We hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend, as we experience glorious summer weather and fun on the water. The boat wash station is operating on Route 74 and the stewards are at the boat launches.
However, let us remember the reason for our holiday weekend, and give pause to honor every veteran who lost their life. Let u...
Now that we have finally seen the last of the snow showers here in Schroon (hopefully!), we continue to work hard to be ready for visitors to the lake.

The mapping process uses a Lowrance sonar plotter requiring a small boat and motor operating at < 5 mph with minimal wake. The plotter records a 30 ft wide path on a small d...
It has been said that “hindsight is 2020” and, as we look forward to the start of a new decade, I would encourage you to think back on the memories made on the lake we love. We all love the purity of our waters, the beauty of our mountains, beaches and streams, the sound of loons calling an...
