20 Reasons to come up to Long Lake & Raquette Lake in the Winter

Don’t let the weather fool you into thinking that we don’t have lots of activities happening in and around our area. Winter recreation has baffled many of us this season, but there are still tons of activities to do to get you out of your cabin fever funk and trying new things that you’ve never experienced before.

Check out this list of activities happening in our area kicking off this weekend Feb 27th – March 5th. There is definitely something for everyone. Look on the bright-side, the roads have been pretty clear all winter so the driving is a breeze!

20 Reasons to come up to Long Lake & Raquette Lake in the Winter
1. It looks different than it does in the summer.
2. People wearing hats are just funnier.
3. People not wearing hats when it’s cold outside look funny too.
4. People aren’t as busy in the winter, so they have more time to get to know you.
5. Lines are shorter at The Wild Center
6. You can spend more time hugging the bear at the Adirondack Hotel
7. Hoss’s and the ADK Trading Post sometimes double as aquariums (ask)
8. The seaplanes don’t get in the way of the view
9. The Winter Boat is actually the same as the Durant
10. Hot dogs and hot chocolate taste way better in February
11. The towns don’t really have a gate that locks up after Labor Day
12. We have electricity year round
13. Not everyone has chains on their tires
14. Cold air is rejuvinating
15. Plenty of dining options
16. Drinking craft beer in the winter is enriching
17. The quietness of the lakes is peaceful
18. You can visit with Bobby up at the ice skating rink and hear about his adventures in Alaska
19. You can see buckets attached to trees gearing up for early Maple Season
20. Hey Jude the Tribute plays a live Beatles Concert and that unto itself is super fabulous.

Winter Update on Long and Raquette Lake

On Tuesday Feb 9, 2016, the New York Times published an article titled “In Unfrozen Northern New York, Winter Isn’t the Same” . This winter season has brought forth a variety of fluctuating conditions to the Adirondacks resulting in inconsistent ice conditions and challenges for winter recreation.

Long Lake as seen on Monday, Feb 8th with a light coating of snow.

Long Lake as seen on Monday, Feb 8th with a light coating of snow.


Skating on the lake is not recommended which is why the Town of Long Lake boasts the Geiger Arena Rink located off Deerland Road at 6 Pavilion Way (across the street from the Post Office) The Geiger Rink is manned by fan favorite Bobby Helms, an avid ice fisherman and hockey player. He’s built the ice surface two or three times this winter and he anticiaptes old-man winter is finally here for good. Look for Adult Ice Hockey coming up on Thursdays. Call for conditions and hours 518.624-3031. Bobby will be open daily during President’s Week.

If you are seeking ice skating fun in Raquette Lake, look no further. Michael Bartow will be teaching ice skating at the Raquette Lake Winter Carnival starting at noon on February 13th near the site of the Raquette Lake Winter Carnival. Bring your own skates!

Long Lake is a widening in the Raquette River and there is strong current in and around inlets/outlets, brooks and under the bridge near the Long Lake beach. Stay away from brooks, streams, inlets/outlets, shorelines and dock bubblers.

Outlook for weekend looks cold.

Lake Eaton Ice Fishing Derby

Hamilton County is under a wind chill warning. A wind chill warning means the combo of cold air and winds will create dangerously low wind chill values. This could result in frost bite, hypothermia if precautions not taken. Bundle up, layer and be prepared. The Long Lake Warming Hut/Weigh in station will be available for contestants to warm up. 4-wheelers and snowmobiles will be allowed on lake, but no trucks.

The Long Lake Fish and Game Club will be sponsoring an Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Eaton on Saturday, February 13th, 2016 from 7am until 3pm. Registration will open at 6am to 7am at the Mt.

Bring Your Own Chainsaw to Raquette!

Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow at Gobbler’s Knob today, Feb. 2, 2016, Groundhog Day, and so Spring is just around the corner, but in Long Lake and Raquette Lake, we like to disagree.

While Mother Nature has been sparing with her precipitation this year, we make sure to plan plenty of activities to help pass the time of the long winter months.

Things to do in February, fan favorites are the Raquette Lake Winter Carnival, recently featured by I Love NY’s Twitter Feed!

I Love NY just featured Raquette Lake Winter Carnival in their Twitter Feed.

It’s an old fashioned small town tradition. Events range from Spaghetti Dinner on Friday, followed up by fun family activities on Saturday from sledding, skating, golf, frying pan toss, kids events, fireworks on Saturday Night. Sunday doesn’t disappoint with it’s pancake breakfast, and the infamous cross-cut and chainsaw competition. These events can happen no matter mother nature’s mood!

Friday Feb 12th
Spaghetti dinner 5pm till gone $10 to benefit the Raquette Lake Ladies Aux all you can eat, Fire Hall
Saturday Feb 13
11am Kid’s activities
12pm Ladies Frying pan toss $$$ prizes
12-2 Kids ice skating with instructor Michael Bartow
2 pm Magician in the Library – To be Confirmed! Check back!

