Interstate 87: The Adirondack Northway: Schroon Lake

Schroon Lake

Beach and Pier Town Beach and Docks

Schroon Lake is a great little lakeside community with good swimming and fantastic scenery. It is a friendly place with a large variety of lodgings, restaurants and other services and boasts a small supermarket too, which is the last one for about 50 miles. Schroon Lake has a nice beach-lakeside park that is well tended. With the hills west of the Northway and east of the lake, it is in its own beautiful little valley. While the summer is the main season, it is open all year round and even boast a town golf course, free beach, boat launch and picnic area. The beach's sand area might be small, but the park surrounding it is first class. At the bandstand and surrounding parl, pictured above, is where most of the free local events like live music and plays are presented.

Schroon Falls, Schroon Falls,

Schroon Falls, 4 miles north of the town center on US 9, is a great hangout. There is a good swimming and tubing spot there, plus lots of state land. People put their tubes and rafts into the river here and float down the river to the lake, about 3 miles. Schroon Lake is fed by the Schroon River and the southern end of the lake is in Warren County at Pottersville; where it reverts back into the Schroon River until it meets the Hudson River in Warrensburg. The Northway also follows the river from south of Exit 30 to just south of Exit 24.

One word of caution: In the winter, the Northway by Schroon Lake, north of Exit 27 where it overlooks the lake, is prone to black ice. Be careful in this part in cold wet weather! Be prepared for ice and wintry driving by making sure your vehicle is Winterized. New wipers, brakes and tires can make all the difference while driving in the snow. Parts Geek has parts for every make and model vehicle. Brake pads from Parts Geek can be easily installed by even a novice home mechanic.
