Our businesses are famous for donating time, materials and helping co-sponsor events,  art installations, planting flowers, keeping our community beautiful and our businesses showcase our community pride and strong Adirondack spirit. There are ample opportunities to promote and support the variety of programs within our towns.  If you don’t know our businesses and volunteers, you should!

We thank our businesses for their support despite the hardships and obstacles so many faced.

Spring Flings and Ideas

It’s Spring in the Adirondacks. There are things to do in the Raquette Lake/Long Lake region even before it’s warm enough to swim.

The Adirondack Lean-To Challenge is New for 2016

The Adirondack Lean-To Challenge is New for 2016

The Adirondack Lean-To Challenge
New for 2016 is the Adirondack Lean-To Challenge This challenge was established to encourage people to get out into the wilderness and enjoy the Adirondacks for more than just a day hike. Through this challenge you will hopefully get a chance to experience it’s true wonders. Spending an evening in an Adirondack Lean-to can be an exhilarating and rewarding experience.This unique challenge requires the participants to try all recreation in the Adirondacks. You’ll hike, paddle and camp in order to complete the challenge. There are three levels of this challenge, but the Regular Challenge requires a total of camping out in 5 lean-tos, do three hikes, two paddles, five nights and five wilderness areas. Got it? Well not to worry, check out the website for details on this new and exciting Adirondack camping challenge.
Hike or Paddle into a lean-to in five of the wilderness or canoe areas and spend the night.

Hiking Just for Hiking Sakes
Not quite up for the committment that the Adirondack Lean-To Challenge beholds, that’s ok. Hikers of all levels can take advantage of some great spring vistas a short distance from Raquette Lake/Long Lake during our bugless, leafless season. Popular favorites (and there are many) inlude, Death Brook Falls, Coney Mountain, Castle Rock and Sargents Ponds. All family friendly hikes a short distance from Long Lake or Raquette Lake depending on your home base. For more info check out hiking descriptions, and gear list check out our hiking page. We also have a list of upcoming Summer hiking expeditions that Joan Collins and Spencer Morrissey will be leading in 2016.

Spring Rafting
Here’s a trick! Go rafting in the Spring when the water is high and the rapids are real. The rafting capital of the world launches from Indian Lake NY. There’s a variety of places to choose from. Make your reservation for your weekend and stay in Long Lake or Raquette Lake, both equidistant from the rafting launch. Check out Adirondac Rafting Adventure Sports Rafting Company

Paddling. Don’t forget your passport!
The ice is out and its an early season to start enjoying the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. The 740 mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) links the waterways of New York, Vermont, Québec, New Hampshire and Maine. Both Long Lake and Raquette Lake offer up kiosks to register and read up on legs of the trip. Long Lake/Raquette Lake is also along the 140 mile Raquette River Blueway Corridor, so checking out the northern portions of the Raquette including Colton all the way north to Potsdam is another way to approach the journey.

Winding Down after the Spring Recreation.

Ok, not everyone is suited for the scrappy lifestyle of the forest floor or a lean-to. And we know sometimes you just want to kick back with your friends after an outing and have a bite to eat, a beer and a soft place to rest your head.
