The Adirondack Park contains more than 3,000 lakes and ponds and 6,000 miles of rivers and streams; the largest lake being beautiful Lake Champlain.  Adirondack paddling fun ranges from whitewater chutes to glassy shiny ponds.   The Adirondacks remain one of the world's great destination of wilderness canoeing & kayaking.  The acquisitions of the Park continue to increase, so we welcome your contribution (or paddling story) of your tall tale experience while visiting our Park. 


The newest fun is Geo caching spots.  Go find one, or make one, and have a nice treasure hunt while paddling our beautiful Adirondack scenery.
