Exploring a Chain of Lakes in the Adirondacks

Upper Saranac Lake is part of a chain of lakes, which includes Lower Saranac Lake and Middle Saranac Lake. One of the most captivating aspects of the Saranac Lake chain is the ease with which one can navigate the interconnected waters by boat. Whether you choose to bring your own vessel or rent one locally, a boat provides a gateway to experiencing the full beauty and tranquility of the Adirondacks.

Differences in Lower / Middle / Upper Saranac Lake

Starting from Lower Saranac Lake, boaters can embark on a scenic journey through islands, many of which have prime day use and camping sites. Loons are a common site on these waters.

Middle Saranac Lake offers a unique blend of secluded coves, sandy beaches, and rocky shores, inviting visitors to take a moment to bask in the serenity of their surroundings.

Upper Saranac Lake is a grand finale that leaves visitors in awe. Its expansive waters, framed by rolling hills and towering peaks, create an idyllic backdrop. Many historic private homes line this lake, including the famed Rockefeller escape turned luxury hotel.
