Want to get away from it all? Indian Lake fits the bill. Besides being in the heart of the 6 million acre Adirondack State Forest Preserve, we are located in Hamilton County – statistically the lowest population density in the U.S. east of the Mississippi. And although Hamilton is the third largest county in area in New York State, there is not one single traffic light in the whole place.
The vast majority of the lake and the surrounding territory are protected by the "Forever Wild" clause of the New York State Constitution. Guests have returned after years, and even decades, away and been amazed at how little changed the lake is. "It's just the way I remembered it", and "it's just like when I was a kid" are common reactions.
Yet there's plenty to do here. In addition to those things mentioned under each season, check out the following links:
