Largest nature preserve in the lower 48 states
Jul. 2020
At 6 millions acres, there is no larger park except Denali in Alaska; it just doesn't have the verticality (largest peak is only around 5,000 ft.). The vast expanse of lakes and trails is perfect to be enveloped in beauty. Definitely book early and avoid black fly season in early summer. From tents, to camper, to motel, to beautiful lodge, all options are on the table for you.

Beautiful "Forever Wild" Country
Aug. 2019 • Friends
The Adirondacks have gone to great lengths to keep a natural, quaint atmosphere everywhere you look. No strip malls or conglomerate hotels - just beautiful lakes, forests & rivers with raging rapids; lovely small towns, cottages & fishing/ hunting camps.

Make sure you include on your road trip
Jul. 2019
When planning our 3 week 2,500 mile roundtrip from Boston including Toronto and Quebec city, we chose to include the Adirondack Mountains on our route, we started in the south at Northville staying 2 nights in a wonderful bed & breakfast (Inn at the Bridge - see my other review), from here we visited the Adirondack Experience museum (See review) well worth a visit, we then headed north travelling alone scenic and often deserted roads with wonderful views of the Adirondack mountains ending up at the High Peaks hotel (Great accommodation - See my review) at mirror lake near lake Placid a place made popular through hosting the winter olympics, we stayed here for 2 nights before heading on a very long 6 hour drive to Toronto city. Mirror lake is lovely and peaceful as no motor boats are permitted.

Love the Adirondacks! Any season is a great time to come to upstate NY. Always something to do! Gorgeous scenery! Love the fall colors! Lake Placid lots of fun! Good for the whole family.

My all time favourite getting away from it all
Sep. 2018 • Solo
I have been coming here since I was a baby, and I brought my babies and they as adults have already decided to bring theirs. I cannot imagine a year without my spot on the lake.

Such a beautiful campground
Aug. 2018 • Couples
We just spent this last weekend at beautiful Meecham Lake. Hadn't been camping there in nearly 20 years. Such a nice campground, quiet for the most part. Wish parents would tell there children to use camping voices, but what can you do. Very clean bathrooms, pleasant staff, easy check in.Dry firewood. We camped on Site # 170, right on the water, big site, clean. There was a lot of traffic driving by as they have a boat launch at the end of the campground. The only negative thing I can say about the Campground is that , in my opinion, not allow generators. If you can't go camping for a weekend without water or electricity, well maybe you should camp else where. The whole point of going camping is to relax, sit back, enjoy the sounds of the loons, birds etc. Unfortunately come 9:00 am, all you here are dozens of generators coming on until 11:00, then it starts back up again at 4:00 for another 3 hours. Love this campground, will return for sure. Only wish they didn`t allow generators though :(

Adirondack Mountains rounded??
Oct. 2017 • Couples
I don;t know where the previous writer went but it sure wasn't the Adirondack. The mountains may not be 14rs but they are definitely beautiful.

Rounded, not pointy
Aug. 2017 • Couples
A drive in the mountains seemed like a good idea, after too long in the big city and asdmiring the bluffs along the Hudson River valley. My fault, I suppose. I was expecting pointy ones and these are the rolling kind of mountain.

Pleasant enough drive. Hills all around. The occasional viewpoint to stop at. Impressive enough if you are a little starved of nature, but no great shakes if you are used to the outdoors.

We skipped Mount Placid and piints north. Maybe they would have had more of a Wow factor.

Great experience
Oct. 2017 • Couples
Made the fall color drive. Missed the peak, but still enjoyed our visit. So many beautiful trails, lakes and peaks. My wife spent many weeks camping here as a kid. Brought back many good memories for her and we made many more new ones this trip. Just so much more left to see and do.

Chateaugay Lake-Upper Lake
Aug. 2017
The Chateaugay Lakes in the Northern Adirondacks are only about 30 miles from Canada, and are stunning in their beauty. The upper and lower lakes are connected by a narrows waterway, and flow into the Chateaugay River and eventually into the St. Lawrence River just below Montreal. I have been staying with family on their two side by side lakefront properties on the sunset side of the upper lake; which affords stunning views of small islands and the opposite shore. Fishing is great for bass. Sitting on the deck in the evenings and early mornings one can hear the beautiful calls of the loons. Several campsites particularly in the lower lake region. Close to Plattsburgh, Ellen's rug, Chateaugay, Burke, and Malone New York.
