Tupper Lake, Adirondacks

Welcome to Tupper Lake, New York

Picture it: rolling hills and mountains, fresh air, endless forests of stunning foliage, sparkling lakes, and a quaint community full of character and flavor. This is Tupper Lake.

Nature is never very far away, even from downtown. Stroll through town and get fresh donuts, local birch tea, or a unique Adirondack souvenir. A little farther out, miles of mellow (and not-so-mellow) hiking trails offer countless adventures and unforgettable scenery. The Tupper Lake Triad hiking challenge is a great adventure that includes a fire tower peak, and breathtaking views of the Adirondacks. Looking for a "challenge" on the water? Try the Tupper Lake Triad paddling challenge to explore three peaceful routes to canoe, kayak, or SUP, surrounded by the colors of autumn.


While the Adirondacks may be known for spectacular mountain vistas and picturesque towns, Tupper Lake also boasts some of the darkest skies in the Northeast that are perfect for stargazing. By night, take in the cosmos and by day, golf on a historic course or reel in your next fishing story on Big Tupper Lake - each day offers unlimited possibilities to experience the great outdoors. Fall is full of fun and adventure, a perfect place to enjoy a family vacation or a quiet retreat for two. 


There's no shortage of restaurant options here, and beer lovers will be thrilled to learn there is the outstanding Raquette River Brewing. Downtown sidewalks are not crowded, but alive with local spirit and unique buys.

Discover Tupper Lake, because every day leads to a new adventure.
