We're easy to find!

Tupper Lake and Piercefield are situated in just about the exact middle of the 6-million acre Adirondacks. The town is easy to reach because it's at the crossroads of the Adirondack and Olympic Scenic Byways. Both roads more than earn their scenic designations. A gentle rolling landscape of hills, lakes, ponds, and streams makes this the headquarters for the "10 Rivers Region." From within a 30-mile radius, one can explore the 10 major rivers that flow out of the Adirondacks.

The town sits on the shore of 9-mile long Tupper Lake and has a distinct history of pioneers, loggers, and Adirondack guides. The trains arrived in Tupper in the 1890s and much of the modern town was built in the boom years that followed. Tupper was the lumber capital of New York in the early 1900s. You can see the huge site of the giant mill that burned in a spectacular fire down on the lake shore. Today the site is a public park, and home to local events, including the annual Tupper Lake Woodsmen's Days festival where lumberjack skills are on display every July.
