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.
