Visit The Crossroads Of The Adirondacks: Tupper Lake, NY
Tupper Lake's nickname stems from its central location in the Adirondack Park. It is home to the popular Wild Center, a nationally recognized natural history ecocenter that brings the Adirondack wilderness up close and personal. Tupper Lake also offers miles of secluded snowmobile trails dotted with outstanding accommodations, plus pristine waters, and a neverending list of outdoor adventures.

Tupper Lake has a rich French Canadian influence dating back to the early logging days that continues to lend a distinct flavor to the community today. Annual Woodsman's Days feature axe throwing, logrolling and chainsaw carving competitions. Artisanal fairs and antique shows also draw visitors every year, and there is even an old-fashioned movie theater nestled in the heart of the village.
You can enjoy a championship golf course, paddle a canoe down the Raquette River, or access Tupper Lake via the public boat launch. If you prefer, take it slow and just enjoy the natural beauty of the lakes, rivers, and a spectacular evergreen landscape surrounding you in this quaint Adirondack town.
