Did you catch the Raquette River Winter Experience on WPBS? We want to welcome you to the Town of Long Lake’s website. This past weekend was the Long Lake Winter Carnival as featured on the program, we had terrific winter events including broomball, Ladies Frying Pan Toss, and the first leg of the Adirondack Cardboard Box Racing Circuit.
If you are looking for a fun-filled weekend excursion to Long Lake we recommend the weekend of February 7th and 8th, 2014. Plenty of time to plan and get organized and make a winter weekend out of it. It is a Winter Fest Weekend featuring a Poker Run, a game played by car or snowmobile, Ice Fest and the Lake Eaton Ice Fishing Derby. Three events in one-weekend!
For the Poker Run players start off in cars or by snowmobile in Raquette Lake or Newcomb utilizing a network of community connector trails.

Winter approaches and the locals gear up for a busy season. Snowmobile Trails get prepped, bridges get re-decked, brush gets cut back, TRP’s are filed with the NYS DEC so Ice Fishing Derbies can be launched. Plans are hatched all over town to keep the weather snow machine maxed out to capacity.
Coming up at the end of December is the Feelin’ Long Lakey Wounded Warrior Polar Bear Plunge. Last year over 50 tough hearted souls braved the fierce bone-chilling cold to take the plunge. Teams raised over $7000 for the Wounded Warriors. If you are interested in signing up or pledging, please fill out the registration form and start collecting for our Wounded Warriors.
For Wounded Warriors returning from active duty around the world, the most difficult part of homecoming is adapting to the daily challenges of everyday life. The Wounded Warrior Project was established to provide tangible, practical support for the wounded, helping them to heal both physically and mentally.
Prizes will be awarded for Most Creative Costumes, Biggest Fundraisers, Best Team Theme and more to be announced.

The voters decide on Tuesday, November 5th.
A View from Raquette Lake in Township 40
Vote Yes on Prop 4.
Since the 1800’s, Adirondack land titles in “Township 40” in Hamilton County’s Town of Long Lake and Raquette Lake have been confused by conflicting claims amongst the State and both public and private owners including the school, firehouse, waste transfer station, utility station, marina, businesses and homes – 216 parcels in all.
Please join us in completing 10 years of work by our State legislators, Hamilton County legislators and officials, DEC, the Attorney General’s Office, Town of Long Lake officials, Adirondack environmental groups and private citizens in this effort to clear this legal tangle and add to the Forest Preserve at no cost to the taxpayer.
