Once considered the "Highways of the Adirondacks," the rivers, lakes, and streams in the Tupper Lake area provide endless paddling opportunities.

Leave No Trace

That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
