Many Adirondack regions are well known for skiing or hiking, while others are revered for mountain biking or boating. The Adirondack Hub has it all. It’s a veritable buffet of Adirondack adventure. Watersports, winter sports, hunting and fishing, hiking and rock climbing, and, of course, inviting Adirondack towns that provide excellent amenities, comfortable lodging, and delicious dining. Whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, or with the whole family, find your Adirondack calling in the Adirondack Hub.

Boating and Paddling

Schroon Lake is picture-perfect for a day on the water. Surrounded by mountain views, the scenery is as stunning as the pristine water. Put your own boat in at the public launch or rent one from the local marina to spend a relaxing day soaking up the sun. Anchor the boat and go for a swim in the crystal clear waters, or kick it into high gear and enjoy waterskiing and tubing. While much of the waterfront is privately owned, a public beach offers an inviting stretch of sandy shoreline and a grassy picnic area. Though large, the lake is well shielded by surrounding hillsides, making for calm waters.

Paddlers of all kinds will enjoy exploring the lake, and shallow, sandy bays are excellent for beginner stand up paddle boarders. On a blue sky day in summer, when the trees are a vibrant green and the water a deep, refreshing blue, you might mistake Schroon Lake for a tropical paradise.

The Adirondack Hub is the ideal basecamp for any Adirondack adventure. Varied terrain makes almost every form of outdoor recreation possible, and there are countless hidden gems to discover! Nestled in the foothills of the High Peaks, visitors can explore mountains, lakes, wild forests, and more. Nearby Gore Mountain provides excellent skiing and snowboarding in the winter, and mountain biking in summer and fall. Vast trail networks accommodate snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. In the warm summer months, the Adirondack Hub is your headquarters for whitewater rafting down the Hudson River. Accessing the trails and peaks from the Southern access point is a great option to experience a quieter route. Looking for a unique outdoor family experience?
