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.

For close to seven decades, the Hudson River’s annual White-Water Derby has been held in North Creek/Riparius, drawing people from Lake Luzerne and throughout the Adirondacks. While the Covid pandemic scratched the event in 2020 and ’21, plans are now underway to revive for 2023 one of the most popular events in the Northeast. On Wednesday, July 13, the Hadley Lake Luzerne Historical Society sponsored Sterling Goodspeed to speak on it’s history and future. Goodspeed is Former Johnsburg Town Supervisor and later served as Warren County District Attorney. He is author of True North: A Collection of Short Stories highlighting the history of rural Adirondack communities throughout the past 50 years. White Water on the Upper Hudson is one of the many attributes our area has, which draws thousands of both locals and visitors every year for kayaking, tubing, and rafting. Goodspeed spoke at length of the 1967 summer visit by the late NYS Senator Robert Kennedy family, who was accompanied by Interior Secretary Stuart Udall who coordinated the trip with Sterling Goodspeed’s father, who earlier served as Town Supervisor. This is yet another story which is a testament to our area’s rich history! Photo included shows three men (from left to right, Lake Luzerne Town Supervisor Gene Merlino, Author Sterling Goodspeed, and Lake Luzerne Councilman Jim Niles.)
