Old Forge is an Adirondack paradise, surrounded on all sides by crystal-clear lakes. Thrill seekers will find plenty of water filled adventures at Enchanted Forest Water Safari and the Moose River's world-famous Class V rapids. Competitive paddlers will love the annual ninety-mile Classic Canoe Race, and cyclists will enjoy the abundance of trails.

When winter arrives, Old Forge is a snowmobiler's heaven, with hundreds of miles of groomed trails winding throughout the region. Skiers and snowboarders will find McCauley Mountain an enjoyable challenge for all levels.

Those who prefer quieter activities will also enjoy Old Forge. The area is filled with one-of-a-kind restaurants and shops, and all are welcome to swim at the public beach. There are also opportunities to go horseback riding and golfing nearby. The area is a wonderland for hikers, fishermen, and paddlers, from novice to expert.

Historically-inclined visitors will enjoy the scenic train rides and lake cruises. Fans of performing and visual arts will love View Arts Center.
