Lake Luzerne, a Scenic Town in Upstate NY & the Adirondacks

 

Come to Lake Luzerne to enjoy a confluence of waters. Here, the Hudson River squeezes into a narrow gorge, tumbling over the dramatic Rockwell Falls. Water from the Great Sacandaga Reservoir joins the river in a flurry of white water. Further downstream, the river widens into “The Bay,” a stretch of water broad enough for water skiing. For those who seek quiet water, a chain of four beautiful lakes offer fishing, camping and boating with two public swimming beaches on Lake Luzerne itself.

Lake Luzerne has catered to visitors since President Grant came here for rest and recreation after the Civil War. The grand old hotels of that day have given way to modern inns and restaurants, while new tennis and basketball courts, a miniature golf course, and three local history museums, along with summer concerts and craft shows, offer a variety of family fun. Two riverside parks also flank the downtown area.

Lake Luzerne is the home of a worldwide renowned music camp. In winter, snowmobilers can ride over 200 miles of forest trails. Signs for the “Dude Ranch Trail” hearken back to the days after World War II, when the old logging camps found new life as Dude Ranches. The Rodeo is still going strong after more than 60 years and several stables along Route 9N still offer horseback riding.

Residents throughout the Town of Lake Luzerne are fortunate to have a dedicated team of professionals working in it’s Highway Department and Buildings & Grounds Departments. Over the past few months, efforts have been stepped up to address the ongoing maintenance required of a community like ours. “Having to contend with the challenges of four seasons, with temperatures ranging from over 100 Degrees in the summer – to 15 below zero in the winter, our outdoor properties, roadways and municipal landmarks really take a beating”, so says Highway Superintendent Ron Deuel. As of this writing, Ron and his work force are initiating the repaving of Mountain Road and are focused on restoring this important artery for all residents. As Ron and his counterpart in the Building & Grounds Department, Rick Carajval will note, “The town’s public gathering spots, town offices, beaches, Pavilion waterways and civic sites serve an important purpose to our community. Whether accurate or not, the aesthetics, maintenance and upkeep of our local landmarks relay a message about the efficacy of what goes on inside the operations of our town management”. In early June, a renewed effort to beautify both the Wayside and Pierpont Public Beaches have been undertaken. A distinctive landscape design was completed at Wayside beach, a new septic system was installed at Pierpont and restoration of the original 1930’s Historic Cobblestone Walls at the Pierpont Beach Parking lot are just now being completed. The Town leadership of Supervisor Gene Merlino, Councilman Paul Lewandowski, Councilman Mike Fazio, Councilman Jim Niles and Councilman Tim Hanlon are proud of their dedicated team who care so greatly for our local landmarks and outdoor recreation facilities.
