A TRUE ADK SUMMER
Saranac Lake is all about cool. With abundant lakes, rivers and streams you can fish, swim, paddle and boat your way around the region. Rent kayaks for a day (or half-day) paddle adventure through the locks in Saranac Lake, canoe to a remote island for a lunchtime picnic, and pull up your boat for some island camping. Don't forget your fishing rod, the Saranac Lake Region has water for every kind of angler. From salmon and trout to bass, pike and perch, you'll find many reasons to wet a line here!