Sunday Feb 14th – Take your Valentine to Breakfast!
9am-noon Pancake breakfast the Fire Hall to benefit the Raquette Lake Ladies Aux $10 all you can eat
Noon- Cross cut and Chain saw competition $$$prizes (bring your own chainsaw)

(Personally I love when event copy reads “bring your own chainsaw” – just one more reason I love the ADK)

Now everyone always asks when the Ice Harvest in Raquette Lake is. Well, it’s again up to mother nature. We are going to be watching the temps and keeping an eye out, but the decision always rests with Raquette Lake Supply. They make the call and sometimes it’s a call that happens at the last minute. We promise to post the information when we get it. Keep an eye on the Facebook fan page for Raquette Lake for updates.

Long Lake kicks off President’s Week with an Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Eaton, a Basket Class and a week of fun-filled kids activities. For more details click on the calendar link, print it out and put on the fridge so you know what is coming up. We may be small, but we stay busy and everyone is invited to come play with us!

February Calendar of Events

Don’t forget to save the date, Hey Jude, a Beatles Tribute Band, returns to Long Lake on Saturday, March 5th at 7:30pm. Tickets available now $12 advance/ $15 at door. This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrnt program of the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.

New Years Eve Planning Tools Long Lake Style in the ADK

2016NYE poster

Long Lake has it going on for New Years. Dining options galore with high end choices. It will be a fantas-smic-gourmet experience. (yah, our skilled office staff invented that word.. well we think we did.. ok it was me and Bobby)

With a variety of choices from filet mignon, lobster tails, scallops, vegetarian options, desserts, speciality drinks. It would be cool if you snapped a photo and posted it instagram, #mylonglake would be great! Thanks in advance! Make your choice and reserve today. Look for The Cellar Restaurant and Pub, The Adirondack Hotel and the Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub.

Here are some highlighted reviews of our local places.

The Cellar Restaurant and Pub: Every time we eat at The Cellar it just keeps getting better! We came here twice during our recent stay at Long Lake. We are so happy we found this place. Our children loved it. Service was excellent and the food is very good.

The Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub: Great place for good food. Locally owned and operated restaurant and you won’t be disappointed. View is great too! Great food with generous portions. Service was excellent. Owners, Jim and Paula, know how to put on a great spread!

Adirondack Hotel: Felt welcome among the regulars. We enjoyed the food and excellent service. The menu options are always interesting. The dinner is always outstanding along with tasty and unusual appetizers. Don’t miss the gift shop.

Did someone say free bikey taxi? No, we don’t have those, but we do have the Little Bus. Visitors, and residents have rated their Little Bus experience 5-stars! My most recent, favorite Little Bus memory was meeting a group of Canadian travelers, spending the holiday in Long Lake. They were adventurous and pulled over on their travels throughout the area and decided to make it their New Years Eve destination, not knowing one thing about our community. The group of them, including children were keeping their eye on the bus. Folks were coming and going in large groups, and pairs. The bus would leave and return a few minutes later with new guests and sometimes some of the same people that just left.

Long Lake Little Bus provides free transportation on New Years Eve. 518.323.5001  This will be this new busses 1st time out on New Years Eve.  Let's give it a warm welcome.

Long Lake Little Bus provides free transportation on New Years Eve. 518.323.5001 This will be this new busses 1st time out on New Years Eve. Let’s give it a warm welcome.

Finally the guests asked a local on the porch, “What is with this traveling, little bus? Where does it go?” Clay, a local Long Laker, was exiting to catch the bus himself. He took a moment to clue the visitors in on the secret and he’s over the moon to introduce new people to the Little Bus. He insists they get on the bus and he’ll take them up the street to they can check out the appetizers. The family was appreciative of the hospitality, they raved, “This is the friendliest town we’ve ever been in. You are the nicest people.”

The options for the little bus are easy. Call the number, make sure you know where you are and you’ll be picked up. Riders can take it anywhere within town limits. It can hop from the skating rink, to the town beach to all the businesses in between and even your grandparents house on Kickerville Lane.

Ride the Little Bus and enjoy all the options without the burden of driving. Yes, its free and yes you can call it and the driver will pick you up at your home or lodging. New number for 2016 is 518-323-5001 Bring the whole family, invite friends, have a Long Lake Family reunion for New Years Eve. We promise, it will be an evening you’ll never soon forget.

If you need a place for the kids, look no further than the Geiger Arena. Movies, Wii Games, wifi and skating and sledding until 10pm. The kids can go by the Little Bus and they’ll get to their destination safely. Bobby will be serving up pizza, drinks, hot chocolate and pizza.

Polar Plunge is a tricked out time to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Polar Plunge is a tricked out time to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Stay for a few nights and round out the stay with the Polar Bear Plunge on January 2nd, 2016. It’s an experience unto itself. Singles and Teams dress up in fun costumes and leap into the frosty waters of Long Lake on their mission to support The Wounded Warrior project. The banter from MC Peter Michael Marino will have you on the floor (or the sand and / or snow – because we’re on a beach) This is the 4th year for the Long Lake event and the goal is to raise $4000 to make Long Lake’s Donation total over the last four years exceed $20,000.

We hope you consider making Long Lake your destination for New Years Eve and stay a little longer after that!

For other activities look no further than a stop at iconic Adirondack landmark, Hoss’s Country Corner. Check out newly opened Adk Growl and Grub (located behind Hoss’s), grab a panini at the ADK Trading Post, a Reiki Session with Dina Kennedy and a nice bottle of speciality wine from Ali Babas Liquors. And then there’s plenty to do, drive around and explore our region, you’ll never know what you find around the corner.
