Blue Mountain Lake, NY

Blue Mountain Lake, whose sheer beauty is overwhelming, is one of the crown jewels of the Adirondacks. The scenery that you pass while driving there is spectacular.

Its world-famous Adirondack Experience museum (called "the best of its kind in the world" by the New York Times) takes you back in time with dramatic exhibits that feature every aspect of Adirondack life, from mining and logging to railroads and recreation.

Enjoy the classic, rustic ambience while staying at a Blue Mountain hotel or lodge. Explore the arts, shops, and restaurants that surround the area, or relax on a guided boat tour of the lake.

Blue Mountain Lake is also a magnet for outdoor adventurers. The lake is a paddler's and fisherman's paradise, as are other nearby lakes and ponds. Whitewater enthusiasts will find some of the world's finest Class III and IV rapids on the famous Hudson River Gorge, just a few minutes away.

The area is loaded with easy-access hiking trails with spectacular views, ranging in difficulty from the demanding Blue Mountain to the relatively easy, but spectacular, Castle Rock. For camping, the Blue Mountain Wild Forest features two lean-tos.
