As you have heard, Fulton County is home to 44 Lakes. But, what are those lakes?
Fulton County’s largest lake, The Great Sacandaga has over 125 miles of shore line and covers 42 square miles. Some say it is “The Best Kept Secret of the Adirondacks!” It is a place of year round activity – boating, swimming and fishing in the spring and summer, leaf peeping in the fall and ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter. Come see this beautiful secret for yourself! www.visitsacandaga.com
Caroga Lake, actually two lakes (East and West Caroga) connected by a short canal like passageway is a beautiful vacation spot. And just, like the Great Sacandaga it’s a four season destination. The lake is surrounded by a small community full of friendly people. www.carogalake.com
Another beautiful lake that is open to the public is Pine Lake, a small lake with a friendly community feel. There is a large public beach, a beach volleyball court, paddleboat rentals, ice cream and much more! It is the perfect family vacation location; rent a cabin or a campsite at one of the campgrounds! www.pinelakepark.com or www.southernadirondackpines.com
