Celebrate Paddling ADK

When a town has ‘lake’ in it’s name, it better give off a solid water vibe. Saranac Lake doesn’t disappoint. It is smack dab in the center of the Adirondack Park’s 30,000 miles of paddling routes. Surround by the Saranac Lake chain, tons of smaller bodies of water, and nearby St Regis canoe area.

Saranac Lake has ‘right out your backdoor’ paddling abundance. You can begin and end your day on the water right from downtown. Lake Flower is the show piece in the middle of town. A result of damming the Saranac River that runs through town and connects to the Saranac chain. It is a daily reminder how connected you are to the water, if you listen closely you can hear it calling you.

To help you get on the water, several outfitters and organizations in the Saranac Lake region have teamed up to offer a variety of paddling-related activities and events. Dubbed Celebrate Paddling ADK, this series offers everything from Armchair Adventures on select weeknights, to on-the-water events such as the Adirondack SUP Festival. Celebrate Paddling is a joint effort of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, Adirondack Lakes and Trails Outfitters, St. Regis Canoe Outfitters, and MAC's Canoe Livery.
