The Town

The Town of Long Lake includes the hamlets of Long Lake and Raquette Lake. The Lakes themselves are connected by Forked Lake and the Raquette River. Long Lake is formed by a widening of the Raquette River, which flows north as it empties into the St. Lawrence River. The divide between the Raquette River and the Hudson River is near Route 28N approximately 3 miles northeast of the Long Lake Town Hall between Long Lake and Newcomb. The geographic center of the Adirondack Park which consists of 3,500,000 acres of private land and 2,500,000 of state land is located at the north end of Long Lake. Covering an area 448 square miles, Long Lake is the second largest town in area in the state and is located on the northern end of Hamilton County, the third largest county in the state.

Raquette Lake with 99 miles of shoreline is one of the most deceiving lakes in the Adirondacks.Β  To the casual observer, the amount of lake visible from the road is no preparation to the fact that Raquette is the fourth largest of all Adirondack Lakes.Β  The local community offers lodging, restaurants, scenic boat tours, a cruise and dine boat and Great Camp Sagamore.

Beautiful morning to wake up in Long Lake, NY.
Spring is in the air. Long Lake Central School hosted a safety presentation led by Superintendent David Snide for students in grades 9-12. Joining forces were members of the Long Lake Fire Department, Long Lake Rescue Squad, and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department. These first responders were on-site to demonstrate rescue and recovery procedures at an accident scene. Don’t text and drive. β€’
