An awesome year-round recreation destination

In every season of the year, the wild lands surrounding Tupper Lake and Piercefield are a vast playground for outdoor recreation. With endless possibilities for adventurous fun, there's something for everyone to discover and enjoy! 

  • In warmer weather, the area rivers, lakes, and ponds are a play area for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, water-skiing, swimming, and more. Explore the waters of the area by challenging yourself to complete the Tupper Lake Paddling Triad or make it a perfect Adirondack summer day by spending some time enjoying the refreshing water at Little Wolf Beach.

  • Autumn turns the mountains into a landscape of vibrant hues, making this the ideal time to hike and mountain bike the trails, paddle the wooded banks of the Raquette River, and enjoy 18 holes at the Tupper Lake Golf Club. Grab your fleece and enjoy the scenery!

  • Cold weather open up new possibilities for fun in the woods and (frozen) lakes in and around the village. Snowmobile trails radiate out for hundreds of miles from Tupper Lake, making remote rides or visits to neighboring villages a breeze. The town's golf course gets transformed into a cross-country ski center in the winter, complete with lessons and grooming, and the waters of Simon Pond and Raquette Pond offer thick ice good for ice fishing.

Safety first

To be sure you have the safest and most enjoyable winter experience in the Adirondacks, you'll want to take measures to properly plan and prepare for your trip. Help keep yourself, others, and our natural resources safe!
