power of your own paddle, you'll glide across the water like the graceful creature you are!
