Boating in the Adirondacks

Saranac Lake invites you to enjoy our waters by boat! Begin by checking out Lake Flower, the center of downtown Saranac Lake, where you can access over 24 miles of navigable Adirondack lakes and waterways. Find your own private corner of a lake or spot to anchor down and make the most of your day on the water. As you coast along you will see islands to hop and rope swings for thrills and excitement. 

The best place to start your motorboat adventure is on the Adirondack lakes of the Saranac Lake Region, and the best time is now!

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK Pledge

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
