Elizabethtown, NY

By offering visitors a taste of Adirondacks traditional charm, tourism has long since supplanted lumber as the top industry in Elizabethtown NY. Located at the foot of Hurricane Mountain, with the Boquet River streaming through town, most visitors choose the Spring through Fall months to travel to Elizabethtown.


It is during this peak time that the river offers excellent conditions for those who want to venture out in a canoe or kayak. And due to it being stocked by county and state officials, the Boquet River gives fisherman a tremendous opportunity to catch rainbow, speckled, and brown trout. South of Elizabethtown is Split Rock Falls, an area of the Boquet River with a series of beautiful waterfalls and deep pools, which are naturally created due to significant drop-offs.

The outdoor recreation season doesn’t end when the first snow falls. With plenty of activities to please the entire family, including public skating, hunting, hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing, many visitors take the time to enjoy what Winter in Elizabethtown NY has to offer.

When choosing a place to stay there is no shortage of lodging options for those who prefer the authentic atmosphere of the old Adirondacks. And as with many accommodations in the Adirondacks, a fireplace frequently is the focal point for guests.

When out and about in Elizabethtown, take a walk down to the Adirondack History Center (open May – September), where you can learn what the early settlements of region were like. As you make your way there you will duck in and out of local gift shops, and be amazed by some of the stately homes that dot the streets.
