Upstate New York and Adirondack Park in particular are full of lakes. There are so many wonderful lakes in this part of the state and they all become playgrounds for boaters, water-skiers, jet-skiers, anglers, and swimmers during the summer months. Because these lakes are only warm enough for these types of recreational activities for a few months, the people who love them spend as much time in, on, near, and around them as possible during June, July, and August.

One lake at which this is especially evident is Great Sacandaga Lake. This lake is actually a reservoir created by damming the Sacandaga River. It’s 29.2 miles long and 5 miles wide and it has 66 miles of shoreline. It’s no wonder that so many people come to this body of water to live their lives to the fullest each summer.

Read on to learn more about why there’s nothing quite like a day at the lake when that lake is Great Sacandaga Lake. You’ll love it!


As you can see, this lake is a wonderful place to spend a summer day. You’ll meet lots of fun folks and new friends out on the water at Great Sacandaga Lake. You and your companions will love everything about this lake and there’s a good chance you will come back again year after year. Enjoy!
