Blue Mountain Lake

Blue Mountain Lake - Pure Adirondacks
This body of water is located in the rural hamlet of Blue Mountain Lake, NY. It's a great lake to paddle and has many islands you can stop at to picnic or camp where there are designated sites. It's also connected to Eagle Lake and Utowana Lake if you'd like to explore a bit more and go on a longer paddling trip. The Adirondack Museum is located just outside of town if you'd like to learn more about the history of the Adirondack Park.

Book Recommendation

Adirondack Paddling

65 Great Flatwater Adventures, 2nd edition, describes day trips that appeal to paddlers of all tastes and abilities, from parents with young children to hard-core wilderness junkies. The revised and expanded edition adds five new destinations, including Boreas Ponds and Essex Chain Lakes containing 150 color photos of waterways, wildflower, and birds.

Keep it PURE

Remember to Leave No Trace! Buy a physical map, read it, plan, and prepare. Think about the NYS Rangers and medical personnel that exhaust themselves for a rescue that could have been avoided. Pack out your trash. Use a bear canister when primitive camping and cook away from where you’re sleeping. Do the rock walk to help reduce the impact on fragile alpine vegetation. Camp at designated campsites and never camp on or near summits.
