Why The Largest Natural Lake In The Adirondacks Belongs On Your Bucket List

The local stores may be putting out school supplies and shoving fall-themed candles and decorations in our face, but that doesn’t mean we’re quite ready to let go over summer just yet. Especially between the months of June and September, you can find plenty of our residents hanging out by the water and enjoying New York’s scenery. With 3,000 lakes and ponds tucked inside the Adirondack Park, we all have our favorite body of water to visit in this region. But as a New Yorker, can you say that you know which one is actually the largest natural lake in the park?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
